Such a shame to see a sad review of a great place. I have had children enrolled with Treehouse since 2008 and over the years have been very pleased with the services and childcare provided. Preschool and daycare is obviously somewhere that you need to feel comfortable with and anytime I have had questions or concerns, I have been able to speak to any one of the staff or owners, even reaching out to them at home if needed. They are a compassionate and skilled center and I have recommended Treehouse to several of my friends and co-workers, who have also enrolled children in the center and are loving it. My children have excelled under the cirriculum offered by the staff and look forward to going to 'school' each day. Having come from a center where my infant was actually hit in the face, bruised and seriously hurt...having filed a report with the KDHE on that particular center, I can say that I have never experienced anything CLOSE to this at Treehouse. I see nothing wrong with inclusion in schools and children with Special Needs benefit from attending regular preschools, just as the regular students benefit from having special needs children in class. Kids will be kids whehter they have special needs or not. Kids/toddlers hit, bite, spit...they are kids and in my experience with the center, when those instances occur, they are addressed and the parents are notified. While those instances can be upsetting, they are, unfortunately part of sending a child to daycare or school. Where someone enrolls their child is an independent choice. That said, the other parent obviously made the choice to re-enroll their child somewhere else, so best of luck. In the years I have been at Treehouse, I haven't experienced anything that would prompt me to pull my children out of the school. In fact, I wish they would expand the center and open an infant room. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and it is a shame that a family had an unpleasant experience. However, I give KUDOS to Treehouse and their staff. My girls are quite happy, thrive in the environment and I feel they are safe in the center. I have peace of mind when I leave them to head to work and that is the bottom line. If you question the center, set up a tour and see for yourself. They are an open book...and welcome families to visit and see if Treehouse is a 'fit'. Signed--ONE HAPPY MOM of 2 TuTus

Having to pull my only child out of a daycare that was negligent of her needs I was in state of panic and concern to find the right day care option for her. I had never heard of The Treehouse Learning Center when I and a friend who was facing the same problems pulled up to their doors. The Director welcomed us into the facility with no prior appointment which was not the norm with other places I had called and showed us around. I felt peace in the facility and when I was told about their parental webcam access my husband and I were sold. A place that has nothing to hide will not give access to parents to view each and every classroom so I find it very disturbing that such a bad review of the place was written. I have recommended this place to others, one of whom has a special needs child and they are very pleased with how tolerant the staff and owners have been in accommodating their child with additional help at NO extra cost. With a degree in Special Education I would expect that you understand the need to include children with special needs rather then said them off to a separate institution and treat them like outcasts. I have spoken to many parents at the Tree House Learning Center and they all rave about the care and education their children receive. My daughter will be attending elementary school in the fall and I keep tell Tree House that they need to have a school that goes all the way to high school as I feel comfortable and know that my child is well cared for and would hate to have to change. I travel alot and call the Treehouse to check on my daughter, they are always happy to speak with me about her progress and even take time to e-mail me photos of her which is out of the scope of their services. I think that before you write poor reviews about any institution in the futher you will need to examine yourself and see if maybe you should have taken extra time to care and work with the providers. As the saying goes it never rains in front of one person's door and one of your children may need that extra care one day and I hope for their sake the are accommodated.
In response to Madison's review: We understood the concern as a first time working mom having to trust new people to care for her children. What she did see on the playground was her son adjusting in the first 30 minutes of being dropped off. He was crying, as many new kids do. The staff tried several techniques to calm him, but under my advice I said to give him options then give him a moment to calm on his own. When he came inside he found a book he liked and the whole momentum changed. Understandably it's hard on both parents and kids to make the adjustments so quickly. On behalf of the staff and facility we regret that was her experience, but many kids take time to settle. We work with many different kids and put our best into helping them in that stage.
