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.
If you're looking for a Church that is perfect, well good luck. No Church is perfect, because the Church is comprised of human beings and no human being is perfect. Pastor Boswell has been with us for around five years now and his solid, no punches pulled messages have made a big difference in how we see our community and the world. Immanuel's focus is no longer on buildings, activities and outward appearances like the large cross, but it is now the people who live in our community, city, state, country and world. Our goal is to spend more and more time, effort and money on reaching the lost for Christ. That is our number one mission. On Sunday, we now have a contemporary service at 9:30 am and a traditional service at 10:50 am. Wednesday nights are filled with fun for everyone. Wednesday night dinner is served at 5:00 pm and is followed by a bible study for all ages. At 6:20 pm, Awanas kicks off in the main gym for Kids Preschool age through sixth grade. Older children have their own bible study and activities up stairs in the youth area with Brother Matt. I have been attending Immanuel since 1993 and have been through many ups and downs, but there is no other church in the city that I would rather call home.
If you want to experience true worship and kingdom teaching, well New Zion is this place!! My life has been fully blessed by the teaching Pastor Williams brings forth. Alot of people don't agree with the way he teaches, for example, he may use a pet word here and there, but this man of God is straight forward. Like it or not, we need more preachers who God (not man) has chosen to bring us back to Him and fullfil the destiny and plan our Creator has for us to do. So come and be blessed spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially..... New Zion Baptist Church!! Sunday mornings 11 am and Tuesday night 7pm. Other awesome things happening at this place, praise team, praise dancer's, food ministry, RSW (REACHING SUCCESS WORLDWIDE) formally known as New Zion Christian Academy, Agape Daycare Center and a host of other organizations in this body of Christ... Go and be blessed
My family and I are new to the area and have been searching for a church home. The pastor at New Spring is a wonderful speaker. The church is big but I have been to big churches and they still know how to bring people together. This church does not find that important. You can come here week after week and no one will say a word to you unless they have the duty of door greeter. It is a shame because I would love to stay here for the preaching but we need fellowship too. If you want to get involved in anything else at this church, there is a short window to sign up but if you miss that window you have to wait for the next window which could be months away. I also find it distracting with all the coffee that is brought into the sanctuary...a girl sat next to me one week and could not stop slurping...just took away from the worship experience.
Honey Tree Academy is awesome. The center is clean, beautiful, and safe. The small private environment is just what I wanted for my daughter. The teachers are professional educators with college degrees and are incredible in their interactions with the children. The curriculum is challenging, but fun for the kids. I am amazed with what my daughter has learned in just two months! She comes home singing and excited about school! You won't find a better or more professional early childhood center in Wichita.
I adore this school! Both of my daughters have gone to this school over a period of 3 years. They are very education oriented. They start their cirriculum at a Kindergarten level and move with the child. Both my girls were reading at 4yrs and both are excited every day about learning. I can not say enough good things about the staff, who are kind and caring. They are very structured and well disiplined. We recommend them to all of our friends!
As a mother and a teacher I have witnessed tree house learning center first hand and have to say that the center is very clean awesome teachers and wonderful bosses I have worked in many childcare facilities and have had my children at many of them as well but never in all my time felt the comfort and love that you get from here I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for great childcare or a fulfilling job working with children.
This a fantastic church offering interesting sermons/messages and great modern music every week. It's very relaxed and informal. I haven't left after a service once without something to think about and compare to my own life. Try it out- you won't be disappointed.
I worked at tree house for 6 years and it is the best daycare ever. The staff is awesome.Mandy and Darla, Katie are so nice, funny,and always there for you. The children and the parents are wonderful. Its really one big happy family. I miss you guys!
