Kindergarten - 7th Grade: After School Program
Our K-7th program offers activities and supervision for children in these grade levels after their regular school day has ended. These programs can include homework help, enrichment activities, sports, and games.
Additionally, we provide opportunities for children to meet new friends and socialize with their peers in a safe and supervised environment while their parents are at work.
English classes for younger kids, such as kindergarten through 2nd grade, center on developing students' reading, writing, and speaking skills. Students are taught basic language concepts, including the alphabet and sight words.
Teachers use a variety of activities to help older students develop their reading skills, such as independent reading, literature circles, and book clubs. They also teach students how to analyze texts, identify literary elements and literary devices, and understand the author's purpose and point of view.
Since Chinese is a complex language with several dialects and abstract concepts, It is essential to start with the basics. Our younger students begin by using flashcards and visual aids to help associate phrases relevant to daily life, such as numbers, colors, and everyday objects.
For more experienced speakers or Chinese-American speakers, we define what students already know and what they will be able to do with the language. With various teaching methods, such as lectures, group work, and discussions, students learn in a more hands-on setting.
Table tennis, also known as ping pong, is a sport people of all ages and skill levels can enjoy.
At Learning Tree, we experiment with different games and activities to give students a good pass-time while learning and developing in a variety of skills.
Included are: Hand/Eye Coordination, Tactical Thinking and Mental Acuity, Aerobic Exercise, and Improved Reflexes!
Math classes for younger kids, such as those in kindergarten through 2nd grade, will typically have a different focus and approach than math classes for older students. The curriculum will cover basic mathematical concepts such as counting, numbers, and shapes.
For older kids, such as those in 3rd through 6th grade, we cover more advanced mathematical concepts such as fractions, decimals, geometry, and introductory algebra.
Chess & Go!
Learning Chess and Go! can be beneficial for students in many ways. Chess and Go! forces players to think ahead and plan strategies that help problem-solving skills. These games require players to focus and concentrate for long periods, which can help students improve their focus and concentration in other areas of their lives.
At Learning Tree, we want to build a curriculum that enhances creativity. Through a mix of strategy and technique, students can learn new skills in a fun yet competitive environment.

Homework & Recess
Recess is a period of time during the program when students are given a break to play and/or catch up on homework. Recess typically takes place outdoors, weather allowing, or otherwise in the carpet area.
During recess, students are typically given free time to play and engage in activities of their own choosing.
By providing a safe space that allows our students time to relax their brain muscles, their performance in their studies and/or extracurricular activities improve as well!
