From Tiny Seeds…

Established in 1971, Shirley Black and Dolores Hudson founded The Learning Tree Day Nursery. Our Not-for-Profit 501(C)3 organization was the "first" of its kind in North St. Louis offering day care services to families. Our services was broadened in 1981 to care for infants and toddlers. In 1992, the enrollment of Senior adults proved to be yet another "first" for The Learning Tree in the St. Louis Area as well as the industry of Care Service Providers. Thus, "Intergenerational" care service was created!

To date, the cornerstone of The Learning Tree Intergenerational Care (SM) has taken on a life of its own in providing quality care and resources to children and Seniors with emphasis on facilitating a structured and consistent curriculum that nurtures the holistic needs of the individual and their families. The primary benefit of Intergenerational Care (SM) is the positive effect(s) on the area of cognitive, physical, spiritual, emotional, social and nutritional development of the individual.

Our Vision & Purpose

Our passion lives in creating an environment where the “young at heart and the hearts of the young” can develop tangible, respectful and compassionate relationships with one another.

The Learning Tree provides quality care to children, seniors, and their families by offering programs in the area of cognitive, physical, spiritual, emotional, social and nutritional development.

We welcome your loved one into our midst. They will enjoy some of the best days of their lives!
