Preschool is more than just daycare.

Play-Based Learning

A lot of planning goes into making sure that your child has a fun and rewarding experience. We plan our activities weeks in advance and keep our families informed of the activities we are doing each week. We offer extended activities that your child can bring home to continue their learning with family.

We have been serving Vista and our surrounding community for over ten years.

I can't really say enough good things about Big Tree, but I will close with my most important thought: the teachers. Ms. Rebecca, and all of her staff, are some of the warmest, kindest, and patient women I have met. You can tell they really are invested in making sure each child's individual needs are met, and that every parent's concerns and needs are heard and met as well. They are always very communicative and transparent, and are willing to do whatever they can to keep their students and families happy. It's a sweet gem of a place for children to spend their days growing. In fact, most days it is quite hard to convince my kids to come home, they are having such a blast!

We have such big love for Big Tree. My little one LOVES it here, and she is learning so much with the caring, experienced teachers and the wonderful, diverse group of kids. She is growing leaps and bounds socially, emotionally, and academically, and she is already learning so much about her connection to the larger world. The nature hikes, the special guest story & music time, the incredible outdoor play spaces, the dancing, the art, the yoga, the songs, the strong but flexible structure of the day and the rhythms of the week - seriously, it makes me want to go to preschool again. It means the world to me that my daughter absolutely loves this school. I know that this is the best educational foundation I could ever ask for.
