Preschool and Daycare in Pemberton, NJ (+ Summer Camp!)

At Laurel Tree Academy, we’re here to be your easy choice for preschool and daycare in Pemberton, NJ. From our location in nearby Lumberton, we offer high quality daycare and education programs for children aged six weeks to six years, with a summer camp up to age 12. Laurel Tree is a family owned and operated daycare and education center, and as parents ourselves, we know how important it is to you to find the best care for your child.

As we learned before we opened our own child care center, the larger and corporate “chain store” daycare centers lacked personalization for families, and they also experience a high turnover. Our goal was to offer a better choice for families, and to be actively involved in children’s real growth.

Safe And Fun Preschool and Daycare in Pemberton, NJ

We offer an education curriculum that makes learning easier and more fun for your child, including High Scope® and Handwriting Without Tears® programs. Our facility is kept clean at all times, and features a large natural playground. Our educational programs teach children a variety of subjects, including math, science, literacy, art, technology, and are designed to help improve your child’s critical thinking, problem solving, and social skills.

Our doors are locked throughout the day, and anyone entering the facility needs to use a personalized PIN. We do, of course, encourage parents to visit and sit in on their child’s experiences. When visiting, parents must ring the doorbell and present proper identification. Laurel Tree conducts fire drills periodically, and we have an emergency evacuation plan in place if needed.

We also offer a popular summer camp program for children ages 3-9 that is full of activities and learning experiences for your child…Laurel Tree offers activities and trips specific for age groups, which include swim lessons, visiting magicians and musicians, camp night, and trips to fun places like Storybook Land, Diggerland, Discovery Museum and much more…your child will want to come back every year!

Laurel Tree is a state-licensed facility, and our teachers and staff are highly qualified, experienced, and carefully screened with a thorough background check. Our staff members are CPR-certified and have first aid education. We meet and frequently exceed the standards defined by the NJ Department of Children and Families’ Office of Licensing. Many of our teachers have been with us for years, and we have very small turnover.

You can also stay connected with your child throughout the day using the Brightwheel app…we’ll keep you posted on your child’s growth with photos and daily communications, which you can view from any device, and ensure your peace of mind.
