Fun Fact: February is staff training month at Growing Tree. Our teachers have made a commitment to complete a minimum of 20 hours of professional development annually. Our goal is to have each teacher attain a STEP 8, 9, or 10 in the Oregon Registry. Currently half of our teaching staff has been awarded a Step 8 or higher in the registry. Just one more way GT shows its commitment to quality early childhood education.

Inclement Weather Policy
For your review, our Inclement Weather/Emergency Closure Policy is as follows:
- Growing Tree does NOT follow the public-school schedule for snow/weather days or 2-hour delays. It is our goal to remain open as usual.
- On these days when the public schools have closures, I will send out an early alert message confirming our status via BRIGHTWHEEL
- In the event we need to close the center due to weather or an emergency, we will contact you first via BRIGHTWHEEL and then post closure information on Facebook.
- In the event of an emergency, if the situation allows, we will the contact you via phone once we are safe.
Immunization documentation is complete - Thank you
