Our Story


Since it opened the doors in September 2001, The Learning Treehouse Preschool and Day Care has been committed to helping parents follow their instincts to provide their children with quality care and a love of learning in a a safe environment. We believe childhood, filled with early learning in a language rich environment and discovery, is the foundation so vital for children to grow and learn in the world around them.


Our owner, Ashley Boland, is a graduate of Georgia Southern University (1997) with a master’s degree in education and a mother to three boys, Tanner (16), Luke (15) and Finn (3). She understands the importance of choosing the right care for your child and all three of her children have grown up in The Learning Treehouse! Tanner was diagnosed with Lissencephally at four months old and he became the inspiration for the staff and center to provide care for children and families with both, typical and those with special needs. This is such an important need in our community and industry and we are proud to lead the way. If you become part of “The Treehouse Family” you will get to experience Pre-K in our Tanner Hall building, adjacent to our main building complex.


Previously teaching special education in Chatham County and now a special needs Pre-K teacher serving our military families at Fort Stewart, Ashley continues to celebrate early childhood education as an important step for all children and believes learning through play is how every child should be introduced to learning concepts.

Jana Fox, our current director, worked in The Treehouse toddler classroom as lead teacher for over three years before joining our administration team. Jana has a diploma in Early Childhood Program Administration and has earned The National Administrator Credential. Ashley and Jana worked as director and assistant director before Ashley returned to her passion for teaching special needs children. In August of 2008, Jana took the helm of The Learning Treehouse as director and continues overseeing the daily operations of the center.

Amy Hudson joined our team in 2007 as administrative assistant after teaching in child care for over 7 years. Mrs. Hudson has since taken over as Assistant Director and assists Jana in daily operations of the center as well.

Since 2001, The Learning Treehouse has expanded with the previously mentioned, Tanner Hall, to accommodate a Georgia Lottery funded Pre-K and after school program, Additional curriculum, including music and movement classes for toddlers and ballet lessons for three and four year old students is offered weekly. With each upcoming school year, The Treehouse welcomes new children and families enrolling in our center and sadly says goodbye to those who have “grown up” and graduated from our Pre-kindergarten program.

As each year passes and our students move into classrooms in surrounding elementary schools, The Treehouse certainly treasures the memories created with each child and family.
