    The Joshua Tree is an amazing educational program that truly sets the foundational learning for early childhood education. The school is located in the heart of Northern Liberties which brings a city experience and easily accessible. The center and owner have operated for many years in the educational environment with research based practices and pedagogy to service our early learners. The center is also filled with hands on opportunities for exploratory learning. Children from my family and friends have attended and had a truly amazing experience.

    Mrs.J and the teachers at Joshua Tree Early Learning Center have been great early learning teachers and cared for my child until he graduated and moved onto Kindergarten. He left the center ready for the rigor of elementary school. I appreciate how they nurtured him and kept him safe.

    My child was kicked out of TJT during the owner’s power trip in February 2023. Parents raised concerns, had questions about them abiding to ratios with recent teachers quitting or being fired, and being honest about illnesses they were reporting for children. I’m NOT sorry for advocating for my child, and it’s really unfortunate that a business owner does not accept valid concerns, questions, or criticism from parents. It’s clear it’s an owner issue rather than a parent issue when you decide to unenroll infants with a two week notice when you know that it’s difficult to find safe (if any!) childcare in that time frame. Yes TJT is cheaper than other daycares in the area, so just be mindful that the savings are not worth the stress!To clarify for those who think we are just bashing the school- we were FORCED to unenroll. Parents should be allowed to ask questions and raise concerns that can be addressed in a professional manner without being dismissed from a center. We didn’t have that option. It’s incredibly concerning that they saying we fall under their enrollment reduction, but are supposedly still enrolling. On paper they may have tried to hide it and say it’s not personal, but it obviously is if you’re still enrolling new children to a center that just said they needed to remove your child (a minimum of 8 children were affected) because they were understaffed. Also, this was less than 24h after their zoom call where the owner said they were not understaffed and actually always had one additional teacher available if needed. There could have been more transparency on whether it was a reduction of 8% enrollment of the entire center compared to an almost entire infant classroom. Hard not to feel as if it wasn’t retaliation when the majority of parents on the call were from the infant room. If you made it this far and are still considering enrolling your child there- good luck.

    This was the first daycare my daughter ever attended. We initially fell in love with the caring teachers and things were great for the first few months. Then things unexpectedly took a turn for the worst. All of the issues stem from the owner and her poor leadership, namely her ability to communicate with parents and problem solve in a way that ensures the best interests of children and staff. I approached the owner to ask questions about abrupt staff turnover, lack of communication about said turnover, and the impact of turnover on classroom ratios. The owner’s response was nothing short defensive, combative, and simply dishonest. During a parent meeting with families who shared similar concerns, she shared that the center was overstaffed despite the recent turnover. The following day, she proceeded to unenroll over 50% of infants from their program citing staffing shortages. The impacted families had all expressed concerns so it was clear that she wanted to retaliate. As a K-12 administrator, I know firsthand that no school is perfect or without challenges. However, the owner cannot be trusted and has made clear that she has ZERO care or concern for children or parents who simply want the best for their children. No parent deserves to be treated poorly or to feel like they have to stay silent for fear of losing childcare. Enroll your child somewhere cares about your kids. Until there is a change in management, TJT is NOT that place!
