Just want to let you know that my daughter has come home every day completely excited about her experiences at Pear Tree. She is absolutely loving the program! What more can we ask for?


It was a great experience for my daughter. Now she is asking me if she can go back to Pear Tree this summer ???? Thanks everyone.


My son and daughter had a great time at camp last week. As a parent I was also thrilled with how happy and stimulated they both seemed after. They were proud of their work and I had the sense that the camp allowed them to stretch their creative muscles a little. Please pass on my enthusiastic and positive feedback to your teachers and to Alexis.


My daughters have both been raving about Pear Tree’s camps — which is really saying something, believe me — I usually get a lot of “I don’t want to go”s when they’re signed up for camps!
