The Language Tree was founded in 2012 by a small group of 22 parents who wanted to create a preschool specializing in language acquisition for their own children. They wanted a loving and nurturing environment for language immersion. The school began with a staff of two, no location in which to hold the school, a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of seven members, with only the prepaid tuition of the board. They were able to lease a space in a local church to run the school. After two years of growing the school, they began the process to become a licensed preschool and to move to a larger space. The board found their current location and was able to make some renovations to make the building work for their current enrollment and allow for some growth. They became a non-profit, licensed preschool able to have 60 kids in enrollment at any given time.
