About Us

The Children’s Learning Tree first opened its door in 1999. Then owner, Sue Phelps, wanted a christian based environment for children to play, learn, and grow in their journey to the best possible start in life.

Our History

The Learning Tree began in Somerset in 1999 when founder Sue Phelps saw the need for a christian based childcare facility in the Pulaski County area. For 20 years, the center grew into the amazing program it is today through the love and nurturing of its teachers and staff. In January 2020, Sue decided to retire and her daughter and son-in-law, Melissa and Andy Mount, purchased the business. Still adhering to the morals and values that Mrs. Sue held dear, the Mount’s continue business as usual.

Coming Soon!

Construction on our new state of the art playgrounds will break ground Summer 2021. They will include poured rubber foundations and all new play structures. We are so excited to share some of these plans with you!
