Jessica Dixon

Preschool Lead and Assistant Teachers!

Family in Bellevue

**About Us** Jessica Dixon and Alli Drinkard founded the Growing Tree Playcare & Preschool in 2013. After meeting at a home daycare as toddlers, Jessi and Alli became best friends immediately. By the age of 3, they knew they wanted to become Daycare Ladies and create a caring, cheerful, and loving environment like there home away from home they grew up attending. The Growing Tree philosophy is built on teaching compassion and social skills through play-based learning. At The Growing Tree, kids get to be kids! Children are given learning materials in which they can learn in their own ways, not forced to take part in any activity they are not interested in. Jessi and Alli are passionate about the joy of childhood and planting a seed for a life-long love of learning. Exciting News The Growing Tree is GROWING! In September 2016, they are opening a second preschool located 3 buildings away in Bellevue. The Treehouse Playcare & Preschool will follow the same play-based philosophy and values as The Growing Tree. Patience, flexibility, dedication, enthusiasm, creativity and passion are qualities we look for in our educators and care givers.
