Rose Tree Day School
Rose Tree Day School is now...
Since 1979, Rose Tree Day School has operated as part of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Delaware County (UUCDC), falling under the church’s religious status as a non-profit organization. In October 2020, after careful consideration of both the church’s current and future evolution and the increasing complexities of running a day school, the UUCDC’s board made the determination to cease operations of the Rose Tree Day School effective June 30, 2021.
For more than 40 years, Rose Tree Day School has provided exemplary early childhood learning programming to the local community led for the past 30 years by Director, Andrea Sampson and Educational Coordinator, Marianne Conway. With the need for the type of high-quality programming and safe and nurturing environment that Rose Tree Day School provides at an all-time high, the decision was made to incorporate the school as its own independent entity under the continued leadership of Ms. Sampson and Ms. Conway bearing the new name of Rose Tree Early Learning Center (RTELC).
The mission of RTELC is to deliver an exemplary early childhood educational experience in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children and families in Delaware County, PA. Working with its families and community, RTELC promotes inclusion, diversity, compassion and support to help children prepare for a lifelong love of learning. Distinguished by teaching excellence, RTELC is committed to ensuring that the needs and strengths of each child are realized.
RTELC will maintain its current location at 145 W. Rose Tree Rd. through a lease agreement made with UUCDC and will operate as an independent 501(c) 3 non-profit organization beginning July 1, 2021.
