Why Tamika Rocks!

Tamika isn't just the owner; she is the dream weaver, the foundation layer, and the heart that pumps love and wisdom into every corner of our community. With boundless vision and an indomitable spirit of innovation, Tamika is the embodiment of what we lovingly call 'Village Wisdom'! 

Our Village

Driven by a lifelong passion for holistic child development, Tamika envisioned a sanctuary where each young learner could grow roots and spread wings. She saw not just a childcare center, but a vibrant learning community that would make every family feel like part of a bigger, loving village.

Our Commitment

Village is Tree is a learning community dedicated to developing a sense of mastery within our students and our students’ chosen village.


We partner to nurture an authentic love of knowledge and connection within one's self, community, and environment through foundational rooting.

We're crafting a sustainable future that nourishes the success of our childcare centers and enriches the all-around growth of our students and their communities. Think of it as weaving a tapestry of care and progress, where every thread counts!

Our Motivation


Thanks to the Emilia Reggio approach, we weave project-based learning into our curriculum, blossoming in nontraditional learning environments.

Reggio Theory


As we gear our students for life beyond Village Tree, we embrace the academic-based approach of HighScope, ensuring our students are well-prepared for the next stage of their educational journey.



We owe a nod to Waldorf for highlighting the importance of play-based learning. This approach gifts our students with abundant time and space for joyful, creative play and imagination, fostering caring environments that nurture the senses, a hallmark visible throughout Village Tree.

Waldorf Theory


We firmly embrace the concept of child-centered communities, where teachers serve as a resource, stepping in when needed. Our approach, encompassing visual, auditory, kinesthetic (through touch), and verbal learning opportunities, ensures that all our students are equipped to learn in diverse ways.

If you've ever wondered who pairs the wisdom of elders with the energy of youth or who turns ordinary moments into lifelong memories, that's Tamika for you. She is the kind of visionary who sees not just what is, but what could be.
