Children's Programs

"As a parent of two children who have attended the Treetops Children's
Center for over six years, I feel as though it is the most diverse,
comprehensive childcare program in Otsego County.

“I've had the privilege to use the childcare program and the Treetops Summer Camp Sylvan. Both of these programs come with my highest regards. Sheila has succeeded
in developing a safe, friendly, fun and educational environment for my children.

“ I have and continue to recommend Treetops Childcare Programs to any parent.”
 — Rhonda A.

The Treetops Children's Center — Activities Designed
with the Development of Children in Mind

Your child(ren) become the center-focus at the Children's Center at Treetops Resort. Like all of our programs, our children's center is run by the best highly-trained professionals we can find.

A Simple Philosophy, Amazing Results!

Our philosophy of "hands on" learning and activities is based on sound child development principles. Pre-school children participate in art activities; music and language; large group and individual activities, as well as learning to interact with other children.

Hours of Operation

Days Closed

The Pre-School activities schedule coincides with the Gaylord Community Schools calendar and does not operate when public school is closed.


Children ages 3 and older:

Kid-focused and kid-friendly programs are our stock in trade. We’re not sure who likes and appreciates our programs more: The kids who participate or the parents of our kids!

The Treetops Children's Center Pre-School Program is designed for children ages 3 – 5, full day child care because mom and dad have full days of their own. Our Children's Center provides children of all ages with an enriching and safe environment.

Pre-School is included for children 3 and older as an added benefit of the full day program. The daily schedule includes art, outdoor play, story time, large and small group activities and free choice play.

The day is designed to include quiet and active play as well as addressing the social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs of children. The center is state licensed and open 51 weeks of the year.

Complete with an indoor play structure, the Children's Center is the starting point for learning and fun. Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack are provided.
