A Star Rating That Promises Above-And-Beyond Quality

Welcome to A Family Tree!

Both Warwick residents for most of our lives, we wanted to take our years of child care and youth leadership experience and open a program that helped provide parents with safe, affordable childcare during working hours. A Family Tree Daycare was incorporated in November 2007 as A Family Tree School Age Enrichment Program, LLC.

Our focus was to provide exciting and innovative programming that would give children opportunities to connect with the Warwick community and support and foster the growth of these future leaders. Working with our professional teaching staff, A Family Tree Daycare has grown from one school-age location serving just 25 families in April of 2008 to operating three locations, including child care services for infants, toddlers, pre-kindergarten, and school-age children. We are proud and honored to be a leader in child care services.

Come and meet us.
