A School for Young Children

A historical part of Dallas Pre-K Education

The Learning Tree School, through the success of its founder, Judy Allen, has taught hundreds of children and has had the wonderful opportunity to teach multiple generations of children.  The Learning Tree staff consists of previous students and many students are children of previous students.  This generational success shows the pride and caring nature this wonderful place of learning has created.

Our Founder & Director
Judy Allen

Founder of The Learning Tree School, Judy Allen has been a teacher of young children for more than years and a workshop instructor for many more years.  She is co-author of "Cultural Awareness for Children," a teacher's resource book used in universities throughout the U.S. and abroad.
As a member of the Center for US/USSR Initiatives, she taught in schools in the former Soviet Union and in Lithuania two years, and presented at a seminar at the Teachers Pedagogical Institute in Vilnius, Lithuania.
She has been involved in work with orphanages in Russia and China for the past 16 years, helping to establish The Foster Grandmother Program at a children's hospital in St. Petersburg, Russia.  She also visited schools in Venezuela.
Judy brings these worldly endeavors to sculpt the school in which she founded for the betterment of the children.
3 Generations Teaching Together
Judy Allen, her daughter Dandi Weiss and her granddaughter, Nikki Weiss, together show exactly what The Learning Tree School has done over the past 45 years.  This school has taught and brought together several generations.  

Judy Allen, as director of the school, does not teach a specific classroom but is actively a part of the school's daily activities.  Judy directs the school and is a major part of each and every classroom and special event.
Dandi Weiss followed in her mother's footsteps and became a teacher and joined her mother at The Learning Tree.  She teaches 2- and 3-year-old classes.
Nikki, once a student, is now a teacher at the school just like her mother and her grandmother.  She teaches the Primer class.
A Lasting Impression
The Learning Tree School provides a unique environment for young children. Since 1968, the school has seen multiple generations graduate and move forward in their educational endeavors.  Alumni have now made their way across the country - from New York to Los Angeles - and all over the world. Many local alumni are now watching their own children grow at The Learning Tree much like they did many years ago.
