About Us

Our Staff

Janet Schoff – Director/Head Teacher

I have been in the business of children for over 35 years. I have raised 4 children, all adults with families of their own. For 14 years I was a licensed home childcare moving into preschool in 1995 adding 21 more years of experience with children.

My college degree is a major in Special Education from the UMF. I continue to add to my education with courses in Early Childhood, classroom management, special needs instruction, math curriculum, and more. I feel very lucky to be doing what I love—working with children and helping them to be the best they can be!  As much as I teach them, the children teach me much more!

Ellen Michniewicz – Assistant Teacher

I have been at Learning Tree since 2005. I have a degree in secondary education and have taught everything from pre K to high school. My true passion is teaching young children, giving them a foundation on which to grow. Every day, I strive to help them discover something new and to learn something new myself. I live in York with my husband and three daughters.
