Best Of 2013: Child Day Care

The teachers at this high-performance preschool will tell you that anyone can teach kids reading and math, but Giving Tree teaches kids to be independent through social awareness. Not just eco-awareness, which is also in the curriculum, but literal awareness of those around them. "We've created a very nice family atmosphere," says owner and director Gisela Tilch. Kids learn to think about others, to use kind words, and to help others. "We are nurturing the spirit of the child," says Tilch. At the end of the day, instead of feeling worn out from school, as many children do, the kids from Giving Tree tend to be ready to help. They even go home singing and energized. Happy kids, happy teachers, happy parents. Win!— Bret Wright
