Organization and Administration

Green Tree is governed by a seven-member board of directors for the Park Place Parents Association (“PPPA”). The Park Place Parents Association is comprised of parents or guardians who have children in the Center. Board members serve in staggered two-year terms. The board establishes policies and goals for the Center and shares responsibility with the Executive Director for maintaining communication among staff, parents, board and Executive Director. The PPPA employs the Executive Director, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Center. The director’s responsibilities include hiring and supervising the Center staff, carrying out the mandates of the board, acquiring equipment and supplies, paying bills, recruiting families, and ensuring a safe environment. The permanent staff includes a full-time cook. Staff is hired using a thorough screening process, including criminal background history check, fingerprinting, and federal background check. All permanent staff undergo a ninety-day probation period. Substitute teachers are thoroughly screened in the same manner as permanent employees and are give a program of orientation and basic overview of our philosophy and curriculum when they first work at the Center.


Tours are held once a month.
