About Us

Tree of Knowledge is a child-centered Christian preschool committed to nurturing the whole child: spiritually, intellectually, socially and emotionally.  While growing academically, we believe a child learns through play.  We are a hands on, playbased preschool with 50+ years of successful academic preparation for Kindergarten and beyond.   

Our staff is required to have current certification in Child and Infant CPR and First Aid,  pass the Child Abuse and Neglect courses, hold an Oregon Food Handlers card, participate in continuing education courses.  They must also pass a background check through Oregon's Central Background Registry prior to employment.

Tree of Knowledge Christian Preschool has been a ministry of East County Church of Christ for over 50 years. Our preschool has been serving the Gresham-Troutdale community since 1973.



"Tree of Knowledge Christian Preschool has provided a strong educational base for my children. As an educator, I recognize the strength of the teachers, the curriculum, and the learning environment that this preschool provides."
