FAQs

How are you different from the typical child care center?
Wishing Tree focuses on the needs of parents who need just a few hours of care for their children several times a month in and out of typical child care centers. As a result, Wishing Tree is open from 8am to midnight every day of the week. We also host fun birthday parties.
