Trustees and Patron
Author and pioneer of children’s television, Joy Whitby has agreed to be Patron of the Treehouse Trust.
Joy said: “I am delighted to be Patron of the Treehouse Trust having admired the dedication and the imaginative way Lee and Sharon run their “gang”. The children are learning to think for themselves as well as understand the importance of teamwork. They are living proof of the success of the founders’ teaching methods and are well equipped at the end of their time at the Treehouse to move on to the next stage of their education”.
