Apple Tree’s Pre-School program continues its best practice by combining children ages 3-5 years old allowing for small group sizes and lower ratios which research has proven to be beneficial for all children. Our Philosophy is developed around a holistic approach where children grow cognitively, physically, emotionally, creatively, and socially. We believe skills are strengthened through hands-on learning experiences and strive to build foundations for future success that will last a lifetime. Preschoolers enrolled at Apple Tree are offered enrichment programs that may include Kindergarten readiness, educational field trips, outdoor Science Education and lots of physical activity in our indoor Kid’s Gym.
