Apple Blossoms: Early Childhood Program
Rosie cheeks, curious minds, and lots of giggles represent our Apple Blossoms. This Early Childhood program facilitates learning through art and music for children age 18 months to 2 ½ years and emphasizes socialization and language development. Hands-on learning activities foster group interaction, exploration, and following directions. Each day is a new venture to develop and promote love for learning and independence. Apple Blossoms is guided by a teacher certified in early childhood education and offers a limited group size for half-day only, up to 3 days per week.
Apple Tree Preschool
There is much research that suggests a child’s early years are important for the development of intelligence. An excellent preschool program should stimulate and challenge a child to develop to their fullest potential. It is our belief and experience that when placed in an environment of happiness and cooperation, children respond positively and develop fully.
At the preschool level, the school day is a balance of learning and fun. Each day includes art, music, and physical activities to promote strong gross motor skills. As they are ready, students work to develop learning skills in pre-reading and pre-math. The children are introduced to the concept of “content learning” through lessons in science and social studies. Content learning is a technique that introduces subject matter in an interesting and fun way allowing the child to create a memory bank of information to pull from in future lessons at the elementary level.
