Apple Tree Preschool

Our preschool program is a Christian based program. Apple Tree starts with the Young 3's curriculum and advances through the 4's, well preparing our students for kindergarten. The Young 3's and 3's programs are socialization based programs:  learning to take turns, following simple directions. We introduce the letters, shapes, colors, scissor skills, and gluing skills. The 4's and Prek have a more structured academic program. Each class has guidelines to follow, but the variety of each class depends on each teacher's individual personality.

Remember, at this age we learn through play!

We have a wide range of activities, special days, and parties. We have chapel day once a week where we listen to stories and sing sons about Jesus.  We celebrate all of the holidays and what a busy schedule we keep! All these activities combined adds greatly to the preschool experience. Some of our special activities include our Fall Festival, Thanksgiving Feasts, Christmas Programs, Apple Tree Olympics, and the end of the year Ice Cream Parties. These are just a few of the things that make Apple Tree special. All of our activities take place during school hours.
