Our Philosophy


At Apple Tree Center we believe that children have a natural enthusiasm for and interest in learning. Since each child learns differently we provide a variety of stimulating activities that focus on the whole child. We provide developmentally appropriate activities that meet the needs and interests of families and their children. If children are presented information and given hands-on opportunities to grow and develop in a safe, loving, and nurturing environment they will become confident, enthusiastic, and capable learners. We provide children with opportunities for child–initiated as well as teacher–directed activities. We encourage children of all backgrounds and abilities to become part of our center.


It is our mission to create a consistently safe, loving, and nurturing environment in which children can learn and develop emotionally, socially, physically and academically.


We believe in the importance of lesson plans and domain based activities that are reflective of the child’s interest and skills as well as their cultural background and language.


We provide a loving, nurturing environment for children 6wks through 5 as well a MSDE approved Nursery and Non-Public Pre-Kindergarten program for ages 2-5.
