Our Mission & Philosophy


At Apple Tree Learning Centers we believe that play is a child’s response to life. This belief guides our curriculum-based programs. In order to successfully teach a young child we must use a play based curriculum to encourage meaningful learning opportunities. Our caring and well-trained staff is dedicated to fostering each aspect of a child’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development, by focusing on each child’s interest and needs. The goals of all our programs are to support each child in the learning process, to help them build trust, learn social skills, develop positive self-esteem, and begin mastery of academic skills.

Our programs are developed to provide an all-encompassing educational environment in which each child can succeed. We strive to prepare a child for real life experiences and help each child grow more aware of all he/she is capable of achieving.

Our safe and warm learning environments are organized and structured to provide a wide variety of worthwhile experiences and to allow a child to pursue a multitude of self-chosen activities. A child given a variety of choices will gain a greater sense of responsibility, independence, and accomplishment. We also strive to help children gain self-regulation skills by being consistent and positive role models ourselves and by utilizing positive reinforcement and redirection opportunities.
