Apple Tree Children’s Centers

Apple Tree Children’s Centers offer unparalleled preschool education and child care for our valued parents and families. At Apple Tree, taking care of children is what we love to do. Our trained professionals welcome each child into the Apple Tree family and nurture, care, and guide them through these important early years. Our daycare programs are available for children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old, and each age group receives specialized curriculum based on the needs of that developmental stage.

Our child care programs include: Infant Care, Toddler Daycare, Early Learners, Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten, Before and After Care, and Summer Camp. In each class, kids are having the most fun while also priming the brain for later academic skills, making positive social connections, and establishing healthy emotional regulation. We take all elements of growth into account for a holistic, empowering early childhood experience.

Apple Tree Children’s Centers has eight preschool locations throughout Iowa:
