About Apple Tree Children’s Center Grand in West Des Moines
Apple Tree Children’s Center Grand provides a family focused learning environment for children ages 6 weeks through 5 years old. Our center is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) as being a high quality early education program that utilizes recognized industry best practices. We employ our custom Creative Curriculum as a framework for engaging, weekly lesson plans that are tailored to be developmentally appropriate for each individual child.
As a NAEYC accredited child care center we strive to provide loving, safe, and consistent care to our kids. In each classroom there is a Lead Teacher who has a collegiate certification or degree in Child Development, Early Childhood Education, or Elementary Education. The Lead Teacher creates weekly lesson plans full of educational activities that support cognitive, physical, socio-emotional, and language development. In addition, there are teachers in each classroom who work one-on-one with the children they are paired with for the year. Parents know exactly who is watching for important developmental milestones, feeding, diapering, toilet training, and guiding the learning of their children.

What Makes Us Unique
At Apple Tree Children’s Center Grand, we understand how important parent-teacher communication is to successful early childhood education, so we make sure to connect with parents in person each day and also keep them digitally informed with weekly lesson plans sent directly to their email inboxes so that they can continue learning as a family about the same subjects at home. Learning doesn’t stop when the school bell rings! We also offer formal parent-teacher conferences twice per year so our parents can join with us in setting goals for their children.
