Inspiring and Engaging Young Learners
Children aged 3–4 years have a natural curiosity for the world around them. They learn best by doing things themselves, so our friendly staff let’s them take the reigns—in a fun and safe way! With activities like puppet play, gardening, and storytelling, kids foster healthy cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development. Our hands-on curriculum preps your child for whatever adventure awaits!
A Quality Preschool Education Supports a Lifetime of Learning
Learning experiences during this time in a child’s life are what pave the way for behavior well into the future. Studies show that a whopping 90% of a child’s brain is developed by age 5. This means that you can expect your little one to repeat and imitate your words and actions, so choose carefully! Our preschool program primes your child in ways that benefit his or her life forever. These benefits include higher test scores and a reduced chance of delinquency in both their childhood and adulthood.
Cognitive: Healthy children are born with 100 billion brain cells and are capable of making up to 20,000 connections. If these connections aren’t nurtured, they unfortunately die and are never regenerated. Apple Tree stimulates brain cells with activities like guessing games, speech drills, and storytelling.
Socio-Emotional: By this age, your child has developed a sense of self and has also formed relationships with parents, caregivers, and peers. By continuing to teach sharing, communication, and empathy, we provide your child with the social skills he or she needs for years to come.
Physical: Your young one is bursting with energy while riding tricycles, playing with clay, and jumping like a kangaroo! Our age-appropriate toys and activities coach your child to stay healthy and active in a fun and safe environment.
Preschool Activities Include
Cognitive: Exercises in math, science, social studies, and literacy.
Socio-Emotional: Receptive communication, group movement exercises, and dramatic play.
Physical: Fitness exercises to encourage motor skills.
Bilingual Lessons: According to studies, the best time to learn a new language is during the first 3 to 4 years of life. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, so it makes sense to expose your young one to it in a fun and engaging way. Our professionals introduce the language with songs, games, and stories to help remember greetings, vocabulary, weather, food, and clothing.
Confident Decision Making: By offering various activities and settings options, your child learns to make informed decisions with confidence.
Conversation: As mentioned previously, brain-cell connections are vital in maintaining healthy brain activity. Our friendly caregivers promote conversation in the classroom in order to assist your child in becoming a stronger learner for the rest of his or her life.
Love of Literacy: At Apple Tree Children’s Centers, we love books! Story time is an integral part of our preschool daycare because reading aloud to children sparks their imaginations, builds a strong vocabulary, and cultivates a lifelong love of reading.
Growing Up Fit: Healthy lifestyles start early at our center. We safely encourage leaping, jumping, hopping, and running under the care of our experienced supervisors. Classroom cooking projects also shed light on how eating healthy can be fun!
Technology Time: In the ever-changing world of technology, it’s important to give kids a jump-start on how modern life functions. Our up-to-date technology is used to teach subjects like math, literacy, language, and science. Some of our schools even utilize Smart Board, an interactive white board purposed to build cognitive and fine motor skills.
