Such a GREAT preschool! We have loved it and our daughter does too. The loving environment is the best. They have such fun crafts and creative activities for the kids. Thanks for creating this wonderful place for my child! - Megan Wiseman
We LOVE Apple Tree Schoolhouse! Amazing atmosphere, loving environment, and happy kids that want to be there! My son loved his time there, and we're looking forward to sending my daughter there next year. She can't wait!
This is our second year at Apple Tree, and we're so glad to be back! The teachers and staff truly care about the academic, emotional, and social development of all the students. However, I agree with others that Apple Tree needs to update safety and security procedures, and I know the school director is already working diligently to do so.
Very recently, there was an unexpected incident involving one of the younger students. (Fortunately, the student remains happy, safe, and unharmed.) I appreciate and am impressed by Apple Tree's handling of the situation. Directly following the incident, Apple Tree implemented new safety precautions and notified every family of the situation. Apple Tree has been forthright in accepting responsibility for their part in this singular and regrettable accident.
I have faith Apple Tree will continue to evaluate and improve their security practices along with their curriculum. Apple Tree provides an enriching environment where children flourish. For this reason, I maintain my trust in the teachers and staff as stewards of my child's safety and learning.
We love Apple Tree Schoolhouse! My son so enjoyed his time here. The teachers and staff are fantastic, so kind, and very attentive. There was a security incident here a few days ago (see 1 star review below), but I am sure they are in the midst of making appropriate changes. Many preschools are set up similar to this one, so I personally feel that honestly, it could have happened anywhere. You could also ask about it if you’re really concerned, but I am confident they will be very vigilant. They really care about the kids, I feel like more than most places. Don’t hesitate to send your children here, we had a great experience.
I love taking my child here. Miss Sharon is the greatest and I know she cares deeply for the kiddos. It’s our second year and my little one has just loved it. They do fun activities and teach them different themes while incorporating the things they need to learn for kindergarten.
This is the second year my daughter has been going here. She learns something new each time she goes, she loves her teachers, and she loves the kids. My daughter is also learning to read. Today she came home and read each name on all of her Valentine's Day cards. I cannot express how happy that made me feel, knowing she is learning so much. I am very pleased with everything at this school. The staff is very friendly and shows so much love for each individual child. They do fun activities for each holiday and my daughter always comes home with a chirpy fun attitude after school. This is my son's first year going and he is very well cared for, loved, taught and he also comes home smarter each time and excited to go back! I am so very pleased with this school and would recommend it to anyone I know! This is a great introduction for children getting ready to start kindergarten!!
I LOVE THIS PRESCHOOL!! I am not sure where the other reviewer is coming from because I am now on the my 4th child going to Apple Tree(my first now in Jr High) and we have never had any problems. The teacher is always in the classroom, but if she has to step out there is an aid in there to watch the kids and make sure all is well(not teenagers!). As for "quiet time", it is quiet time but they only lay their head down for a few minutes. It's just kind of a way half way through to change gears. At pick up time the kids are all sitting in their seats with their backpacks on usually singing good bye songs or playing an eye spy game. The only time they are ever out in front(by the office, not actually out front of the school) is if the parents are LATE! The teachers need to start cleaning and disinfecting things. As the parents come, the child gets up, pushes in their chair and goes out with the parent. I love this preschool because they have structured learning/play times. It has helped my littles learn to switch from one activity to the next when it's time. Of course things can get a little wild. It's a preschool, with a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds, but the teachers and the aids do a fabulous job at wrangling and teaching them. They are awesome with those kiddos who scream and cry for mom. They are very patient and loving. This is our 7th preschool year here and we love love love it and couldn't recommend them enough!
