About the Provider

Description: Apple Tree Children's Center, Ashworth is much more than just daycare. We offer infant, preschool and child care programs with a curriculum that prepares every student to thrive in the next step in their life. We provide parents peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a setting as nurturing as home. Before and after school programs also available.
As quoted by Mr. Rogers, “The first four years of life are more important in the development of a functioning human being than the first four years of college. Apple Tree Children’s Centers joins with parents to form a learning team to enable their child to grow and develop through the milestones of childhood.

Our programs are designed to gently stimulate children to reach their full potential, to approach each developmental stage with enthusiasm, persistence and joy. We strive to promote the growth of the whole child emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually which in turn will establish a lifelong love of learning.

With more than 20 years of experience and hundreds of years combined teaching experiences in the field of early care and education, Apple Tree understands what quality means in child care. Our Directors and teachers hold degrees in early care and education and continually take part in trainings to feed their love of learning and to stay ahead of the field. Our teachers are knowledgeable and understand how children grow, allowing them to anticipate developmental needs and create environments and activities that encourage emerging skills without frustration and fear of failure.
