My wife and I placed our two boys in the care of Apple Tree Learning Center. Our boys come home with smiles on their faces and bring home activities that they completed during the day. The Staff is very friendly and they have always been open to answer any question we may have. For me, Security, Consistency, and Reliability are very important and I do believe the Apple Tree Learning Center has these trait.

My two daughters (ages 3 and 4) spent a year at Apple Tree before entering pre-kindergarten, and I have nothing but positive things to say about our time there. The teachers were wonderful about giving them individual attention and care, and they have a genuine interest in making sure the children are happy and healthy. We miss them and are so grateful to everyone there for taking such good care of our girls!

My daughter has been here for 3+ years now and my son for 2+. The staff is consistent with my kids and provides a safe environment. Any concern I have taken to the director, has been acted on in a timely manner. My children love being here and have formed great relationships with their teachers. They've been great about helping potty train both of my kids. They serve healthy meals and keep the property very clean. I absolutely recommend Apple Tree Learning center.

So far so good, my daughters first week and she loves it, Coming from a daycare she spent virtually her whole life at (4 yrs) & she loves it here. This place is clean & organized and fairly priced for similar ones in the area so with the cost for the area & size being similar, the good feeling I got from the environment and the employees is what made my decision easy. My daughter comes home happy & excited to go back which makes me feel good about my decision.
