Hear From

Happy Parents

The team at Apple Tree West has been an incredible partner in caring for our two children through their early childhood years. Both the education and care our kids received were excellent, responsive, and trustworthy – exactly what every kid needs and deserves! We are deeply thankful for Amy and her team and how they’ve loved our kids!

- The Kjesbo Family

” As a mom, we want what’s best for our kids and I can say Apple Tree is the best. I wish I would’ve started my son here from the start. The staff are incredible! They plan age-appropriate activities and even provide Montessori learning which is a method of self-directed activity. This is hands down the most safe and clean environment for my child.”

- Brittany

Apple Tree is our home away from home. We never believed a daycare center could provide the kind of love and nurturing our children need but Apple Tree continues to prove us wrong! It has given our children an environment to grow, learn, and enjoy every moment they spend there. The staff treat our children like family and go out of their way to assure their safety. We feel confident that our children are happy and secure while we are away. We just love Apple Tree and all the smiling faces we see there!

- The Reilly Family

Our programs


0 to 1 years

Infancy is one of the most important stages in a child’s life. As care providers, we are often amazed at how quickly babies in the “Apple Tree Learning Centers” program grow. At 1 year of age, babies have almost tripled their birth weight. They learn how to control their head; arms, hands, legs, and feet. Eventually, they begin to crawl and occasionally even take their first steps.


1 to 2 years

Toddlers are very active. At Apple Tree, we understand that they seem to possess boundless energy. They have a strong sense of curiosity prompting them to thoroughly explore their environment. Our toddlers participate in a variety of learning experiences while receiving positive, nurturing guidance from their caregivers.


2 to 3 years

Apple Tree understands that 2 and 3-year-olds want to explore their environment. They want to touch things, mimic their peers and teachers, and they want to be independent.


3 to 5 years

Apple Tree educators understand that it is an exciting and challenging time for children. At this age they are naturally inquisitive, take pride in doing things independently, and love to be praised for it!

School Age

5 to 7 years

During this part of growing up, Caregivers at Apple Tree assist your child as they begin to learn skills that help them become a self-sufficient person. Five-year-olds are eager to discover and learn new information. They love to plan and enjoy playing with their peers.

Summer Program

5 to 11 years

Our engaging activities and supportive environment help every kid grow and develop during the summer. We take delight in seeing how our program has a good impact on participants, producing wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
