• Welcome To The Blue Apple Learning Center

    It is well known that working with children in the earliest stages of learning and development will help prepare them for later success in school and life. With that in mind, Blue Apple ECLC was created to provide families with an educational environment that validates authentic experiential learning, or simply, play, the backbone of our programs. Being an intentional play-based center, Blue Apple offers children and their families a developmentally appropriate curriculum to nurture the cognitive, emotional, social and physical growth of each child in our care.

    Our physical facility, with its large windows and sun-drenched classrooms, indoor gym, and outdoor learning area, helps to sustain the vital needs of children for natural light, space, movement, and creativity. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows each child to be seen individually as well as in group settings. This essential close look at each child’s strengths and needs becomes a foundation to assure a high quality educational experience.

    ***NEW*** Summer Camp registration is now open. You may bring your child for one day or sign up for the week(s) that work for you. Learn more on our classes page.

  • We believe that children are active thinkers and have the ability to construct their own knowledge through discovery.

    Our mission is to provide your children with excellence in their early childhood education through Developmentally Appropriate Practices (DAP). Our beliefs stand strong in the importance of helping children fully develop and exceeding their intellectual and social skills, but further, to acquire a sustainable, life-long love of learning.
