Our Classes

Blue Apple offers a flexible schedule to meet the needs of each child and their family. For all ages you can choose from half day or full day programs, as well as, early drop off and extended day after school hours.

Two- Year Olds

At Blue Apple Learning Center, for two year olds, our goal is to support children’s independence as a learner and thinker.

Research guides our view that the first school experience is a qualifying factor for positive views about oneself as a learner in the later years.

Through developmentally appropriate experiences, lessons are developed attuned to children’s unique patterns of development while facilitating a strong sense of connection between parents, teachers and children.

Three -Year Olds

At Blue Apple Learning Center, experiential learning is an integral part of the day for three year olds.  Using a thematic project approach, our students deepen their knowledge about the world around them as they solidify their skills in all areas of development.

In these early years, Blue Apple believes that hands on tangible experiences provide the necessary opportunities for discovery to nurture the seeds of intelligence and problem solving.

Pre-Kindergarten

A stimulating and thoughtfully integrated curriculum, the Pre- Kindergarten at Blue Apple provides educational offerings that reflect our commitment to providing meaningful learning opportunities for each student in our care.

Every aspect of our four and five year old program, is designed to attain a balanced integrated curriculum in preparation for Kindergarten and beyond.

A flexible schedule to meet the needs of each child and their family, Blue Apple offers both half day and full day programs for two’s, three’s and four year olds’.

Preschool Prep 101

Our latest program addition is PRESCHOOL PREP 101 for preparing children ages 12 – 30 months for nursery school.  Accompanied by a parent, grandparent or caregiver, young children share community experiences that set the stage for later independent play.

This once a week 75 -minute experience provides a mix of classroom time as well as full body play and movement in our fully equipped gym.
