Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Co-op’s philosophy is a simple and happy one: children, parents, and teacher go to school together – each learning from the other.
Apple House has a developmentally appropriate curriculum, where the children enjoy hands on learning experiences with a wide variety of materials and equipment available to them. The program focuses on creative play, guided reading and guided self-discovery."
Excerpted from the preschool's website
