AppleTree and Gilden Woods Early Care and Preschool, we provide a variety of enrichment programs to give your child a well-rounded developmentally-appropriate environment to grow, learn, and thrive. The following programs enrich each child’s experience and are included in the weekly tuition rate.
Our Enrichment Programs
Fun ‘N’ Fit Movement Education
Fun ‘N’ Fit is our proprietary fitness curriculum for children 12 months – 4 years old. Written with the individual age groups in mind, each activity is targeted at specific milestones while engaging children. Fun ‘N’ Fit is used in our gym when there is inclement weather that keeps children from utilizing our separate age-specific, state-of-the-art playgrounds.
Our locations partner with a mobile gymnastics and fitness program that utilizes our spacious activity rooms to offer a quality fitness and nutrition program. Children individually build self-confidence and are taught healthy habits, including healthy eating, enough rest, and plenty of exercise.
Tech Time with Terance
Tech Time with Terance features developmentally-appropriate lessons that are enjoyed by 4 and 5 year olds once a week. Math & phonics skills are reinforced with typing games while children learn computer readiness and digital citizenship. This valuable program introduces important technology skills that are essential for future school success.
Adabelle’s Spanish Club
Adabelle’s Spanish Club is a Spanish program integrated into our classroom circle time that introduces the language to 3 and 4 year old children twice a week. Research has shown that children are more capable of learning two different languages simultaneously.
A fun and interactive music program makes regular visits to our schools. We explore musical instruments, sing, dance, and learn about rhythm and sound. When children are actively participating, musical experiences create a sensory rich environment where connections can be made and higher cognitive thinking and reasoning are promoted.
