Team Teaching & Low Ratios = The Best Learning Experience

I have devoted my life to the field of Early Childhood because I believe it builds a foundation for success in life.” – Tammie L. Williams

Hear What Parents Have To Say..

Apple Creek has been amazing for our daughter; she has learned so much! The entire staff is top notch, from the owner, directors and the teachers! They are all very warm and welcoming. You can definitely tell that they love their job and our kids!

I can’t recommend this place enough. My daughter has been here for two years now and the amount she has learned is amazing. The communication between parent and school/teacher is top notch and I always feel like I know what is going on both socially and academically with my child. But the best part is just how much my daughter loves it here. She asks to go every single day. She seems to have a blast learning and making friends and gets even gets upset when it’s the weekend and she can’t go to school!

We have completed one year at Apple Creek and I can say with experience for myself and my son that this facility is amazing! The teachers are wonderful; they take the time to get to know each child and their individual needs. The student/teacher ratio along with the security is exactly what I was looking for. They are very thorough with following parent’s guidelines when it comes to each child and take pride in cleanliness! Apple Creek loves for the parents to be involved as much as you’d like to be, which is why I love they allow you to volunteer as much as you want in your child’s class. If you’re hesitant, don’t be, you will not be disappointed with Apple Creek. Wonderful school!
