General Information

 Apple Tree Preschool was established in 2006 and offers an age appropriate program for the creative, emotional, social, cognitive, and physical development of the preschool child.    Opportunities are provided to develop the child’s visual, auditory, and large and small muscle motor skills, and to improve communication skills by sharing experiences through formal and informal conversation/discussion.  Apple Tree Preschool seeks to stimulate creative and cognitive development through everyday exposure to a wide variety of art, play materials, and curriculum.

 Apple Tree Preschool is licensed by the State of Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services. The preschool is governed by the Apple Tree Preschool Executive Board which consists of the preschool director, three to four church members, and the minister.  The Preschool Executive Board meets 4-5 times per year to discuss preschool policies, staff issues, and preschool budget issues. 


 Two separate classes are offered; a 3 Year Old Class and a Pre-k Class.  Each class has a lead teacher and a teacher assistant who works in conjunction with each lead teacher, assisting daily in each room as needed.  School begins the first Tuesday after Labor Day and ends in May.  Class times are as follows:


        AM Classes – Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday -   9:15 AM – 11:30 PM


2019/2020 Staff Members

 Currently Apple Tree has three staff members that are paid through student tuition.  Staff members are required to sign contracts yearly, are evaluated annually, and must maintain first aid and CPR certifications.
