Apple Tree Orchard Preschool and Childcare Daycare, Preschool, & Childcare

Apple Tree Orchard Preschool and Childcare is a full-service daycare, pre-K, and early childhood education facility in Papillion, a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Apple Tree facilitates learning and social interaction for young children up to kindergarten-age and employs a caring, professional staff dedicated to the development of your child.

At Apple Tree, we understand that it's difficult to send your little one to a preschool education program. You worry whether they will be safe, happy, and well cared for. But there are many reasons to do so.

  • One, it can be a great way to socialize your youngster, and they usually enjoy the time spent with peers. Social activity helps children learn in so many ways, and it makes the transition to primary school a lot easier for them.
  • Two, your child is in an environment designed just for youngsters. This makes it safe to put your child in a nursery school facility. Most people's homes aren't even designed just for their child, so you can rest assured that the facility itself is safe for your little one.
  • Three, in addition to academics and social skills, your child will be learning language skills that can help them communicate well for the rest of their life.
  • Four, you may need to work, and putting your child in a preschool program, whether part time or full time, should not make you feel bad. Even stay-at-home parents know that children benefit from interacting with other children and from a uunique educational environment designed just for kiddos. We have plenty of stay-at-home parents who trust us with their child's early education needs.

    Benefits of Daycare

    There is so much pressure on parents today to “do it all.” In a world where most often you need two incomes to support your family, parents can feel as if they are somehow doing their child a disservice by sending them to a daycare versus caring for them at home. However, the statistics have shown it’s quite the opposite. Even stay-at-home parents are opting to enroll their children in preschool and daycare programs. Parents are realizing that early education programs benefit children and parents. There are incredible benefits to your child’s health, well-being, and development by enrolling them in a daycare or early childhood education facility. Some of those benefits include:

    • Introducing children to a regular schedule and activities essential for intellectual growth
    • Higher academic achievement later in life
    • Interaction with peers 
    • A whole lot of fun
    • Easy adjustment to kindergarten and other formal education
    • New scenery that makes each day fun and esciting
    • Parents and caregivers can get errands and chores done during school hours so they are better able to focus on their children
    • Parents can provide a higher income, which can provide opportunities for their children
    • Children are able to enjoy a wide range of programs and activities that may not be available at home
    • Fun holidays and crafts that make the seasons come alive
    • Children build a strong immune system
    • Exposure to trusted adults other than family members

    Besides these notable benefits for the children who are going to daycare and their parents, there are also additional benefits for parents. Studies have shown that even just a few moments engaged in talks with the other parents dropping off or picking up their children from daycare increases a sense of community—reducing rates of depression and even financial hardship over the long term.
