Early Childhood Development and Our Daycare Philosophy
From caring for babies to kindergarten readiness, Apple Tree Orchard Preschool & Childcare childhood education facility changes the landscape of early childhood development for Papillion, La Vista, Omaha, Bellevue, and the surrounding area. Our structured and caring environment provides children with the tools they need to prepare for their formal education. Every day they spend in our daycare or preschool programs allows them to explore the world around them through our broad variety of lessons and fun programs.
We believe that children build knowledge and self-confidence by having the opportunity to learn new skills and having those newfound abilities appreciated by people they know and trust. In order to help your child have the best possible experience, we not only offer structured lessons about what they will need to be successful and happy when beginning the school years, but the chance to be creative, playful, social, and imaginative.
Parents & Creating the Best Possible Environment
Apple Tree Orchard Preschool & Childcare encourages parents to engage in the development of their children because parents are the most important part of a child's growth and education. Part of the success of our preschool and childcare programs is the involvement of the parents and family. The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) reviewed published information on parenting and discovered effective parenting best practices for early childhood development and discovered there are a few principles that transcend diverse families and settings to develop healthy, happy children. Some of those healthy habits for parents to positively influence their child’s development are:
- Using appropriate discipline when necessary without harshness
- Having household rules and routines for the child to follow
- Always responding in a predictable way to the child
- Showing warmth and sensitivity in all situations
- Sharing books with the child and holding conversations with them
