Encouraging Early Childhood Education Programs
At Apple Tree Orchard Preschool and Daycare, we strive to create an environment of fun and knowledge-building activities to form our early childhood education program. Since 2000, Apple Tree has been a leading family-owned early childhood education center in Papillion and the greater Omaha community.
Learning through Fun
With our early childhood education program, we seek to provide children in our care with an atmosphere that encourages them to build important skills while having fun at the same time. We have a variety of classes in our preschool curriculum, including music, computer, Kung Fu, dance, Spanish, soccer, and art classes. At Apple Tree, we are all about balancing education with fun and encouraging in young children a love of learning.
Learning Activities for Children
Combining learning and fun is the goal of our Pre-K and early education programs. We strive to give each child the knowledge they need to prepare for Pre-K and the world ahead. Our specially planned activities for your child ensure they are prepared for the next step in their education.
The opportunity for social interaction in early childhood education and development happens during play. Children learn the appropriate social skills, establish a sense of “self,” and learn what is expected of them from others. Social interaction includes sharing, cooperation, respecting others and others property, communication, cognitive skills, and motor skills. Children who learn appropriate social skills at an early age often develop higher self-esteem. The interaction of nondisabled and disabled children is also crucial during early childhood development. Allowing integration in preschool and Pre-K builds friendships which form positive and accepting attitudes between all parties.
Preparation for kindergarten is crucial in the development of your child. Providing them early childhood education and skills required for kindergarten will help and encourage further learning while making the transition from Pre-K to kindergarten easier for your child. Academic courses such as math, reading, science are the main focus areas of our program. Creative expression through art and music, health and wellness are encouraged through organized play and games. Children will learn to sit at a desk and focus on the task at hand, standing in a line, working in groups and individually. Our Omaha and Papillion area preschool prepares children for a bright and productive future.
