My wife and I toured many centers and I have to say that we were both very impressed with Apple Tree, from the teachers to the clean classrooms, this is the type of place that we were looking for. After being with the center for over a year we can honestly say that we still feel the same way. We are treated like family and when ever we have questions the Director and the teachers are very helpful. It is no surprise that we will be placing our second child with them. I have recommended them to others and will continue to do so. We are a very happy parents!
You get what you pay for. We liked Apple Tree on the tour and found the price affordable and the staff pleasant. However, Debbie the director has been unbearable to deal with from the moment we became paying customers. Prior to receiving our check to enroll, she was kind and helpful with answering questions we had but once we committed and our son attended, she showed her true colors as heartless and unwilling to answer questions if it did not benefit her. We are truly disappointed with the lack of professionalism and will be switching our son out in the next few weeks.
We have nothing but glowing things to say about the Wonder Years Learning Center and are so glad to found them! During the walk through, we were greeted by the owner Laura, who was warm, friendly and professional. The building was quiet and organized, and had such a warm and welcoming feeling to it. Laura walked us around the building, and every single child was happy and doing what they were supposed to be doing. When we were done the tour, we signed all the paperwork and cancelled the other tours we had set up. Her teacher Mari is fabulous - I feel so comfortable leaving my daughter knowing she is in good hands. My daughter is always happy to see Mari and gives her big smiles - you can't fake that kind of happiness at 6 months old. She really gets to know her babies and gives them the attention they require at such a young age. Her classroom is calm, happy, and organized - which is quite an accomplishment with 4 newborns! Every day when I pick up my daughter, she is happy. changed, fed and ready for our long ride home. Having someone you trust caring for your newborn all day makes going back to work so much easier. I love the peace of mind knowing she is in good hands (and probably being cuddled with!)We call this place "camp" because it is so much more than a daycare! A big THANK YOU! to Mari, Laura, Jen, and the rest of the teachers and staff at Wonder Years Learning Center!
Both of my sons attend this center and I am very happy with the care that they receive. We are welcomed every morning by the director and the teachers. The security is great and the center is very clean. I was extremely impressed with the indoor play area and the outdoor areas are very large as well. The Pre-K program really did prepare my child for Kindergarten. From one happy parent, I highly recommend Apple Tree.
This center is very clean, well organized and the teachers and the Director Debbie are great. I have never had a problem with my child's care. I work right around the corner from the center and I pop in from time to time and my child with all the other children are very busy. My child started as an infant and is now a preschooler we have been with the center for almost 3 years. Loving and caring staff and very helpful when ever I needed to ask a question. I am also a big fan of their sick child policy. Most centers leave the sick kids in the rooms and do not call the parents, not this center they care about the well being of all the children in their care. I highly recommend Apple Tree!
I have had nothing put a good experience with this center. Clean and very well organized. I was very happy with the care that my children received. As for the negative comment- I am confused, I was never rushed and the Director and the teachers were very accommodating. I did however see many parents try to leave their children unattended in the center and the Director politely asked them to bring them with them for safety and security reasons, which I strongly agree with. Check the center out for yourself, I highly recommend it.
My son used to go to Apple Tree from infant to toddler and I have mixed feelings about this daycare. The school is very well designed, has ample rooms for each age group and the outside areas are great. All the teachers were also nice. My son got bit around 5 times the whole time he was there which was obviously very upsetting to me but understood sometimes it's difficult to prevent. Parking is very limited and you are asked to drop off and pick up your kids quickly which I didn't like because I liked to talk to the teachers about how my kid did that day.I did not like how the kids got moved from class to class depending on how many kids were around so that the number of teachers was also at the bare minimum. Almost never did I pick up my kid at the same room I dropped him off in the morning. Not a big deal but not a fan either.Now the reason why I left the center is the owner/director. You will see nothing but smiles when you tour the school but I found her extremely difficult to deal with. She was rude to children, teachers and parents. Just not a good example for kids. I tried to keep my son at this school because I thought it would be hard to switch him but for the money I was paying I didn't want to have to deal with someone so disrespectful.
I love this school! My daughter was at home with her aunt and I noticed that she needed to be with other children her age for a few days a week - I wanted her to socialize more. Needless to say that she was very, very shy- we visited many schools and I have to say that we were both very over welled with all the schools that are out there. Sure everyone offers different things, but I believe that once we visited Apple Tree that was the school. Nice, organized classrooms, not to mention how warm and welcoming everyone was, it really did feel like a great place to learn and grow. I was very impressed. We have been with the center for over 6 months now and I am still a very happy parent- I am glad that we found this center and I am very glad that my daughter is happy and making new friends.
