Both of my children attend apple tree and have been there for over 3 years and I am very happy with the care that they receive. It is so easy dropping them off in the morning, they go right into their classrooms and the teachers get out their breakfast and I am on my way. I have never had any negative experiences with this center, everyone is very helpful. I even need to change my children's schedule from full time to part time for a while and the Director was helpful throughout the entire process. I have recommended Apple Tree to family and friends who also attend the center. Check them out for yourself I am glad I did!

I still have my children at Apple Tree and I am very happy with the care that they receive. I have never had a problem with management or the teachers everyone is always so helpful if and when I ever have any questions. I also have friends whose children attend and we are happy parents. I guess everyone has different experiences. I would recommend checking them out for yourself.

I had my children in Apple Tree for a very short time. The school is nice, but the Owner is a very rude person. I couldn't deal with it.

Happy parents! We have been with the center for a little over a year and are very happy with the care that our children receive. The teachers are great and I like how the owner is on site. Can not wait to enroll our older son for camp.

I'm actually online looking for daycares and I find it funny how there has only been one comment for this school ever, and the day it was posted a positive one followed right away. Hmm owner writing..? Friend?? Red flag to me.

I have had nothing but great experiences at Apple Tree. I have 3 children who still attend the center and have been enrolled since 2000. They all started in the infant room, moved to toddler rooms and even preschool rooms. This center truly cares for the children and treats you like family. From the Director to the teachers they are not just helpful but they ALL have been there forever. Take it from a parent that has been there for years. I also have attended holiday and school functions and what a well organized and run center. You can tell the teachers and the Director really have a love for what they are doing.

My son who attended as an infant and throughout all of their programs must have loved his school experience so much because he has been working there since high school and now attends college and Debbie the Director is great with his ever changing schedule semester after semester. My mother also works in the infant room for years and is very happy also.

I had two children in Apple Tree over the past few years, and while the teachers are great (Miss. Marcia and Miss. Jackie/preschool teachers) the ONLY teachers that have been there for years. (So keep that in mind when reading "current teacher reviews, that state they have worked for the center for years", the director writes her own reviews).

The director Debbie is a Nightmare. She does not care about the children, the families, or the staff. She cares about her money, and that's it. When you put your 30 day notice in writing that fake smile turns nasty real quick. You may not ask her any questions after the notice is in. I made that mistake! I simply asked why I was being charged for the week after the 30 day notice? She started yelling at me in front of the children, and told me if I say anything she will kick my son out today! Needless to say asking questions in her book deems you a "Behavioral problem" which on her grounds means she can keep your deposit. Clearly she needs it more than I do.

I really wish the center was owned by someone else, because it could be such a great school. The teachers put up with so much, I give them so much credit. They are great people, and don't deserve that kind or work environment. It is sad, there are new faces every few weeks.

I have never been verbally harassed before by someone who is in childcare, especially someone who I trusted to be around my child. She had the nerve to tell me, a paying customer.. that "I am a big girl, and my problems are not hers". Far from understanding or caring.

Please do your research before you get yourself locked in her "rules". Trust me that smile stops at the tour.
