Extended Care Opportunities
At Apple Tree Learning Center, we believe that summer time is a time for fun and learning! The two can go hand in hand, especially with our innovative curriculum that we create for your child! Our focus is on FUN with the opportunity to explore and take on new adventures each day. This year we are going to explore, dream, laugh, and have a whirlwind of fun as we enjoy Summer Camp 2016! We have a dynamic new themes each week and include all kinds of creative activities like field trips, arts and crafts, cooking projects, music, athletics, and much more.

TECHNOKids Computer Curriculum for 1st-5th Grades
TECHNOKids uses a Project Based Learning instructional approach. Project-based learning poses challenging questions or presents real-world problems that are personally meaningful to students. It has them investigate these issues and propose viable solutions. Students can take personal pride in their achievements while preparing themselves for a bright and successful future! The students have fun with theme-based projects and motivating software that will introduce them to Microsoft Applications:
- MS Word
- MS Excel
- MS PowerPoint
- MS Publisher
- MS Access
Students become artists, authors, cops, pirates, producers, entrepreneurs and more as they use these applications to complete educational and fun projects. The teacher provides the computers, the kids provide the smarts!
