Our Philosophy

Colorful Apples Learning Center, LLC has a philosophy that each child is unique and learns through a variety of hands on experiences. We strongly believe in creativity, imagination, and activities that allow growth and expression of each young ones individuality. We encourage children to be creative, personable and work well with others as well as individually. We ask that parents play an active role in assisting children in self- help skills such as dressing, feeding and various daily activities to aid in the child’s independence. Our staff acts as role models and nurtures your child by contributing their own personalities and experiences to the center as a whole. We believe all children deserve one on one attention, nurturing and love. We strive to make it easier on parents by providing them with the knowledge that there children are in good hands. We take pride in providing a safe environment that allows children to explore and grow with hands-on learning experiences that foster age appropriate development.
