Providing a safe and loving environment since 1987
AppleTree offers a quality learning environment based on Montessori Education in Mission Viejo. We accept ages 18 months through Kindergarten in our five classrooms. Each age group cultivates the potential of the child in a nurturing, happy, and creative environment.
All of our primary teachers are Montessori qualified with a passion to lead children through their cognitive development.
Children work and play in an environment that includes time for silence and reflection, cultivating awe and wonder, respecting nature, caring for the earth, understanding and accepting of others and fostering virtues such as love, peacefulness, kindness, and compassion.
Our Montessori environment encourages the children to explore. In their classrooms they discover a world of peace, beauty, consistency, and learning. We work with parents in partnership to ensure that all the children blossom developmentally. The essential cornerstones of our program include:
Daily sharing of events
Smooth and happy transition times
Challenging & rewarding learning materials & practices
Respect for each individual child and family
