My name is Marcy Cowan. I am the owner and Director of The Apple Tree Preschool. I started The Apple Tree Preschool in 2011 and we currently have 3 locations; Brooklin, Ajax & Whitby. I started The Apple Tree Preschool because I saw the need for quality care for our children in Durham Region and wanted to help fulfill that need for local families. I am a mother of 3 and understand the need for flexible, compassionate, quality care and I strive to be able to offer that to each and every family that chooses to join us.
Our preschool works hard to stay posted on the most up-to-date teaching methods. We are constantly changing our curriculum but maintain basic methods that we believe nurture children’s learning.
Our methods are exemplified in the activities we do with the kids in the fields of Art, Science, Movement, Music, Outdoor Play Sense related activities (smell, sight, feel) and practical life skills.
Each day, you will receive an evaluation of your child so that you are kept updated on how and what they did that day, how much they ate, and what their mood was like. Also, often your child will be taking with them a “home version” of a story or song we talked about during the day, so that you can repeat it with them at home.
My kids love going to Appletree Preschool, and I love that I have found such an amazing, welcoming and fun environment for them to be in. The staff are incredible and have made my kids feel loved, important, and comfortable from day one. They are continuously doing interesting and age appropriate curriculum to keep the kids engaged and excited about learning. I am so happy to have found such a great childcare centre for my kids.
