play. learn. develop. grow

Appletots Learning Center focuses on early childhood education programs.  We use a play-based approach to learning in all of our educational programs.  All of our classes emphasize on the following developmental standards:

  • Health and Physical Development
  • Social and Emotional Development
  • Language and Communication Development
  • Basic Life Skills
  • Mathematics, Science and Problem-Solving Skills

We offer parent/child and independent classes for children 2 to 5 years old.  All classes are held either downtown at City Center or at the Scheig Center in Appleton Memorial Park.  Each class has a different emphasis so there is something for everyone.  Our experienced teachers are excited to bring these fun, educational experiences to your little ones.  

Preschool Tots Extra is a 4-week program offered during the summer to keep your child engaged and learning so they are ready for the fall.  We will build upon our learning of numbers, letters, name recognition, shapes, and colors.  We will also explore art and music while developing our social skills and manners.
