Happy Apple is a private preschool which strives to offer the community a program which encompasses the highest standards in early childhood education within a Christian environment of love and support. We have been a ministry of St. Marys United Methodist church since 1981.
At Happy Apple Academy, we believe that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring and discovery. Preschool children are creative and receptive; our staff strives to encourage these qualities in the children who attend. We work to provide an atmosphere that encourages the child’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth and development.
Our curriculum is developmentally appropriate and carefully crafted for each age group. From the youngest age our students are immersed in activities to encourage social, language, physical and intellectual development. By the time our students are in their prekindergarten year, they are involved in all areas of the curriculum including a highly effective phonics program. We delight in teaching Bible lessons and Christian values. We are proud of the fact that the children are having such fun they do not realize the activities are designed for learning.
Our amazing staff is the heart of our school and is comprised of a team of skilled, fun, and caring people knowledgeable in the field of Early Childhood Education. We love coming to work each day and are committed to establishing meaningful relationships with children, parents and each other. We continually strive to improve our school and seek to increase our knowledge and abilities through continuing education and shared experiences.
