We have active play, quieter play and quiet/nap time daily. We emphasize social and self-help skills. Our group is varied in ages and stages so your child will experience a family type environment.


All activities are developmentally appropriate for your child and are presented in a manner that optimizes the natural learning curve of the individual child as well as the class as a whole.


Example of a typical day at Pomme d'Api

We will adhere to this schedule as closely as possible, however since we have such a variety of ages and stages there will be flexibility. Infant schedules are based on the individual needs of the child.
