Our Mission

Child having fun at our child care

 The mission of AppleTree Day School of San Antonio is to provide a safe, stimulating, and caring environment for children ages six weeks to 12 years. Our focus is to provide an encouraging educational experience, promoting social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Committed to the families we serve, we strive to give parents complete peace of mind, while being seen as a shining example of what a quality childcare center should be. The ultimate vision we have for our facility is twofold, and rooted in both the present and the future. For the present, our goal is for parents to feel good about their pre school choice, and that the children are safe, engaged, educated, and smiling. And for the future, we want these children to warmly look back at their experience with us, and see it as a cherished part of their childhood. Our philosophy is simple. AppleTree Day School of San Antonio is here to offer your children the care, comfort, fun and safety they deserve. And for you, the peace of mind that comes from knowing your child is in the best of hands. Each day promises an exciting new adventure, and we make sure each child experiences the joys of a truly caring environment. We also strive to be your partner. We are completely transparent in our programs and curriculum, we continuously self-assess and look to improve, and we make communication with you a paramount part of the child care environment..

What To Look For

state of the art and age appropriate child care classrooms


Choosing your child’s child care center or first school is both an exciting and daunting prospect. Regardless of the qualities you’re looking for, it’s wise to start researching early and apply to multiple programs, because space is often limited. Here are questions to ask, and things to look for to ensure that this school will be right for your child and you. Be sure to call in advance to arrange a tour. You may want to arrange an initial visit without your child and a follow-up visit with her to observe how she functions in the program.

Before You Go

  • Ask yourself “What kind of childcare or school environment am I looking for?”Do you picture your child in a busy, active place with lots of other children, or are you looking for a small, nurturing environment with just a few kids? Are you looking for a particular educational philosophy? What kinds of specific needs does your young child have: toilet training, napping, socializing? Do you want a school located near your workplace or your home? If the preschool is private, are the fees within your budget? What kinds of needs do you have regarding your schedule?
