The Apple Tree Preschool Program

Our Philosophy

The philosophy behind our curriculum is that young children learn best by hands on activities. Learning is not repeating what someone else says; it requires active thinking and experimenting to find out how things work and how things in their world relate to them. The activities introduced to the children have been created to promote self-awareness, language development, auditory and visual discrimination and sensory skills. At the Apple Tree they are free to explore and learn at their own pace. The children are encouraged to make their own choices, create, use manipulative materials, and to express their own interest and opinions in both structured and unstructured formats. The Apple Tree will provide a sensitive and warm environment in which the child feels secure enough to open their mind to new and exciting things.

The Apple Tree recognizes that every child is unique. Each child has his/her own individual pattern of growth and development. The curriculum, materials and teachers will be responsive to each child's abilities and interests.

Our Goals

The most important goal of our curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try new things and to think their own thoughts. Our goal is to help children become interdependent, self confident, inquisitive learners.

The activities we plan for the children, the way we organize the environment, select toys and materials, plan the daily schedule, interact and talk with the children are all designed to accomplish the goals of our curriculum and give your child a successful start.

About us

Welcome to Mohawk Valley Trinity United Methodist Church. At Trinity we see ourselves living on the edge of a new mission frontier for the 21st century, which starts right at the door of the church and extends across the globe. We understand that in our rapidly changing world people need to connect to God in new ways that are multi-cultural and multi-sensory. Whether you’re a spiritual seeker or a committed Christ-follower, we’ll communicate in a way that’s easy for you to understand and apply to your daily life. We believe that no matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been – you matter to God. If you live in the Utica/Mohawk Valley area, or are just planning to visit, we hope you will join us for worship. There are tremendous programs and ministries for people of all ages and stages in their spiritual journey.
