THE APPLE PROGRAM The Apple Program encourages children to explore, discover, problem-solve and build self-esteem. Classes align with the Illinois Early Learning Standards. At the same time we use our philosophy of “learning through play” to fulfill a balanced and progressive curriculum. The program features: • Individual and group activities to develop social, emotional, language and cognitive skills • Learning centers for science, math, dramatic play, language, reading, music and art • An enclosed outdoor playground and indoor gymnasium • Developmentally appropriate, non-biased activities following weekly themes • Field trips and special guests from Historic Wagner Farm and The Grove REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT INFORMATION All registration for Early Childhood programs must be done in person at Park Center.
