High quality family-owned child care
Little Apples Day Care & Learning Center is a family-owned and operated child care center since 1993. Located in Hooksett since 1996, Little Apples offers a convenient location and an at-home family feel. Our program strives to enhance positive self worth within the child, and our staff accomplishes this through the use of developmentally appropriate environments and materials and a play-based curriculum. Children are cared for in a loving and nurturing manner, fostering their growth from within. Young children who attend Little Apples Day get the tools and support they need for their healthy development. All activities are carefully designed to adequately nurture the emotional, intellectual, and physical growth of our children. Through stimulating activities and hands-on learning opportunities, children are free to develop into bright young minds.
Our Educational Programs
Quality care for children 6 weeks through Pre-K
6 weeks to 1 year
Our Littlest Apples infant program cares for children with a 1:4 ratio from 6 weeks to 12 months old. Children in this program enjoy personalized schedules based on their needs for feeding and sleeping. Our teachers are trained in early growth and development to ensure each child is receiving the ultimate care and love each and every day.
12 to 23 months
Our Young Toddler program allows our toddlers to continue to build upon their developmental goals while receiving loving care. Children typically move into this program when they turn a year old and are moving around more independently.
This program maintains a 1:5 ratio at all times. The children enjoy hands on activities and exploratory play. They begin to follow more of a toddler schedule, but the teaching staff is able to follow the children's lead for daily routines and needs.
Movers & Groovers
Two year olds
Children enrolled in this program enjoy a circle time, a daily story and art project, music and movement, and lots of play! The teachers follow a flexible schedule and predictable routines in this room to accommodate the different ages and individual needs of each child. We understand that each child is unique and work alongside the parents to ensure the child is receiving the proper guidance and care they need to continue developing into a healthy and happy toddler.
Three year olds
Our Preschool friends work on their social skills daily. They learn to use manners and kind words with the guidance of the teachers. Students participate in more cooperative play in this classroom but are encouraged to play independently as well. They are able to explore different centers within the classroom at various times throughout the day. The Preschool children continue to build upon their mathematical thinking, their curiosity, their social interactions, and much more!
Four and five year olds
Our Pre-Kindergarten program designed to promote readiness for the public schools. Children in this program are learning new things each day and building upon their skills. The teacher in this program provides the students with multiple academic, social, and artistic projects and challenges each day. Children participate in a full curriculum based on themes, academic and developmental goals, and individualized goals based on the teacher’s observations and assessments. The curriculum includes Letter of the Week, Number of the Week, name recognition, early literacy and numeracy, music and movement, social play, and so much more.
