About Us

Quality care & education

With our proven education philosophy and 30 years in the Hooksett community, Little Apples understands and appreciates that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to learn, develop, grow and thrive.


When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave Little Apples Day Care & Learning Center, they’re prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

Our Roots

High quality family-owned child care

Little Apples Day Care & Learning Center is a family-owned and operated childcare center. The Szelogs opened their first early education center in Bedford, NH in 1993. Located in Hooksett since 1996, Little Apples offers a convenient location off route 93 for commuting between Concord or points north and Manchester or points south.

Our program strives to enhance positive self-worth within the child. Our staff accomplishes this through the use of developmentally appropriate and play-based environments, materials, and curriculum. Children are cared for in a loving and nurturing manner, fostering their growth from within.
