Little Apples is locally owned and operated by the Szelog family since 1993. Located in Hooksett since 1996, Little Apples Day Care & Learning Center strives to enhance positive self worth within the child. Our staff accomplishes this through the use of developmentally appropriate environments and materials. Children are cared for in a loving and nurturing manner, fostering their growth from within.
Little Apples is licensed (CCCB-04923) to care for children starting at 6 weeks old. We are open Monday through Friday year round, from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM.
At Little Apples, we believe children are unique individuals and are treated as such. Each child is guided through daily learning activities and encouraged to master learning goals independently. Our staff utilizes the NH Early Learning Standards to create meaningful and purposeful curriculum for each of our programs.
Little Apples staff members are both caregivers and educators. The role of an early childhood educator is to encourage and guide children towards making positive life choices. We believe parental involvement is a vital part of early childhood education and parents are encouraged to take part in as many activities as possible. We have an open door policy and parents are encouraged to drop by for a visit!
We are a Licensed Plus center through the State of NH.
