OUR MISSION 
As educators, we find ways to support natural learning and behavior, and we provide a variety of opportunities in which this may happen.  Appletree School is located in close proximity to the ocean, the beach, two state parks and we are pleased to be in our immediate setting with woods, meadows, gardens, and a large frog pond. 
We encourage every child to function fully at her or his own pace. Our full attention is given to helping children develop deep communication skills, build self-esteem, and take pleasure in their learning in our outdoor driven, play-based environment. Our program focuses on cultivating social-emotional growth and discovery through exploration, the arts, creative thought, movement and best of all, a lot of fun together!
Appletree School was founded in 1989 by Pamela Mullin.

We offer a welcoming atmosphere for children, in a setting that reflects to Pamela's commitment to family, friends and the love of the outdoors. Appletree School is the fulfillment of a lifelong aspiration to teach with others, and to create a special nature-based learning environment and experience for children.
Appletree offers our unique nature based preschool education for children aged 3-6. Children must be 3 years old by September 1, to be enrolled for that school year.
