Optional Afternoon Program
Sandwich Club is our afternoon program, which is optional, and operates daily from 12:00-4:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and 12:00-2:30 p.m. on Wednesday. To accommodate their schedules, each session families may choose any number of afternoons of the week.
Our regular morning teachers staff the Sandwich Club program and occasionally student teachers and interns from colleges in the area join the afternoon program.
Sandwich Club provides a relaxing, fun-filled environment where children are divided into mixed-aged groups and interact with children from different classes. Children staying for Sandwich Club bring a lunch to enjoy, have a brief rest period, then participate in activities that include walks, projects, games, arts and crafts, and reading. We also offer “Specials” during Sandwich Club, which are classes that are run by our teachers who specialize in different activities. Classes include Yoga, Spanish, Creative Movement and Music.
There is not a day that goes by when we don’t arrive at Apple Orchard and appreciate this gift we have been able to provide our children. Apple Orchard is truly a magical place, with amazing teachers and team who care so much about our children. Without the scholarship program, our family would not have this opportunity to introduce our children to education in such a special way. We are forever grateful.
Receiving a scholarship for The Apple Orchard School has made it possible for my child to be a part of such a wondrous school. A school that does not feel like school, but feels like home. As a parent that has made a world of an impact on our family. When we count our blessings, we count Apple Orchard twice.
“I am thrilled that we have been able to find a preschool for our daughter that elevates play and concrete activities over academic concerns. You don’t pretend to do things, but you really do them. I love it that the kids pick vegetables, collect eggs, and cook snacks together. I think it’s nothing short of fabulous that the children got to watch ducks raised from eggs and set free on the pond.”
