For more than 30 years, Apple Tree Nursery School has been dedicated to providing quality child care as a convenient and affordable service to students and employees of The University of Toledo.

In addition to providing quality care, Apple Tree recently has started raising “green” awareness for all attending children. See how these children are learning smart environmental habits at the Growing Green Open House Thursday, Sept. 24, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Apple Tree Nursery School on Main Campus.

The open house will include a full tour of the facilities, a look at some activities that demonstrate the development of “green” awareness, and some of the children’s thoughts on being “green.”

“We started our initiative by introducing the children to proper recycling techniques and gardening, and we even tried our hand at composting,” said Sherry Roush, director of Apple Tree Nursery School. “Now we have taken things one step further by gardening indoors and introducing the students to solar technology — like the solar oven our preschool group uses to make nachos and cheese.”

Apple Tree has received full accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s Academy of Childhood programs. In addition, Apple Tree was awarded three stars in Ohio’s quality rating system.
