My boys went here from a very young age. I couldn't be more happy with the care that was given. I never felt bad leaving them and they loved going!

My daughter enjoyed Apprende pre-school and went on to be a National Merit Scholar with full-ride scholarship at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Apprende offers excellent art programming and music and foreign languages are also encouraged. I forgot to add this to my earlier recommendation today.

The educators at Apprende school truly care about the students. Academics are the top priority, but in an atmosphere free of judgement or pressure. Most children test above grade level after a short time at Apprende. Instructors take time for parents as well, for a quick chat at pick up or drop off or over an email or phone call for bigger issues. My children are always happy after school, even if they were in a bad mood in the mornng!
