About Appletree II
Appletree began in 1979 when my parents, Peter and Wihelmina Klaassen, opened a preschool and kindergarten with childcare on Blake Lane in Fairfax, VA. Shortly after its inception, the school, as well as it's waiting list, began to grow. Heeding the request of many parents, we decided to expand, and in 1985 Appletree II was born. In 2001, we expanded again- a "West Wing" was added, providing us with additional classrooms, a delightful library/computer lab, and much anticipated music room.
Appletree II is conveniently located near the Vienna Metro at the intersection of Nutley St. and Tapawingo Rd. in Vienna, VA. Our address is
712 Tapawingo Rd. SW, Vienna, VA 22180
Appletree's objective is to help children grow and develop mentally, socially, and spiritually in a Christian environment. In an atmosphere of love and acceptance, children learn to play and cooperate with others.
Appletree's curriculum aims to develop skills in the language arts, arithmetic, social studies, science, physical education, art, drama, and music. The school nurtures each child's self-image by stressing that God loves him or her, and the each person is unique.
