Here at AppleGate Academy & Preschool of the Arts, we understand that children are great explorers and deep thinkers. We work hard to cultivate stable, nurturing relationships, as well as a rich kid friendly stable environment so that each child has the opportunity to explore in a space especially for them!

We have experienced and degreed teachers, well equipment classrooms, and a passion for teaching.

AppleGate Academy & Preschool of the Arts was established in 1996 and has an enrollment of 125 children at our Main Campus in Stockbridge, and 203 children at our South Campus location in Jonesboro.  Our exceptional group of handpicked degreed and credentialed teachers guides and facilitates the learning process by promoting readiness skills and developing an ongoing individual assessment for each child that addresses physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.

Our programs are structured in its approach. Each child can move freely to exploratory centers where children experience hands on math skills, pre-reading and pre-writing activities, discovery science, social science skills, social and play skills, art and music, computers, and life skills. AppleGate’s teachers provide the personal individual attention and the developmentally appropriate pacing which allows each child to grow in a natural progression.

Owners are on site everyday for quick and courteous responses to all your requests.
