Our Goals for the next 3 years are

- To achieve high standards of safety and well being of children.
The two unique experiences we offer children at Appleton Schools are a chance to:
- Be cared for by someone who is not a family member and
- Be with a stable group of children to build relationships with over time.
It is useful for children to have some experience in both of these circumstances before they reach school, particularly now when lower primary schools are becoming more structured and academic. Having the experience of being cared for by an adult outside the family gives children a chance to begin to learn that the world is a safe and nurturing place.
They learn that they can get their needs met and desires known to someone else besides a parent. If children have a chance to learn this before school, they will have entered school with the confidence that their teacher will be a resource to them. They can survive without their parent or guardian. Equally important, is building relationships with a stable group of children over time which helps children learn how to communicate, solve problems, negotiate and work together.
