We are so excited to tell you about the Appleseed Preschool and Nursery. We understand that looking for a preschool program for your child can be a challenging process, as it is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your child.
As a ministry of Church of all Nations, we promise to provide a high quality, early childhood program with a safe and nurturing Christian environment while promoting the spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of each of our little ones. This foundational approach promotes positive self-esteem while developing respect for God and one another.

APPLESEED GRADUATION 2012
The Appleseed Pre School held their end of the year graduation Thursday as 22 children said goodbye to Pre School and hello to kindergarten.
Congratulations to our preschool director, Kathy Wininger, for being elected to be the Christian voice at the Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County board of directors!
Kathy has earned this position due to her hard work, kind heart, and the gift she has of sharing the love of Christ. Let us all keep Kathy in our prayers so that the Lord may continue to bless the works of her hands, and that He may give her the guidance and wisdom she will need to continue to do the work of Jesus Christ.
On behalf of Church of All Nations Senior Pastor Mark D. Boykin and staff we wish to add our congratulations on a job well done and for continued success in all future activities with the Appleseed Pre School.
The Appleseed believes in providing educational experiences that will enrich the life of the whole child. A wonderful preschool experience should instill your child with a positive self image and the basic Christian principles to be a successful adult. We want to continue what you have begun, reinforce and expand on what you teach, support your choices and be partners with you in enriching your child."

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the Early Childhood Wellness Program and myself to you. My name is Michele Goldberg, BSN, RN and I am employed as a Pediatric Nurse Specialist by Parent Child Center. We now provide many valuable services to The Appleseed Preschool and your children.

The nursing component provides annual Health Screening Assessments for children ages 3 ½ - 5 including Vision, Hearing, Dental, Height & Weight, and BMI. We also monitor immunization and physical forms annually, and provide 5 areas of education for staff and preschoolers ages 3-5 including Dental, Nutrition, Safety, Hygiene, and Exercise.
In addition, I am available to the Center Staff and parents for any medical questions/concerns and will periodically observe and assess the classrooms for health and safety issues and illnesses. If needed, recommendations may be suggested to continue to maintain and enhance the health of the center as a whole.
