Welcome to Apple Tree Academy III, where learning is fun!

Apple Tree Academy III preschool began serving the Palm City community in 1996, and joined the Kids Depot Preschool Academies family of schools in 2008. Today, Apple Tree Academy III is an Childhood Program and plays an integral role in the lives of children living in Palm City and the surrounding communities. 

From the large, beautiful trees that shade our Perma-Grass playground to the intimate, lovely residential setting, your family will feel the warmth of home. 

We are an APPLE accredited program and hold the Gold Seal Quality of Care, the highest quality rating issued by the Florida Department of Children and Families. 

Please stop by for a visit to our preschool. We are looking forward to meeting you and your precious little one!

Our Philosophy

To put it simply, we are passionate about your child!

We know that a love of learning is caught rather than taught. The interactions with our students foster academic support, discovery of individual gifts and respect for one another, assuring a great start in life.


Our Program

We are committed to educational goals of excellence.

Our “whole child” focus ensures each child is encouraged and nurtured to grow socially, physically, academically and spiritually. Through a warm secure environment, each child gains confidence and self-respect, forming close bonds with adults and peers.

We utilize a multi-sensory, integrated curriculum as a framework, and provide state-of-the-art classrooms and playgrounds rich in literacy and discovery opportunities.
