These words I hold true and always keep them in mind when working with our students at Apples Bananas Roseland. Our children are all different and each one has a unique talent or way of learning. We guide them by providing them with rich hands on experiences which help them achieve their full potential. We embrace their differences and provide them with a nurturing and all-inclusive environment filled with wonder and fun. Our teachers incorporate a play based project approach to learning. Our children get to learn all they can about specific ideas or discoveries they make along the way.
