Applegate Nursery School is a non-profit organization that has been offering a child and family centered preschool program in Davis since 1976. The school offers either morning or afternoon sessions five days a week for children from two through five years old.

To be placed on our waiting list please call the school for a brochure and an application. You can also see photos of the school and download an application at the school's website: http://www.ApplegateNurserySchool.org. There is an application fee of $50 (half of which is refundable if you withdraw your child before being offered a space). The average wait last year for the morning program was 18-24 months. The wait for the afternoon program is much shorter. Enrollment for the following fall is done beginning in March but applications are accepted year round. Applications are kept on a list in order of your original application date. Once you have been offered a space, we will schedule a time for you and your child to visit the school before you need to make your final decision. If you have any questions, please call us at 758-4850 or e-mail us at ANS (at) dcn.org.

2011-01-08 15:12:01   Both of my children attended this amazing preschool and we have nothing but compliments to share. If you ask almost anyone with children in Davis....they have heard of Applegate and its excellent reputation. There are three or four top notch preschools in town, and Applegate is most certainly included in this group. That's why there is always a wait list! In fact, our oldest child started at another preschool while we were still on the Applegate wait list. I'm can't describe in words the difference in feeling between the two environments. The Applegate teachers are experienced, nurturing, and know how to create a happy, play-based environment using years of experience. You can feel it when you walk into the room! Though my own children have moved on to Elementary school now (and were certainly well prepared for kindergarten), we miss Applegate tremendously. Everyone in our family continues to have close friendships with children and parents that we met while at Applegate. We always wave and yell "hi Applegate" as we drive by. My children will forever have fond memories of this exceptional school. —JAD

She loved the teachers, the playground and all of the fun activities! My son starts at Applegate next year, and we can't wait! The teachers are so wonderful and nurturing—it is a wonderful atmosphere for preschoolers. As a parent I couldn't ask for a better preschool for my children. We love Applegate! —GoAgs
