DEVENS — Applewild School opened a pre-k and preschool-focused branch in Devens after Labor Day and held a ribbon-cutting on Tuesday. The school prides itself on its “enriching, hands-on and nature-based curriculum.”
You can tell when you visit the site: Its classrooms and playground, which they call an “outdoor classroom,” are similar to the many play areas at the Museum of Science.
It’s fun, with a purpose.
“Applewild has a long history of being focused on high-quality academics,” said Will Aubuchon, board president. According to Aubuchon, it provides a “loving, supportive environment” where “kids are known,” creating a “really strong community.”
