And welcome to Appletree Kids, Inc. Child Development Centers where we understand what it means to give a child the physical, emotional, and educational nourishment you want and need for them in a caring and fun environment.

Deciding on a childcare or daycare center is a very personal decision and it is important to get all of the facts about a facility before you decide. At AKI our goal is to produce happy, intelligent, well adjusted children. We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles, and personalities. Our highly qualified teachers and staff are committed and ready to work with you and your child within each child's comfort zone to ensure optimal social, emotional, and educational results for infants, preschool, after school, and summer camp children.

Appletree Kids, Inc. was founded in 2006, but we've actually been around a lot longer than that. In 2006 Appletree Center for Children closed their doors after provided almost 20 years worth of quality child care. It was the perfect opportunity for Assistant Director, Jennifer Conner, to step up and start a new generation of quality child care. As Owner and Executive Director of AKI, Jennifer has continued providing the same great level of service and care that the city of Sulphur has come to expect over the years. We are truly a multi-generational child care center with a proven track record, working diligently to bring you and your child the best possible child care experience available.

AKI has two conveniently located centers. Our original location, Appletree Kids, is located at 919 Henning Drive, across from Sulphur Springs Apartment Complex. Our second location, Adventure Camp, is located at 619 Henning Drive across from Henning Elementary School. Both schools are designed to stimulate creativity and not just provide a place for young children to spend their days. Time is too precious not to give your kids the right start in the right place. 

Inside these wonderful spaces is a close community of caring, knowledgeable people who are committed to giving your child the next best thing to being at home with you. Our staff represents more than 117 years of childcare management and teaching experience, and we take pride in the continuity that comes from finding and keeping the best professionals. 

The purpose of AKI is to help children acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills needed for school success.

The vision of AKI is to become the most loved, and most enrolled child care centers in Calcasieu Parish.
