The Savvy Apple Preschool

We are an eco-friendly, blended methods preschool serving children ages 12 months to 5 years! Visit us at to learn more!

This picture was taken just a few seconds before the one that was posted yesterday. I was going to post THIS one, and then I took a closer look at one particular child, laughed hysterically, and decided to post the other instead.

I shared this with the mom and my decision to not post. She said, "just do it!". So, with her permission...I hope this makes you laugh, too!

It's never a dull moment when you work with kids! 😍😂

We've never met a puddle we didn't like. 💦


You’ll always be our Savvy kids! Good luck in kindergarten. We know you’ll do great! ❤️❤️❤️

Nothing like a room {almost} full of sweet, sleeping littles! 😴 #naptime #fastasleep #allbutone

Today was “Bring Your Goat to School Day”. Only one child participated 🤷🏼‍♀️. Thank you T for sharing Ginger with us! We loved it!

Letter of the Week: Why We DON'T Do It

New blog post! Great read for parents AND teachers!

We're saying it loud and proud: Letter of the Week is NOT the only way (and in our opinion, NOT the best way!) This scene has been played out in early childhood classrooms across the country for years:It's Monday. A child enters their classroom and at some point during

I was in a classroom with our four year olds today. They were scattered around the room doing activities of their choice. From across the room I heard one of our kids yelling. I walked over and asked him to use a quieter voice. He said, “But I had to yell because the words in the book were BIG.” Well, I can’t really argue with that! #conceptsofprint #earlyliteracy #mowillems #elephantandpiggie #preschool #fouryearolds #preschoolliteracy

DIY #beyblades made from #legos . Our summer camp kids came up with this idea and have been creating beyblades from legos, using different pieces to make different shapes and altering them to make them spin better. Children are amazing. Their natural creativity, ingenuity, and imagination explode in the right environment.

Want to join our team? We are looking for a part time assistant teacher to help out in the afternoons! #werehiring #lowcountryjobs #beaufortscjobs #beaufortsc #portroyalsc #blufftonsc #preschooljobs #lovewhatyoudo #awesomepeopleapplyhere

The things we do with our children right now matter. The things they do, the things they see, the things they hear, these things matter right now. These experiences are helping to shape who your child will be when they are 1, 5, 10, 20, and even 50 years old.

Read to your child. Sing to your child. Talk to your child. Take away the iPad. Turn off the TV. Pick them up early. Give them hugs. Give them kisses. Let them be bored. Make them go outside. Save spiders. Pick up trash. Eat vegetables. Donate. Volunteer time. Laugh. Play. Be in the moment.

We are raising our future.

Love when we spot something so cool in nature. Something had been eating our sunflower leaves, and we think we’ve discovered the culprits! 🌻🦗 The kids didn’t mind their munching; it’s worth it to have these guys to look at!

When you think about teaching your children about the world, what do you want them to know?

We want our children to learn that the world is bigger than themselves. We want them to reach out and connect with people. This starts here, right now. You have to start small to work towards the bigger picture. We start by making connections inside our school, classroom to classroom. ❤️🌎✌🏽

Best way to beat the heat! Thank you Burton Fire District!

Can’t get enough of these little guys!

Work time in our Little Seedlings room at the beginning of the year looks quite different than it will towards the end, or even middle, of the year. Our newest and youngest kids at The Savvy Apple are learning how to spend their day at school. For most of them, this is their first school experience. Choosing work, completing it, and returning it to its place is a process that will take several months for them to master as an independent skill. It’s all a learning process and each routine, as simple as it seems to us, is a building block to the next step in learning and becoming independent.

Our summer campers worked dutifully to create this representation of The Stars and Stripes, our great American flag. 🇺🇸. We wish you a happy 4th of July! #preschool #summercamp #partyintheusa #4thofjuly #independenceday #americanflag #patrioticdecor #redwhiteandblue #lowcountrylife #lowcountry #beaufortsc #portroyalsc #beaufortpreschool

Today's the big day: Graduation Day!

Somehow, the years flew by and these kids are ready for a new adventure. Many of them started at The Savvy Apple as one year olds, just barely toddling around on their feet. Today, those same little feet will carry them confidently through our halls, past rows of parents and families, and up to the front of the ceremony. They will show off a little of what they've learned and who they've become.

Big Sprouts, today is your day! Congratulations!

First day breaking in the splash pad! 💦🤸‍♀️

That’s a wrap on our first week in the new building! It’s hard to say which part the kids like best, but I’m pretty sure the playground is near the top of the list!

When you have help from the best in Beaufort, moving’s a breeze! If you’re making a move, Redcap - Lowcountry Service Concierge are the people to call!
Big thank you to our Shift 2 Burton Fire Family for lending your time and muscles too. 💪🏼❤️

We showed our youngest kids how to pick dandelion puffs and blow the seeds to watch them float away, and they were instantly living their best lives. 💚 #authenticchildhood #dandelion #preschoolfun #toddlers #childreninnature #preschool

Ms. Aimee is our Little Sprouts assistant teacher. In a week, she will graduate from TCL. She is wrapping up her time there with an award for TCL’s Graduate of the Year, and we can’t think of anyone who would be more deserving!

Aimee is the type of person who will give you the shirt off her back. She is incredibly giving with her time and talents. She is the kind of teacher who goes to her kids sporting events after school. She is loving and invests time into our school community. She is a former United States Marine who has faced tough deployments to protect our country. She is disciplined and has an amazing work ethic.

We love you, Ms. Aimee, and are so proud of you!

Let’s set the scene: two boys were arguing. One of our older children stepped in, crouching down to their level and talking them through the issue until it was resolved. As teachers and parents, we sometimes feel like we need to rush to aid our children when they get into arguments or scuffles. This isn’t always necessary. We are big on teaching children the skills necessary to resolve conflicts with their words. To watch it in action is amazing.

Just some unprompted enthusiasm for their favorite team!
