School History
The Apple Blossom School and Family Center was founded in Wilton, Connecticut in the Spring of 2004 by Jessica Khoshabo, Erika Loker, and Marcia Marquis with the help of an enthusiastic and supportive parent body. We opened the doors of our temporary home in the Gilbert & Bennet School Building in Fall 2004. By Spring of 2005 we finished renovations and moved to our current home at 440 Danbury Road, Wilton, Connecticut.
