Congratulations on Winning the 2017 Golden Apple Award

Ms. Alyssa B.

Program Director

I am Mrs. Alyssa—the Director here at our Hudsonville location. A little bit about myself; I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. I started my journey with AppleTree at the Walker school in July 2012 as the Terance room lead, and then moved to Pratt room in December 2012. In March of 2015 I took over as the Center Director of Walker and my passion for early education has continued to develop through the growth I experienced with AppleTree.

My Husband Jordan and I live in Zeeland with our son Brody and daughter Mia. We also have two crazy cats! I love spending as much time with my family as possible, being outside, reading, fishing, and learning new things I can relate back to early education.

Please feel free to approach me with any questions, concerns or compliments! By working together, we will create a wonderful environment for your child – one where they can learn and love!

Ms. Kelsey S.

Assistant Program Director

Hello, I am Mrs. Kelsey and I have been working at Appletree since August of 2012 and at the Hudsonville location since 2015. I graduated from Jenison High School and then attended Davenport University for Medical Assisting before pursuing a career and education in Early Childhood Education. I married my husband in October of 2015. We live in Jenison with Ruby, our Bernese Mountain Dog and have a 1 year old daughter named Harper. I enjoy shopping, camping, fishing and being outdoors! I am so excited to get to know all of the families and children here at the Hudsonville location!

"I love AppleTree - the teachers are amazing and my daughter blossomed there! When she met her kindergarten teacher, her teacher said to me, "I love AppleTree kids! They are always ready!" She told me my daughter is more than ready to start school!"
