Breanna A.


Hi! My name is Breanna Ayers, the Program Director at AppleTree-Standale. I graduated with a BA in English/Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University. While attending GVSU my husband and I fell in love with Grand Rapids and after we graduated decided to make it our home!

 In my free time I am a huge bookworm and love to visit the beach. I am also a member of the Grand Rapids Chapter of Sweet Adelines International. Singing and competing with my quartet Percolate, make music a big part of my life.

 I began my journey with AppleTree as the Lead Teacher in our three year old K Prep classroom. I learned so much from working with those amazing kiddos! I went on to serve as Assistant Director and have now been the Program Director at AppleTree-Standale since 2015. I am happy to be working in such a vibrant center where the love of learning is so evident. I truly enjoy getting to meet all of the wonderful families at AppleTree while utilizing my education experience in the role of Program Director.

"We love Apple Tree... the teachers are great. It feels like home away from home for our little guy. I also liked that we can see him in action on the apple cam anytime anywhere."
