Two locations, one partner in care and education

Our original location opened in June 2007 and we opened our second location in 2014 in response to growing demand for quality care and education.  Through our two locations, we partner with families from when their child starts as an infant or toddler to attending elementary school.

About me…

I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with a major in Family and Child Development. I got married in 2012 to my husband Andy and together we have 2 boys Brayden and Blake. As a family we love to spend time outdoors. I grew up racing dirtbikes and now share that passion with my husband and children. We spend our free time being active outdoors riding dirtbikes and playing baseball. My passion for early childhood education began in high school where I took classes in order to achieve my Child Development Associate along with my high school diploma. From there, I began working in childcare first as an infant teacher and then as a nanny. In 2010 I began my journey with AppleTree as a preschool lead teacher. I enjoyed every moment of teaching the children here for 3 wonderful years until I left to stay home with my youngest child and finish school. I am thrilled to be back with AppleTree  and to be back working with you and your children!
