2007Year Opened

Two locations, one partner in care and education

After opening in June 2007, the need for quality care and education i the Walker community continued to grow.  In 2014, we opened our second location in 2014 to better serve our families.  Through our two locations, we partner with families from when their child starts as an infant or toddler to attending elementary school.

Assistant Program Director

Hello! My name is Savannah and I have been a part of the AppleTree family since September 2013. I started off in the Faris room as the assistant teacher until I was offered the Lead Infant Two Teacher position. I was in the Infant Two classroom for two years before being offered the Team Lead position, which helped mold me into the Assistant Director position where I am currently!
I grew up in Cedar Springs, but currently call Sparta home! I have been married to my husband Rich for 5 years. We have two sons, Oliver who is 4 and Archer who is 2! They both attend (and love!) AppleTree with me! On the weekends we like to spend time together reading, watching movies, and doing fun art projects! We also like to go for walks with our border collie, Indie.
I have my Associate’s Degree in Child Education. I have over three years worth of care experience, as well as two years administration.
I look forward to working with you and your family and if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to ask!
