Congratulations on Winning the 2018 Golden Apple Award

Ms. Bridget R.

Program Director


My name is Bridget and I am the Program Director at Gilden Woods Early Care and Preschool in Grand Ledge.

I have worked at Gilden Woods for three years now. I started at the Okemos location as the Lead Infant Two teacher. Quickly after I moved to the Assistant Director position. I have worked at the Grand Ledge location since our opening in September 2017 and have loved getting to know all of the wonderful families.

I am originally from Pinconning, MI. My husband and I have made our home in the Lansing area and since welcomed our son, Hendrix, in the summer of 2018.

I attended Central Michigan University and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development. I have worked in the child care industry for six years now and have loved every minute of it. I absolutely love seeing the children meet new milestones and form connections with their caregivers and myself.

I look forward to working with your children and families each and every day!


Ms. Bethany Z.

My name is Bethany and I’m the Assistant Director here at the Grand Ledge Gilden Woods. I have been a part of the AppleTree/Gilden Woods corporate family since September of 2014. I was raised in the Jackson area and moved to Lansing with my husband in 2018. Together we have three young girls, three cats and a dog! I graduated from Spring Arbor University and have my degree in Psychology, along with courses in Early Childhood Growth and Development. During my time at Gilden Woods I have been able to work with all ages and classrooms. I look forward to working with every family, creating meaningful relationships and fostering a high-quality, educational environment at our center. I love having the ability to work with both the staff and families in our facility!
