"I joined Apple Ridge Academy just prior to its first day of operation in January, 2010. I knew it was the right place for me to further my career in the Early Childhood field, for many reasons - but one being, this beautiful space, where open and bright classrooms are warm, clean, and inviting to children.
Secondly, play is encouraged, and staff play along! Hearing children and staff sing together, watching the exploration of environment on a daily basis, and seeing children run to their teachers arms when arriving in the morning, tells all that this is a welcoming and secure place to be.
Apple Ridge staff are early childhood professionals, who strive to learn along with the students, and expand their knowledge base in many diverse areas, while sharing their own skills - new and well-established - with other staff, for the good of the 'whole'.
Apple Ridge Academy's philosophy mirrors my own beliefs and experience about how children are best nurtured to help them grow and learn to their highest potential. Being part of an environment that encourages children to play, enjoy each other, respect peers and feel safe and encouraged is exactly the kind of environment I want to be a part of!"
