our Apple Ridge Academy Staff!


The high quality care we offer begins with our professional staff and the trusting, responsive relationship that exists between them and the children they care for. Our professional staff model, guide, listen, and respond, helping children feel good about who they are and helping them learn to relate to people and objects in their world. Our interaction with children promotes independence, builds self esteem, and allows for more complex use of their skills and further learning. Our goal is to give the children in our care the most valuable gift possible - a positive sense of themselves and their abilities, a desire to relate positively to others, and a strong interest in learning.


The staff of Apple Ridge Academy is comprised of teachers trained in the field of Early Childhood Education and certified by the State of Wisconsin. They are dedicated in their task of guiding your child through "A Journey to Excellence" by offering the most rewarding experiences possible. All staff regularly participate in Continuing Education programs and In-Service training to ensure that your child receives the highest quality care and early education.  All staff are fully certified in CPR/AED and First Aid, and Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention.
