In 1998, after graduating from Douglas college with diploma’s in Early Childhood Education, Jeanette and Chantelle Henderson opened Red Apple Preschool in Coquitlam. In 2006 the community and their families were in need of a daycare so the girls expanded the school and opened Green Apple Daycare- Coquitlam. In 2008 Green Apple Daycare expanded to include a Port Moody location on Ioco Road.
In 2010, 2012,2013, 2014, 2015 and recently for the year of 2017 Green Apple Daycare recieved “The A-List Award” for being voted the #1 top daycare in the Tri-cities along with a 2015 Golden Spike Nomination for service.
