Centre and Staff
Green Apple is Licensed with the Ministry of Health under the Community Care Facility Licensing act. Our staff are licensed Early Childhood Educators, have undergone routine criminal record checks and hold a valid first aid certificate.
I've been working in Out of School Care since 2005. I love to create with the children using recycled material. My specialty is creating Art from miss matched, old puzzle pieces. I believe my job as an Early Childhood Educator ( assistant ) is too support and provide children with opportunities for positive, enjoyable interactions. I love to encourage creativity and assist in helping with their problem solving skills. I love what I do and look forward to meeting all the new children who come through Green Apple Daycare's door.
I've worked at Green Apple since 2014. I absolutely love working with kids because they have such incredible personalities, humour and wit. The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the proud look on their faces when they've learned something new or accomplished a task they've been working hard at. Having built such strong connections and trust the children know they can come to me with any problem or situation they may encounter. To me, it's more than just a job. Its about creating a happy and stimulating environment to help guide them towards becoming bright, capable, young adults.
