When my daughter was 13 months old, I chose to enroll her at An Apple A Day Academy, and not only was I the parent of a student, but I soon became an employee because of the family atmosphere. That was 5 years ago, and it still doesnât feel like work, itâs more of a family and a partnership. Throughout my time with AADA, Iâve earned many certifications including CPR and First-Aid, STAR Baby and Iâve earned an FCCPC. Iâm currently on track to receive my Directorâs Credentials in the Fall of 2018. My favorite things about working at AADA, in addition to the overall environment, is also that we have access to Reggio-inspired workshops, I am able to watch the children grow up, start talking and learn numbers, and I get to have an impact on not only what they learn, but how they learn it. I work with the 18 months to 2-and-a-half-year-old children, and itâs the most rewarding job, second only to being a mom to an amazing, empowered AADA student. Iâm proud to be a part of the AADA family!
