Appleseed Academy Staff

It is our goal for all teachers to have at least one year of experience in a licensed facility. We value our staff and want to ensure they have time to unwind throughout their day. For that reason, we also have a breaker on staff in order to provide our teachers with two 10 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch each day. Each member of our staff is First Aid/CPR Certified and completes 25 hours of additional training classes each year.
