Summer Campers Become Summer Staffers

Summer campers transitioning to Apple Montessori Staff in our New Jersey schools.

As a family owned business, we’re always delighted to hear stories like these about former students who come back to work as staff in our schools.

Kellie’s Story

Kellie’s mom has worked at Apple Montessori Schools for almost two decades. Kellie attended AMS from the age of 2 through Kindergarten and also enjoyed our summer camp through age 12.

Afterward, she worked part-time assisting our office staff. This year, Kellie attained her CPR certification and became a lifeguard for our summer camp program in Mahwah.

Her mother states that she has always enjoyed working at AMS because of the feeling of a warm and caring family who would give her daughter a solid sense of security. As she put it, “I knew she was being taken care of like she was one of their own children and I never had to worry.”

Kimberly’s Story

One of our AMS owners’ son, Kyle, attended Apple Montessori Schools from age 2 through 6th grade. He became best friends with Kimberly and Daniel and they were very close.

This summer the owner was introduced to the summer camp art teacher in Kinnelon and it turns out it was Kimberly!

The owner brought in her photo of the 3 best friends and it turns out Kimberly also has the same photo. Now to find Daniel for a proper reunion!

We hear many stories like this. With over 40 years in early childhood education, we’re proud to say some of our parents are former AMS students. We thank our summer camp staff for another incredible year!
