Hello, My name is Kim Aldridge and I have been working at The Learning Tree since 2014. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education and it’s always been my passion to make a difference in children’s lives. I started my career here at the Learning Tree as a Lead Preschool teacher, during this time I was promoted to a Preschool Program Specialist, I loved every moment teaching and building relationships with the children in my care and their families. I am now the Director of Happiness! In this administrator roll I do a lot of hands on support right inside the class! I get to visit each age group and am excited to be an extra pair of hands in the classroom to support teachers! Things that I enjoy in my free time are going on trips out of state, and spending time with family and friends!
