Dear Parents,

We are happy to announce our purchase of the Apple Tree Academy family of preschools in Stuart, Palm City and Jensen Beach. Investing in the lives of children and their families is of utmost important to us. We are eager to join the current team of Directors, Assistant Directors and teachers to support and expand the high quality, developmentally appropriate early childhood education programs and care that your child receives.

I started my career in education because of my love for children. I was a Director/ Executive Director for Professional Learning Center which started in Jupiter and then expanded throughout Palm Beach County. In 2006, I founded and was the Principal of Jupiter Academy.

Since 2013, I have worked for ChanceLight Behavioral Health, Therapy and Education working with and developing partnerships with school districts throughout the country. My husband John worked for Kings Academy in West Palm Beach and most recently worked with the Palm Beach County School District. We have four grown sons, two granddaughters and licensed foster parent through Place of Hope and currently are fostering a 5 month old baby boy. We attend Christ Fellowship in Stuart and serve in various roles at the campus.

We understand how rewarding but also how challenging the role of parenting can be at times, especially a working parent. We all want our children to be safe and happy while providing them with the best learning experiences possible. We can assure you that we are committed to continuing to provide the best possible care and education and our role, along with the wonderful team at Apple Tree Academy, is to assist your child on their learning journey giving them the freedom to explore and develop in a warm, nurturing environment.

Kind regards,
Lisa M. Chitty
