Heather Pacione, RECE
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR | GREEN APPLE KIDS
I love being in the company of the children, learning from them, and seeing how they grow into their own individual selves.
I graduated from George Brown College, with a diploma in ECE a little over 10 years ago. I had an opportunity to work within a few excellent community based childcare centres thereafter.
My life at Green Apple Kids began six years ago as a registered ECE, and in that time I have been fortunate to wear many hats and have progressed to Assistant Director.
My professional development and education coupled with my experiences with the children has afforded me the opportunity to grow into the leader I am today – a leader that supports, connects and learns every day.
I live my life through travel, experiences and compassion for others. I also try to laugh often – usually at myself, at movies and in the company of family and friends (both two legged and four legged).
I am proud to be part of the Green Apple Family.

ACTING ASSISTANT DIRECTOR | GREEN APPLE KIDS
I am a proud mother of a little girl who is my inspiration and encourages me to be the best teacher I can be. I enjoy reading, listening to music and love to dance and sing.
I am a George Brown College graduate with over 20 years experience. I have loved the years of mentoring and encouraging children to learn and grow. Following their lead and letting them explore has helped me to see the world in a creative way.
A big part of being an RECE has been building the relationship with the families. Being their support system and encouraging them through the process of raising their child has proven to be a gratifying accomplishment. Knowing that I have the ability to share my knowledge is great!
I’ve had the pleasure of working at Green Apple Kids for the past 8 years. During that time, I’ve had the opportunity to work in the fast paced toddler room and the adventurous infant room. These experiences have lead me to further my professional career as the Assistant Director.
I look forward to continuing to strengthen my skills and continue to grow in the Green Apple Family.
