What:

AppleTree Institute’s mission is to close the achievement gap for children entering kindergarten by providing them with social, emotional, and cognitive skills. AppleTree uses an award-winning instructional model, called Every Child Ready, that is used at its public charter preschools, and various other schools and child development organizations. The Every Child Ready model is broken down into three parts: what to teach (student curriculum and thematic topics), how to teach (personalized, ongoing professional development program) and how to measure effectiveness (multi-tiered measurement of student achievement, social and emotional development, and classroom quality).

 

Where:

AppleTree currently operates in Washington DC. It is involved in various schools, including Achievement Prep, Columbia Heights, Democracy Prep, Douglas Knoll, Lincoln Park, Oklahoma Avenue, Parklands, Perry Street Prep, Rocketship, and Southwest. 

Why: 

Numerous studies show the importance of preschool education and its impacts on students’ long-term educational success. Unfortunately, not all students have access to quality pre-schooling, which emphasizes the ongoing achievement gap. AppleTree looks to close this achievement gap by transforming early childhood education. It is a national leader in demonstrating outcomes and effectiveness in early learning and teaching. The difference in students involved in Apple Tree’s Every Child Ready model, compared to students who are not, is clear. Students involved in Every Child Ready recognize 25% more letters in kindergarten, score 20 points higher on oral reading tests in 1st grade, and score 70% higher in oral reading tests by 2nd grade.
