Mission: AppleTree’s mission is to close the achievement gap before children get to kindergarten by providing three- and four-year-olds with the social, emotional, and cognitive foundations that enable them to succeed in school.
Founded in 1996, AppleTree is a non-profit organization consisting of a research and development institute and a public charter preschool with campuses across Washington, DC.
Together, they produce and use an award-winning instructional model that is implemented at all AppleTree public charter preschools, and at 22 other schools and community based organizations across Washington, DC and in New York City. In 2018, we reach over 3,400 three- and four-year-olds or one-third of preschool and prekindergarten charter school students in the District of Columbia.
Through our signature early learning program Every Child Ready, we help students build the foundational skills that are necessary to thrive in kindergarten and beyond. In fact, children who enter AppleTree programs below grade level typically graduate at or above it.
AppleTree is seeking talented teachers and staff to join our mission to close the achievement gap before children enter kindergarten.
AppleTree offers the opportunity to truly transform early childhood education, while being part of an innovative, mission-driven team, with strong opportunities to advance your career.
Our mission takes place inside the classroom and out. No matter your role, your work will help AppleTree Institute improve the life trajectories for vulnerable three- and four-year olds.
Our work is grounded in five core values that guide how we work together to achieve our mission:
