Quality Assessment

AppleTree Golden Apple Award

The quality of care and education that we provide each child is AppleTree and Gilden Woods' first and foremost concern. In order to make certain our standards are being met, AppleTree and Gilden Woods have developed the Golden Apple Quality Assessment Program. This program helps to ensure adherence to our corporate standards in educational practices and curriculum, conduct, safety, policy, and programming.


Corporate Quality Assessment representatives make quarterly visits to each location. These visits consist of classroom observations, building and grounds examinations, teacher qualifications and paperwork reviewing, and safety and sanitation inspections. Our high standards are what our parents have come to expect at AppleTree and Gilden Woods Early Care and Preschool.
