Education is complex and personal at the same time. As Milwaukee early childhood education practitioners, you know how critical it is to close the achievement gap for a child, family and the community. Your organization’s programs and services are solution-driven and have widespread impact.
AppleTree is a Washington, DC-based nonprofit with a mission to close the achievement gap before students get to kindergarten by providing three- and four-year-olds with the social, emotional, and cognitive foundations that enable them to thrive in school. Founded in 1996, AppleTree consists of a research and development institute and a public charter preschool with campuses across Washington, DC.
Jack McCarty, AppleTree’s President and CEO and Anne Zummo Malone, Chief of Growth and Impact will share the organization’s journey and how the award-winning instructional model is achieving results in AppleTree public charter preschools, and 22 other schools and community-based organizations in Washington, DC and New York City. In 2018, the organization reached over 3,400 three- and four-year-olds or one-third of preschool and pre-kindergarten charter school students in Washington, DC.
