APPLE Accreditation Releases New 2019 Standards Manual24-Jan-2019
Today is an exciting day!! We are pleased to officially release the APPLE Accreditation 2019 Standards Manual!
Every 5 years, APPLE Accreditation undergoes reauthorization to continue to be a Gold Seal Quality Program Accrediting Body. As a result, APPLE Accreditation has revised its standards to align with Gold Seal requirements, current regulations, and best practices. The APPLE Team is excited to roll out the new, user-friendly standards manual. This coincides with APPLE Accreditation's 20th year of improving quality in early learning centers. We are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to an exciting year helping providers, families, and children in early learning.
- If it is time for your center re-accredit in 2019 and your center would like to operate under the 2016 manual, we will grant this permission for a limited time. Please turn in your application indicating the 2016 manual preference by Friday, February 15th, 2019
- If your center has already turned in an application for re-accreditation, you automatically will accredit under the 2016 manual. No action is needed.
- If you are unsure what you would like to do, please give our APPLE support team a call and we would be happy to answer any specific questions as it pertains to your center.
- The 2019 Standards Manual and Checklist is officially on the website in the Members Only area. For your convenience, we have also included the standards manual in this email.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, please know the APPLE Team is here to help. Please call 1.877.634.9874 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
