Every Child Ready is a comprehensive instructional model that drives how to teach, what to teach, and how to tell it’s being done to increase teacher effectiveness and children’s learning in early childhood classrooms.
AppleTree has piloted and refined Every Child Ready in all 31 AppleTree Early Learning Public Charter School classrooms. Now, AppleTree is also implementing the instructional model in 21 classrooms at 3 public charter school campuses (Tree of Life PCS, Potomac Lighthouse PCS, and Center City PCS) and one DC public school (Brightwood Education Campus). AppleTree is working to expand and scale Every Child Ready as a national prototype of a groundbreaking, evidence-based instructional approach that improves child outcomes.
AppleTree’s Every Child Ready efforts have been recognized nationally through two federal Early Reading First grants successfully operated in DC public school, DC public charter school, and Head Start classrooms. In 2010, the US Department of Education validated AppleTree’s efforts by awarding a highly competitive Investing in Innovation (i3) grant to further develop and codify Every Child Ready.
