"We're very honored to have the title of being an APPLE accredited school since 2008," said Gretta Hill, director of Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Valrico. "Our teachers and staff work extremely hard to provide the best education possible to our students, and we're happy this commitment has been recognized by APPLE through their accreditation. With this accreditation, we are giving parents the confidence that their children are being taught at a school which values quality in early education."

With over 900 accredited programs and many more engaged in the process, APPLE is one of the largest accrediting programs for early learning centers. In Florida, APPLE is accepted as one of Florida's Gold Seal Quality programs. According to the Florida Association of Child Care Management's website, studies show the positive effects of high-quality early learning centers on the physical, cognitive, linguistic, social and emotional outcomes of young children. APPLE was developed by owners and operators of early learning centers and is grounded in the unique perspective of the business of childcare. The owner/management team has the greatest impact on the quality of any early learning center, and the developers of the APPLE program recognized the importance of balancing the standards to improve quality and the financial impact it may have on the children and families served.
