About Us

Brilliant Minds Early Learning Academy is APPLE and Gold Seal Accredited.

APPLE (Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment) Accreditation is a national early learning program accreditation that recognizes early learning centers for operating high-quality programs. Research shows a direct link between a high-quality early learning experience and a child’s future success. APPLE sets the standards that accelerate an early learning center’s drive to achieve that level of care and education outcomes.


In 1996, the Florida Legislature established the Gold Seal Quality Care program to acknowledge child care facilities and family day care homes that are accredited by nationally recognized agencies and whose standards reflect quality in the level of care and supervision provided to children.

Accreditation as a Gold Seal Quality Care program demonstrates a level of educational professionalism and commitment to quality standards that surpass the broad benchmarks of health and safety. These programs go beyond the required standards that all Child Care Facilities must comply with as they continue to pursue excellence. The FCCPSA joins with the Child Care Program with an in-depth Self-Study program based on established national standards, combined with a detailed inspection process that will guide the center to meeting the high standards necessary to become a Gold Seal Quality Care program.
