Server 2008R2 - How to make top level folders "read only," but files and subfolders can be modified / deleted?

Folder structure on a Windows 2008R2 server, active directory environment is as follows:

- Shared Folder
        - Subfolder 1
        - Subfolder 2
        - Subfolder 3
                - SuperSub folder A
        - Subfolder 4
                - SuperSub folder B

etc...

The goal is to setup the Subfolders 1/2/3/4 to NOT be able to be deleted by the "employee group," but for that same group to be able to delete files in the subfolders along with the files and the "superSub folders".

Essentially, I don't want the employees to be able to delete the subfolders themselves, but have full control over everything in them, including more nested "supersub folders".

Tips appreciated on setting this up?
