Paths to QUALITY™ is Indiana’s statewide rating system for early care and education programs. It is a free resource to help families make informed decisions and to help early care and education providers improve the quality of their programs.
Paths to QUALITY is a voluntary system. Each time a program advances to the next level, they demonstrate a commitment to supporting children’s development, learning, and future success in school and life.
