Paths to QUALITY™

Paths to QUALITY™ is a free, voluntary resource that offers providers knowledge, training, and coaching, all focused on helping you provide quality child care, preschool, and school-age care. As an early childhood professional, you receive incentives as you advance through each level of care. Some incentives can be used to promote or reinvest in your child care program, and others benefit you directly.

Benefits of Paths to QUALITY™

Paths to QUALITY™ helps professionals and programs provide high quality care and education through free resources, cash and non-cash incentives, professional development opportunities, and one-on-one coaching relationships.
