Identifying Quality Care
Quality comes first in your search for child care, preschool, pre-K and school-age care. You want your child to have a safe, warm and brain-building environment. Thankfully, programs like Indiana’s Paths to QUALITY™ system can help you connect with quality care.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what to look for. Below, you’ll find information on the factors that ensure safety and quality. As you look for a great program, be sure to ask about them about each of these areas.
