Kamecia Clark has been caring for children for 2 years. Kamecia shared with us, “Working with Paths to QUALITY and being provided a coach, I have the added support and knowledge in child education. The requirements in Paths to QUALITY set standards for my program which only caused me to gain/attain more information and put more work into it, which has gotten my this far. When I am able to understand the children in my care, I am able to provide them with their own learning experiences.
