Paths to QUALITY is Indiana’s voluntary quality rating and improvement system for child care. This system is the first and only child care rating system in the state.


This free and voluntary system provides a structured framework with concrete goals through which a provider can progress with the assistance of a professional mentor.


The system validates programs and providers for ongoing efforts to achieve higher standards of quality and provides incentives and awards for success.
