Recognizing a Paths to QUALITY Provider

How do you know if your current child care provider is involved in Paths to QUALITY? Or, perhaps you are looking for a child care provider involved in Paths to QUALITY and you don’t know what to look for?

Child Care providers involved in the Paths to QUALITY program will have any one or all three of the following to display their involvement to the community or families:


Paths to QUALITY Provider Stamp

The Paths to QUALITY provider stamp is used by providers currently involved in Paths to QUALITY. This stamp may be used in marketing materials, paperwork or other parent communication material. This stamp recognizes that this provider takes quality child care seriously and is continuing to develop an even stronger child care program that will deeply impact your child’s future.

Paths to QUALITY Certificate of Achievement

The Paths to QUALITY certificate of achievement is given to all active participants that have achieved Level One, Two, Three or Four. The certificate recognizes the specific level and the date the provider achieved that level. Providers may display the certificate in their facilities or homes.

Paths to QUALITY Decal

The Paths to QUALITY decal is given to all active participants that have achieved Level One, Two, Three or Four. The decal will show, in blue, the level the provider has achieved and will also have the date the decal was awarded to the provider. The decal is a window static cling, so many providers will have the decal on the window or door of their facility or home.
