Paths to QUALITY is Indiana’s statewide quality rating and improvement system for early care and education programs. It uses four levels of standards, each one building on the previous one. Early education providers start at Level 1 and work towards national accreditation at the highest level, Level 4, for significant quality improvements at every level.
