Welcome to Pathways to Quality Pathways to Quality, Quality Improvement System


In the fall of 2014, ELC of Florida’s Gateway partnered with five Early Learning Programs to create a workgroup for our quality initiative, Pathways to Quality, Quality Improvement System.


The volunteers came from a Provider Meeting that was held at the ELCFG Office in November of 2014.


Over the past several months, ELCFG and the Pilot Workgroup have collaborated efforts to design the first two of three standards of the system; Teacher/Child Interactions and Professional Development. In 2015-2016, the same workgroup will help us design the third and final standard, Child Assessments.


We are excited for our official roll out, July 1, 2015. In June, we will be conducting an “open enrollment” period for early learning centered-based programs to join Pathways to Quality.

In 2015-2016 we will be collaborating with our Family Child Care Providers to design the Professional Development Standard. They will pilot their piece of the system with us over the course of the year.
