Pathways Accreditation


“We found the Pathways application kit to be self explanatory. Children’s Institute made it clear and easy to understand the paperwork, and the process was organized, realistic and attainable. The web application was user friendly and easy to access. The online system allowed us to work when it was convenient for us.”
–Tracey Frank, Director of Child Care Services
Park Ridge Child Care Center, Rochester, NY

“I like the choice of ECERS-R and ITERS-R for the basis of classroom observations. It’s important to use a normed assessment instrument for that purpose.”
–Karen Costello, Owner
Faith Child Care & Nursery School, Rochester, NY

"Children have benefited greatly from Pathways. We incorporate many hands-on activities to expand on their learning experiences and it allows us to connect many different centers to one theme. For example, in our planting theme, children "read" stories about plants to their friends, hold real worms in science and play with seeds in the sensory table. It all connects together."
-Ms. Jean, Lead Teacher

"I am very impressed with primary and continuity of care. My infant has bonded with her teacher and runs to her every morning. I can see how important that bond is and it makes me feel confident leaving her with her teacher in the morning. I anticipate her transition to the toddler room will be a smooth one and I'm excited she will be with the same caregiver who knows her temperament."
-Kim F., Parent
