St. Matthew Preschool: Level 3 PTQ
St. Matthew Community Preschool has achieved a Level 3 rating in Paths to QUALITY™. Paths to QUALITY is Indiana’s quality rating and improvement system for child care programs. It is a consistent set of standards to help parents identify licensed family child care centers, licensed family child care homes, and unlicensed registered ministries that have met state requirements for health and safety.
Paths to QUALITY is a voluntary statewide system created to improve the quality of child care and early education for children. It gives all families a tool to find the best quality program for their needs, and supports and recognizes providers on a four-level rating system. The system has been studied and validated by the Child Development and Family Studies experts at Purdue University.
St. Matthew Community Preschool has been providing preschool to Clinton County since 1976. It is their goal to continue to provide a safe and happy environment for all children under their care as they continue to provide a stepping stone to a child’s education. Thank you Clinton County for your continued support.
