Over the past two years, we have been proud to partner with Generation Next and the Bush Foundation on Pathways to Quality, a program that aims to equip child care providers with training and tools to prepare our youngest learners for kindergarten.
We recently produced an in-depth report on year two of the program, but also wanted to capture its key takeaways in a visually engaging, “quick glance” way. To that end, we have created a Pathways to Quality web page that walks through the high-level questions, answers, and solutions we have identified over the first two years of this initiative.

A first of its kind in Minnesota, this study examined how families gather information, weigh factors, and eventually decide on an Early Care and Education (ECE) program and a school for their children’s kindergarten year. Additionally, the study explored how parents supported their child’s transition between ECE and Kindergarten.
