OUR APPROACH TO EDUCATION: THE PATHWAYS PLAN
Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee welcomes children between six weeks and five years old, using the research-based curriculum of Teaching Strategies GOLD. This curriculum was founded on 38 objectives for development and learning, acting as predictors of school success based on school-readiness standards. In conjunction with this approach, Pathways uses the ELLM curriculum to support the learning needs of VPK (Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program) age students. As a nationally accredited school, through NAC (National Accreditation Commission) and GOLD seal certification recipient from the Department of Children and Families, Pathways upholds the most rigorous educational standards.
Furthermore, Pathways partners with the USDA food program to provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch and after-school snack to all students. Research shows there is a direct correlation between proper nutrition and school success. Pathways is dedicated to ensuring each student is prepared to learn every day.
