Becoming a part of the Louisiana Pathways Child Care Career Development System enables you to:


select professional development opportunities that lead to building a career rather than simply satisfying a licensing requirement
utilize training provided outside of secondary and higher education that meets designated criteria and builds a core knowledge base
select training to meet licensing mandates and Quality Start requirements that is meaningful, relevant, and engaging to you
seek continuity of instruction that builds on the experiences you have on a daily basis in your work in early care and education programs.
