Early Learning Indiana Awards $55K to Support Spanish Speaking Programs

Awards will assist in improving the quality of the programs  

Today Early Learning Indiana announced that it has awarded $55,000 in grants to 10 Spanish-speaking early education programs across the state.

Funds will be used to purchase materials and curriculums required for programs to advance to a level 3 on Paths to QUALITY, the state’s child care quality rating and improvement system. The voluntary, four-tiered system assesses each provider on health and safety standards, its overall learning environment, the use of planned curriculums and national accreditations.
