Lake Ridge Head Start Earns Highest Possible Rating

head start level 4 rating

The many challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic did not prevent Lake Ridge Head Start from taking part in a voluntary quality rating systems review.

Paths to QUALITY™ is the state of Indiana’s quality rating and improvement system for early childcare and education organizations. The program consists of four levels, with each level building on the foundation of the one before it. Providers like Lake Ridge Head Start begin at Level 1 and work their way toward national accreditation at the highest level: Level 4.


Lake Ridge Head Start has been informed that it has been granted Level 4 status — the highest rating possible! 

This is incredible news and a well-deserved recognition for our Head Start program. Congratulations to our outstanding staff!
