Paths to QUALITY was front and center recently as more than 50,000 people lined the streets of downtown Fort Wayne for the Three Rivers Festival Parade, the kickoff to Fort Wayne’s Biggest Summer Celebration, the 46th Three Rivers Festival.  This year, area child care providers came together to promote Paths to QUALITYTM in the parade. About a dozen providers in SDA 3, along with Early Childhood Alliance staff, walked the parade route, handing out child friendly items. Celebrate!
