Stanczykiewicz said he hadn’t thought about that possibility.
He said the overarching goal of the Paths to Quality system is to promote child care facilities that foster healthy youth development in all areas – including education.
“It’s an intriguing idea,” he said. “People are spending a lot of time working on this issue. The last big, unplowed ground in Indiana is early childhood education.”
Davison said a little state support would be welcomed. She would love to see every child of working parents enrolled in a quality program that would capitalize on that child’s early brain development.
“We want to give them a head start while they still have a fighting chance,” she said.
