About Us

Pathways to Play is a licensed and accredited early childhood program in South St. Paul that serves children 6 weeks through 10 years of age.

We use the Creative Curriculum model (published by Teaching Strategies) in our program: a child-oriented curriculum that engages children using hands-on activities, and focuses on all areas of their development.

Pathways to Play is open year round, Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, with full and part time scheduling options for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school aged children.

Accreditation

Pathways to Play Early Learning Center is nationally accredited by NECPA and is a certified NACCRA provider for military families.

We have a Four Star Rating from Parent Aware, which is the highest possible rating.
