Founded in 1964, Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee is a nationally accredited early childhood education center located in the rural farming community of Immokalee, Florida. Pathways creates a positive, nurturing environment where relationships are strengthened, children are encouraged, and families are able to lay a strong, healthy foundation for their children's education. Many children are left in inappropriate settings and miss out on the learning and social interaction necessary to prepare them for the onset of public school. Our goal is to make a difference in the children in Immokalee by offering partial tuition assistance/scholarships for parents in need. Pathways provides early education services for approximately 125 children per week.
