The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce recently hosted a Meet & Greet plus the 55th Birthday Anniversary for The Pathways Early Educational Center formally known as Immokalee Day Care located on 415 Colorado Ave in Immokalee.

The entire daycare building was beautifully decorated with all kinds of foods, a lovely birthday cake with a wine toast and colorful raffled gifts by Beth Hatch who is the Executive Director of the Center and her staff.

Immokalee’s Pathways Early Education Center is Nationally Accredited and is a Gold Seal Licensed program and one of only 15 nationally accredited programs in Collier County. Each accreditation is valid for three years with strict center compliance. The National Accreditation Commission has 91 Standards divided into six component areas and our center is a big part of these accreditation’s.

The Immokalee community is so grateful to have Beth Hatch, Executive Director and her second in command Brandon Dowdy, Director of Development. Both Beth and Brandon have lots of constructive ideas on running of the center for future years here in Immokalee.

The Immokalee Chamber of Commerce President Danny Gonzalez and his Board of Director’s want to congratulate Beth and Brandon and the center staff members for a “Job Well Done”.

The highlight of the event was having the “honorable Bill McDaniel” Collier County Commissioner for District 5 to come and celebrate the 55th Birthday Anniversary of the Pathways Early Education Center being in business and still thriving in the community of Immokalee.

Michelle Blackmon is Pathways Early Education Center Director here in Immokalee. She is doing an outstanding job !
