NAPLES – Students at Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee (Pathways) will have greater access to the center’s nationally recognized, evidence-based curriculum because of a $10,000 grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation. The grant will fund Pathways’ Tuition Assistance Program for families that would not otherwise be able to afford year-round early education. Pathways currently has a diverse group of 122 students ranging from four-weeks to five-years-old. While every parent contributes financially towards their child’s tuition, Pathways offers a sliding fee scale so that more children have access to its programs during this critical time of growth and development. As one of only fifteen Nationally Accredited Early Education Centers in Collier County, Pathways has been serving the community for 55-years. To schedule a tour, visit
