Isn’t sending my child to a state certified childcare center enough?


A certified center does meet Pennsylvania's minimum requirements for safety. However, certification does NOT address early education. A child's first years are crucial to their lifelong learning, and the quality of their learning experiences will affect their readiness for school. Keystone STARS programs combine these safety requirements with Early Education standards to give children a safe and educational environment.

What will my child get out of being in a Keystone STARS program?


Many things! Individual attention, daily learning activities, a safe, friendly, and respectful environment, feeling good about themselves, a well-educated staff, parent involvement, and more.

What do parents get out of having their children enrolled in a Keystone STARS program? 


Knowing that your child is safe and respected, that your child is learning something new every day, and the security of knowing what to expect from your provider in certain situations. Most of all, giving your child the best opportunity to succeed today and in the future.

What are the requirements set by Keystone STARS?


Star centers are based on quality standards in four key areas:

1. Staff education — early childhood teachers have the training and knowledge for working with young children.

2. Learning environment — the program has a variety of materials and activities for each age level that makes it possible for children to learn something new every day!

3. Leadership and management — a quality program has to have a sound business practice to ensure your child's safety and early learning.

4. Family and community partnerships — parents and community members are encouraged to become a part of the child's learning.
