Help For PA Parents Deciding On Child Care

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG РThe PA House advanced a measure to help parents and caregivers with the decision of which day care to send their children. House Bill 1742 would require all state licensed child care centers to post their Keystone STARS rating in a prominent location and on their websites. The Keystone STARS program, operated by the state Office of Child Development and Early Learning, sets quality requirements for early childhood educators based on a four-star rating system. All licensed child care centers that meet the state’s health and safety requirements are required to be part of the system. The standards address staff qualifications and professional development, early learning programs, partnerships with family and the community, and leadership and management. The bill now awaits consideration by the Senate.
