Pennsylvania's Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRCs) provide a single point-of-contact for families, early learning service providers, and communities to gain information and access services that support high-quality child care and early learning programs.
ELRCs can help families find the best child care for their children. They offer links to services like:
• Child Care Works, Pennsylvania’s child care subsidy program
• Keystone STARS, Pennsylvania’s quality improvement program for child care providers
• PA Pre-K Counts and Head Start
• Early Intervention Services
Through the ELRC, child care professionals can obtain support in building quality outcomes for children by working with quality coaches to achieve Keystone STAR 3 and 4 status, building connections with community partners, and supporting children and families in accessing additional services, such as PA Pre-K Counts, Head Start, home-visiting, and Early Intervention.
