PA Keystone STARS is an initiative of the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) to improve, support and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania.

Looking to achieve higher STAR levels? First you must complete the Core Series (a series of professional development sessions) and apply for technical assistance through your STAR Specialist. STARS technical assistance may take many forms, including mentoring, demonstrating and one-on-one consulting. Our experienced staff works closely with your organization to develop an individualized service plan that outlines goals and objectives aimed at achieving a specified knowledge area or STAR performance standard. Our staff is professionally trained in: Early Learning Program /Curriculum, Partnerships with Families and Community, Leadership/Management, and Staff Qualifications.
