Keystone STARS promotes quality programs that participate in Keystone STARS and care about providing quality early learning to your child.

Counting the STARS
Early learning programs can earn from a STAR 1 to a STAR 4 level. At each level, programs have to meet certain quality standards. The higher the STAR level, the higher the quality standards.
STAR levels are based on quality standards in four key areas:
- Staff education: early childhood teachers have the training and knowledge for working with young children
- 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!
- Leadership and management: a quality program has to have sound business practices to ensure your child's safety and early learning
- Family and community partnerships: Parents and community members are encouraged to become a part of the child's learning progress.
