UPCCC Participates in the Keystone Stars Program


Programs that participate in the Keystone STARS program are making a commitment to provide a quality education for your child.  The Upper Perkiomen Child Care Center is a proud participant of the Pennsylvania Keystone STARS program.  Keystone STARS is a state-funded program that promotes quality child care service.  The STARS program helps us to fulfill our mission of providing high quality early learning opportunities for your child. We are a Keystone STARS 4 center.


STARS Programs meet quality standards for:


  • Teacher qualifications: Early childhood teachers have the education and knowledge to work with young children.


  • Classroom and learning activities: 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!


  • Working with families: The program treats families as a partner in their children's growth and development and helps families access other community resources that they may need, like food assistance through WIC or health insurance through CHIP.


  • Management: A quality program has to have sound business practices to ensure your child's safety and learning.


When you choose a quality child care/early learning or afterschool program, your child:


  • Is safe while you are at school or work

  • Will be encouraged to explore new things

  • Will learn important academic skills like language and numbers, but also how to play well with others, follow directions, an practice self-discipline
