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
