Quality initiatives for providers

Keystone STARS is Pennsylvania’s initiative to improve quality through Standards, Training/Professional Development, Assistance, Resources and Support.

The standards were based on research-based best practices, which promote quality learning environments for all children. The program has four STARS levels, each building on the prior level.

The standards measure four areas:

  1. Staff Education
  2. Learning Environment
  3. Leadership and Management
  4. Family and Community Partnerships
