Children’s Center Earns ‘Four-Star’ Renewal

The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, Office of Children, Youth and Families, Bureau of Child Day Care Services has renewed the four-star status of the Children’s Center through the Keystone Stars program.

Four stars is the highest possible designation through Keystone Stars, a voluntary, continuous quality improvement program that recognizes child care providers who exceed state health and safety licensing requirements.  Pennsylvania providers can be designated as one, two, three or four stars based on achieving performance standards in staff education, the learning environment and administration—all areas that have been identified as making a difference in the quality of child care.

The College’s Children’s Center offers a nurturing program for children ages two to five years that blends the characteristics of a top-notch child care environment with the enrichment of an outstanding preschool setting. The Center is one of 10 in the country identified as being exemplary in engaging its diverse families by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

Located at the Central Campus in Blue Bell, the Center is open year-round from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and offers a summer camp program June-August. For additional information, call 215-641-6618.
