PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services wants to make it easier for your kids to get a head start on school.
The department has launched a new website to find early learning programs in your neighborhood.
All you have to do is type in your zip code and sort by “Keystone Star” levels, hours, and other services available.
In a press release, DHS Secretary Ted Dallas, said:
“Families consider their child’s health and safety a first priority in child care, and we absolutely agree,” said Dallas. “In 2016 we increased requirements for our family child care homes to receive pre-service and annual inspections to align with our requirements for group child care homes and child care centers. Since the new requirements were enacted, we have conducted nearly 5,500 inspections. These inspections give us a new opportunity to ensure health and safety regulations are met and help our family child care homes improve quality.”
