Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRCs) provide a single point-of-contact for families, early learning service providers, and communities to gain information and access services that support high-quality child care and early learning programs. ELRCs consolidate the work of former Child Care Information Service Agencies (CCIS) and the former Regional Keys to create an enhanced resource and referral system for communities seeking early learning services and supports.
Whether you are a parent or guardian looking for child care or you are an early learning professional looking for professional development opportunity or technical assistance for your program, your ELRC can help you understand the quality of a child care/early learning program and help you help children in Pennsylvania grow! For a young child, everything is a learning experience. An early learning program, such as child care or Head Start, can affect how well children do in kindergarten, school, and in life.
