Early Learning Resource Center Region 17

Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) Region 17

provides a single point-of-contact for Montgomery County families, early learning service providers and community members looking to gain information and access services that support high-quality child care and early learning programs.

ELRC Region 17 can help families find the best child care for their children. They offer links to many services, including:

  • • Child Care Works, Pennsylvania’s child care subsidy program
  • • Keystone STARS, Pennsylvania’s quality improvement program for child care providers
  • • PA Pre-K Counts and Head Start

Through ELRC Region 17, child care professionals can obtain support in building quality outcomes for children by working with quality coaches to achieve Keystone STAR 3 and 4 status, building connections with community partners and supporting children and families in accessing additional services, such as PA Pre-K Counts, Head Start, home-visiting and Early Intervention.
