A. getting started in the pelican/early learning network for pa pre-k counts, head start and stars providers:

Are you and your program new to entering child data in the PELICAN/Early Learning Network (ELN)? Are you a new director and are now responsible for ELN data collection? Here are some important resources for new users to the PELICAN/ELN system.

System Requirements

Make sure your computer meets basic system requirements - You will need a computer with internet access in order to enter child data in ELN.  While high speed internet access is preferred, it is not required. You do not need to purchase special computer software programs. Check the system requirements for the online authentic assessment tool you are using to collect child outcome data. If a computer with internet access is not available at your program, try to identify other local resources including: public libraries, school district buildings, etc.
