Outreach tools for Keystone STARS Programs

An important part of providing quality early education through Keystone STARS is reaching out to families and educating other leaders in your community. Visit this page often for new tools and tips to help educate your community about quality early education and Keystone STARS.

NEW! Keystone STARS Directors can receive one PQAS hour (D8.17.C2) and a supply of STARS window clings upon completion of "Using Keystone STARS to Market your Program to Families" in the PD Registry. The e-learning course is free, full of marketing tips, and shares family focus group feedback to help STARS staff contemplate how they "show and tell" quality during site visits. It is available (visible in the course catalog) only to Directors, Supervisors and Owners of Keystone STARS programs.
