Early Learning Resource Center

YWCA Greater Pittsburgh partners with Butler County Children’s Center to implement Pennsylvania’s Early Learning Keys to Quality, an integrated and coordinated system of program quality improvement that supports Early Childhood Education (ECE) and School-Age Care (SAC) programs. Providing services to counties in Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) Region 3 (Butler, Beaver, Lawrence, Indiana, and Armstrong), YWCA implements Keystone STARS, a responsive system to improve, support, and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania.

Allegheny County is one of the counties that have moved to code “yellow” as of May 15th. Following Governor Wolf’s directive, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s operations remain largely remote. Our Early Child Development Center, with locations at our Homewood-Brushton Center and Propel Braddock Hills is now open. YWCA’s staff is working remotely to continue to provide important services to our community. Please check our website frequently for service updates and to sign up to be a friend of the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.  For a list of local resources, please follow this link.
