State & Local Data on Quality Early Learning

Having a better understanding of the early learning needs in your community, can help to address the need for affordable, quality early childhood care and education for all children in Pennsylvania.

When families cannot access quality, affordable child care, they often struggle to find and retain sustainable employment or advance their careers. This is particularly true for working women.
