My 16-month-old has been in a Keystone STAR 3 early learning center since she was 6 weeks old. She absolutely loves it and has grown so much! It’s only me and her at home, so this gives her ample opportunities to socialize with other children and adults.
I work with her at home on things like her verbal skills while we play, but she always seems to say or do something I didn’t teach her. I know she’s getting a high quality, developmentally appropriate education.
I also use the Child Care Works Subsidy to be able to afford such a great learning environment for my daughter. I actually don’t know how I would be able to afford child care without this assistance! And without child care, I wouldn’t be able to work and support us. I am so grateful for these programs.
