The Wilson College Child Care center recently received a $12,920 Keystone STARS Quality Improvement Grant, which will provide stipends for child care center staff in recognition of educational achievements.

The grant was awarded by the YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh through the Keystone STARS program, an initiative of the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning to improve, support and recognize the continuous quality improvement efforts of early learning programs in Pennsylvania. The YWCA of Greater Pittsburgh serves as the funding partner and the Southwest Regional Key for the STARS program.

Wilson’s child care center is located in Prentis Hall and accommodates 36 children ages 20 months to 5 years, year-round. The center provides early care and education for children of Wilson College students and staff, as well as those of Chambersburg families, through a curriculum that is child-centered and developmentally appropriate.
