Early Childhood Care and Research

The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) is committed to providing early childhood services to Pennsylvania's young children, with special attention to those at risk of school failure. Research consistently shows that children at risk of school failure benefit from quality early learning opportunities, with economic and education benefits which extend to our families, communities, and the commonwealth. This report provides information about how well the commonwealth is reaching its young children with quality early learning services, with special attention to at-risk children for Fiscal Year End 2010-2011.

The report:

  • compiles information on the number of children served through OCDEL programs;
  • shows the funding levels for early childhood programs supported by state and federal investments;
  • includes an analysis of educational and family risk factors; and
  • identifies counties and cities most likely to benefit from early childhood investments, based on these risk factors.
