High-Quality Early Childhood Education

Keystone STAR 4 Program, Licensed with the State of Pennsylvania

At Chinatown Learning Center your child will learn in a high-quality preschool environment that will prepare them for kindergarten. Keystone STARS is a voluntary state-funded program that promotes quality in child care programs. We participate in Keystone STARS because we believe that high-quality early education is key to children’s future success in school and in life. We are recognized as a Keystone STAR 4 program, which is the highest rating. Our teachers are highly qualified with either a Bachelors or Associates degree in Early Childhood Education.

Chinatown Learning Center is committed to supporting the Philadelphia community by providing high-quality bilingual education and care to preschool children; providing high-quality after-school and extracurricular enrichment programs to students in grades K-8; and offering resources and support to help parents with limited English proficiency gain access to services that benefit their families.
