Start Strong PA is connected to Early Learning PA 

Early Learning PA (ELPA) is a broad-based coalition that advocates access to voluntary, high-quality early learning opportunities for all Pennsylvania children. ELPA’s public policy agenda focuses on four key components of early learning opportunities: pre-kindergarten, child care, home visitation, and early intervention. The ELPA coalition supports targeted campaigns dedicated to advancing its early learning agenda including Pre-K for PA and Childhood Begins at Home.
