Certification Rewrite Project Update

The Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) recently gave an update on its child care certification regulation rewrite project.

About the Rewrite

OCDEL launched the process for rewriting the child care certification regulations in October 2021. This rewrite is an opportunity for the early childhood and school-age community in Pennsylvania to co-create regulations in a way that builds stakeholder confidence in the process and:

  • Increases alignment with quality improvement

  • Promotes greater equity; and

  • Decreases burden experienced by child care providers

Get the updated project status in a recent video by Shante’ Brown, Deputy Secretary of OCDEL. Watch the video to find out when and where you can see a new draft of the regulatory package and have further input.
