Early Learning Standards

Pennsylvania’s Learning Standards for Early Childhood are research-based according to age and development and form the foundation for curriculum, assessment, instruction and intervention within early care and education programs. For those using the Parents as Teachers curriculum, it is important to show the alignment between Pennsylvania’s early learning standards and the PAT Foundational Curriculum.


Read about the Infant/Toddler Curriculum Alignment (PDF) and the Pre-K Curriculum Alignment (PDF).
