Mission

The Southeast Regional Key cultivates a community of early learning and school age programs to provide high quality, nurturing educational environments so that ALL children enter school ready to learn and succeed. It fulfills its mission by managing Pennsylvania’s quality rating and improvement system in the region through case management, professional development, technical assistance, financial awards, and community engagement.


Southeast Regional Key (SERK) is one of five regional keys working in partnership with the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) to develop and implement an integrated and coordinated system of program quality improvements and professional development supports for Early Childhood Education (ECE) and School-Age Care (SAC) programs. As of July 1, 2010, Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) serves as the SERK provider for the Pennsylvania Early Learning Keys to Quality initiative, a statewide quality improvement program targeting ECE and SAC providers.
