OCDEL Announces Increased Payment Rates for Providers

Posted on: July 23rd, 2018 by Kristen Miller
Action required for providers. The PA Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) has announced it is increasing payment rates to child care providers serving children in subsidized care. Effective August 1, 2018, the Child Care Works (CCW) program will lift the base rate freeze for STAR 1 and STAR 2 providers, as well as apply a general Maximum Child Care Allowance (MCCA) base rate increase of 2.5% across all counties, provider types, STAR levels and care levels. STAR 1 and STAR 2 providers being paid below the MCCA will be paid the lower of their private-pay rates or the MCCA.
Please note:
Child care providers will receive a packet in the mail containing a new Provider Agreement and instructions on updating your rates. Providers will have the opportunity to increase/update their rates through the new agreement for certified providers. Please return the Provider Agreement completed page one (1) and signed page six (6) along with your “Appendix C-1 ELRC Subsidized Child Care Provider Reported Rates” and your published private-pay rates.
In order to be paid for the month of August, all providers in ELRC Regions 9 and 10 must submit to Child Care Consultants, Inc. the following:
  • Provider Agreement completed page one (1) and signed page six (6)
  • “Appendix C-1 ELRC Subsidized Child Care Provider Reported Rates”
  • Published private-pay rates
Child Care Consultants, Inc. must receive this information by 8/5/18.

Child care allows families to work

Posted on: May 7th, 2018 by Admin

Child care allows parents to work and employs thousands of York County residents. It is a critical component of the York County economy. More importantly, it is the foundation for future learning. Countless research shows the best way to ensure that a child will succeed in school, graduate from high school and become a productive member of society is to start them out on the right path. The research of  James Heckman, Nobel Laureate economist from the University of Chicago, concluded that the greatest return on investment is from programs that are focused on young children. The 40-year High Scope Preschool study found that for every $1 invested in high-quality early childhood education we can save $7 on costs associated with special education, teen pregnancy, high school dropouts, juvenile delinquency, welfare dependency and prison.

Dr. Craig Ramey of Georgetown University found that for every 50 kindergarten children who experience difficulty in learning pre-reading skills, 44 of them will not be reading on grade level in third grade. School performance in third grade can predict, with 90 percent accuracy, which children will go on to drop out of school. Therefore, it is imperative that we ensure that every child enters kindergarten with the skills necessary to succeed.  CCC does just that by working with parents to develop their skills as their child’s first teacher, partnering with all types of early childhood education programs to improve their quality, and working with business and community leaders and organizations to support young children and their families.
