PA Start Campaign


PA Start is about building healthy, capable children. Meeting developmental needs while providing the right guidance to achieve is a delicate balancing act and can be a challenge to families and educators. We want kids to grow in a safe environment and learn how to make good choices, but sometimes we are at a loss in knowing what works best.

The downloadable materials that are available on can be used for promoting proven, evidence-based programs. These programs provide usable strategies for the caring adults who impact the life of a child. Also included on this site are reliable resource links to help you learn more about particular topics such as, developmental stages, prevention of risk-taking behaviors, and positive discipline techniques.
