Presentation of the “Bright Star” award, sponsored by The Northwest Institute of Research and Clarion University, will be held at 1:30 pm tomorrow at Early Connections -West Side, located at 420 W.6th St. in Erie.

A Keystone STARS Star 4 facility, the center is being honored for its inclusive experience in two classrooms, where children with Individualized Education Plans participate in a high quality early childhood curriculum with “typical” children in the least restrictive environment.

The site is also being recognized for its strong partnership with the City of Erie School District and the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit’s Early Intervention Program, as well as for its voluntary participation in the Pennsylvania Keys to Quality Early Learning’s Family Engagement Pilot Project.
