PA’s Promise Infant Early Learning GPS:
Helping families set the right course for their children’s success in kindergarten and beyond..

Every family wants their young children to have quality early learning experiences, but don’t always know where to turn. Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children’s Infant Early Learning GPS (Guiding Parents Smoothly) is an interactive way for families to think about what they can do to support their children’s early learning and receive simple steps they can take and reliable resources for more ideas.

  • Their child’s brain;
  • Their child’s development;
  • Their relationship with their child; and
  • When their child is not with them.

The GPS is designed as an online quiz to create an engaging learning experience. Families choose the answer that best fits their situation and receive customized tips and resources based on their answer. Families are reminded that although this is set up as a quiz, it is not a test. There are no scores and no “wrong” answers – just the answer that they feel is right.

The GPS can be used by one individual, as a way to guide conversations between families or a parent and a professional, or as part of a parent workshop.


Watch a 10 minute tutorial for organizations and professionals working with families on how to use the GPS with families in your work.

Toddler and preschool versions of the GPS are slated to be launched in spring 2013. To view the GPS, visit and click on the logo.
