The Caring Place Child Care is a state-of-the-art, secure child care facility, located at the JCC of Scranton, just blocks away from the University of Scranton, Mercy Hospital, Lackawanna College and Commonwealth Medical College.

The rooms are bright and sunny, with separate classrooms for each age group. A warm, home-away-from-home atmosphere includes staff who love children, who have been with us for many years because of their commitment and feelings for young children.

Experienced child care teachers provide age-appropriate programs and activities, including outdoor playground time, swimming, and gym, for children from 6 weeks old to kindergarten.

The Caring Place Child Care participates in the Pennsylvania Keys Star Program to insure that our staff are aware of the most up-to-date child care ideas, and their training and experience provide each child with the best child-care experience possible.

Every child is welcomed at our day care, which is open weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Reasonable rates and flexible schedules, with both full and part-time availability, meet parents’ needs for access to top-quality child care. Our facility is licensed by the state of Pennsylvania. Security doors at both the building entrance and the entrance to the child care rooms protect our children.

We provide a nurturing environment, and work to instill positive values. We invite you and your child to spend some time with us.  Call us for your free trial day!

For ages 3-5, check out the JCC Pre-School.

Tours of the facility are available Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30am and 5:00pm
