If you want to feel like you are leaving your children with their grandparents every day—take them to Playtime. We don’t live close to Saylorsburg… at all. We are in the Jim Thorpe area. I used to work in Swiftwater before taking my current position in Bath. I was happy to drive from Jim Thorpe to Saylorsburg to Swiftwater every single day… and backwards… so our son could be loved by the teachers at Playtime. I’d rather drive an hour out of the way to take him there as opposed to any of the other local daycares or daycares en route to Swiftwater. We have tried several, and it didn’t last very long. Playtime is unique as they make you feel like part of their family. Our son has learned so much there and they teach him the basics that he needs to be a great and loving person. I especially love the flexibility of varying work schedules, the family activities (Mother’s Day Tea, Camp Fire, Ice Cream Social, and Father’s Day Brunch), and the projects that he brings home. Playtime is giving him everything that he needs to go to Kindergarten next year and then some. It will break my heart when he does go to Kindergarten and we will have to find an after school program somewhere else for him since he will go to Jim Thorpe School District. Safety at Playtime is of top concern, I love the new system that you have to use your digital fingerprint to enter the door. I highly recommend Playtime Learning Center, Miss Debi and her crew are amazing. Your most precious gifts should only be left with people who will care for them, love them, and teach them how to be wonderful people… Playtime Learning Center will give them all of that and more.

Deb and her team are a wonderful group of people. We were kicked out of our other daycare due to my oldest son having a disability. Playtime took me in and has worked with me my son and my other 2 children. They are a blessing. Glad to work with a group of people who can accept my children as they are.

In 2012 our son was 3 years old. My husband and I flew into Playtime learning center in desperate need of childcare due to another facility being unkind...
As my husband and I looked around at Playtime Learning Center I immediately broke down into tears. The rooms were bright and cheery. The playground was AWESOME and I believe Ms. Debi hugged me after I introduced myself with my teary eyes.... That is a vivid memory to me because that was the day we found our son an extended "home." A "family" that literally took us in and took care of our son. We knew we found the place we could bring our son to that was going to make sure he was safe, well taken care of, and prepare him for school.
Each staff member is unique and has the freedom to add to the curriculum, and that certainly shows! That day, back in 2012, I saw butterfly cages and "things" growing in pots in the room. I saw kids with sweat and dirt on them from playing outside. I saw laughter and I saw lots of warm encouragement from the staff. Through the years I saw water games on hot days. Popsicle days! An entire garden the kids help plant. I saw so many fun activities and more importantly, I saw kids being kids....every single day.
I can't express enough how blessed we have been to have found Playtime Learning Center when we did. As my son is growing (a big 1st grader now), we have had to "adjust" his child care. Even when I told Ms. Debi of our situation, because we are in a different district than PV, she still told me her door is always open, that we are family and our son will always be apart of that...
To anyone looking for high quality child care, please check out Playtime Learning Center. The staff is still the best, and they are very accommodating! We can't thank them enough for just being who they are!

"I had a wonderful experience working with the staff at Playtime Learning Center. Being a professional from another agency and going into a daycare, school, or other forms of businesses that work with children, can be challenging. That was not the case with Playtime Learning Center. The staff was very welcoming, and open to my advice about how to work with the client, I was working with. The staff are great with the children and very hardworking. I had a wonderful experience and wish that other daycares are as friendly and inviting as this daycare is."

Hi Miss Debi,
We wanted to take a minute to thank Playtime Learning Center for everything you do. I want to thank you for making this transition so easy for me. As a new mom, I was very sad about not being able to stay home with my daughter. You and your staff made it much easier for me by just spending a few minutes with me when I would drop her off and pick her up. I knew she was going to be in great hands! Casey has been with you now for almost a year and to this day, your wonderful staff will spend time with me when I drop her off and when I pick her up to tell me what she did during the day, how her mood was, what she ate and even how much. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to know what she is doing during the day.
Thank you for all you do and for taking such wonderful care of our daughter!!

The greatest place in the Poconos to take your children. My kids love their time there. My son is going to kindergarten next year; and because of their staff he is more than ready. Thank you guys so much for everything you have done for my family.
We sent my two grandchildren here and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. The PLAYTIME LEARNING CENTER is a very safe, a very loving, fun, fun, fun, and fun learning! The staff is extremely patient, and understanding. My granddaughter went for 3 years until kindergarten and my grandson went for 3 yrs. too. They loved it! We loved it! We have NOT ONE BAD THING TO SAY ABOUT THIS PLAYTIME LEARNING CENTER. Trust me, you will be happy here and you can feel SAFE at work while your child is in the care of the PLAYTIME LEARNING CENTER.
Best place to work. Great, caring owner, Debbie. Wonderful co workers, like family. Love the kids and their parents. .......Mr. John Infant Teacher
My daughter loved her years with Debi and her staff. They were like her second family which gave me peace of mind. She learned so much at Playtime. I would highly recommend bringing your child/children to Debi.
