Let Children be Children!

Playtime Learning Center and Child Care, Inc. was started around my parent’s kitchen table with my immediate family and my best friend in 1997. Even after over 20 years I can still remember the excitement of finally having my own center! Our first center was on Rt. 940 in Pocono Pines. I have so many fond memories of the staff and families we served!


Then, in 1999 I was blessed again with our Saylorsburg location! It was hard work and long hours but I loved it! After having 2 centers for a time we made the sad decision to close our Pocono Pines center. It was heart breaking for me, but I would now be able to give more time at our Saylorsburg center.


In 2000 I met my husband, Bob and in 2002 we were married. We have two children together, Gabby and Riley. We also have a dog, cat, bunny and bearded dragon! My husband Bob helps out at the center and my mom visits as she loves the babies! Sadly, in 2011 we lost my dad, Mr. Larry. He was a big part of Playtime LC as this was his first dream for me. Playtime would not have been a reality without him. 

In 2020 our world changed and with that there were big changes for Playtime. We purchased The Little Red Barn in Stroudsburg in November of 2020 and had to close our Saylorsburg location in December of 2021.

Since our opening in 1999 I have been blessed to serve so many families! I have even had the pleasure to have a few children of former students! Each day is a new adventure with the children and their families and I can’t imagine doing anything else in my life! I truly believe that I am doing what God has planned for me and I plan to take care of the next 3 generations of children!
