PSFC In Action

"Welcome Summer" Picnic

Children, staff and some family members enjoyed a picnic lunch this month at our East Stroudsburg Center. The summertime treats included corn on the cob, watermelon, hot dogs/burgers, salads and ice cream. Everyone had a great time outside in the sunshine!

We are closing on this building on June 24!

Mark your calendar. This is an exciting day for our agency! We have so many great plans for the new Mountain Community Education and Service Center, which will offer programs for all ages, from children to seniors. The community's support is needed and appreciated -- please go to our Donate tab to make a difference. Thank you! 

Senator Scavello is guest reader

State Senator Mario Scavello visited our Clear Run classroom during Month of the Young Child and read "Kite Day" to our preschoolers. The children loved his hat, the story, and posing for photos. We thank him for supporting PSFC and high quality early childhood education!

A Golden Evening

Our 50th Anniversary Gala for Monroe County Head Start was a memorable occasion. The cocktail hour gave attendees a chance to socialize, enjoy hors d' oeuvres, look at photos and bid on silent auction items. Pictured are Keynote Speaker Blair Hyatt, executive director of the PA Head Start Association, and PSFC parents Jessica and Rick Kline.

LANAEYC Recognizes our High Quality Program

Our agency was presented with a certificate recognizing our STAR 4 and NAEYC accreditations during the spring conference of LANAEYC in Bethlehem. The honor also applauded our commitment and hard work towards "inspiring young minds to do great things." Teachers Mary Ann Ciccolella and Kelly Lehmann accepted the award.

Now Hiring Teachers!

With additional funding received from the state, we have been hiring teachers, classroom assistants and substitute teachers for our new preschool classes. Go to our Careers and Volunteering tab to learn more about applying for a position.

Our Mission:

To provide resources for the evolving needs of community children and families, in support of efforts to achieve their goals.

Pocono Services For Families & Children

Pocono Services for Families and Children provides comprehensive, supportive services for young children and their families in Monroe County to promote success in school and life. A nonprofit agency, PSFC has been serving our community's most vulnerable young children and their families since 1965 and today serves over 200 children and families in six sites/13 classrooms in strategic locations around Monroe County. To better meet the varied and unique needs of our community, PSFC continues to expand services and implement new programs. Research proves a return of $7.00 on each $1.00 invested in early childhood education. PSFC is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and its programs have earned a Keystone Stars 4-Star Merit Award, the highest state designation available.
