Education Spotlight October 2015 Early Years Child Care Centers Opens New Cranberry Location

Early Years is proud to expand to its FIFTH North Hills location, conveniently located at 1310 Freedom Crider Road next to the Tri-County Soccer arena.

For more than a quarter of a century, Early Years Child Care has been taking care of children in the North Hills and has continued to grow and expand to meet the demand for their services with the Cranberry location being its newest center. In addition to the new Cranberry location, Early Years has four other child care centers in Allison Park, Butler, Gibsonia and Ross Township.

As with all their locations, the Cranberry location is a highly-secure, nut-free environment, accepting children from six weeks old through the third grade. The children are separated by age groups so the daily programs are structured for the correct level of play, learning and interaction.

“For example”, continues Ms. Bergdahl, “with our Toddlers and Pre-K groups, we prepare your child for kindergarten with ‘learning through play’ where fun games and creative activities are used to teach the fundamentals a child needs to know to ensure success in elementary school. The children have so much fun they do not even realize they are learning.”

Additionally, all Early Years Child Care Centers, including the new Cranberry location, are Keystone STARS Accredited. This special designation, through the Pennsylvania Department of Health and Services, indicates that Early Years achieves the highest standards possible for child care centers that go above and beyond meeting the standard necessary qualifications.

“Having five locations spread out across the northern area, enables us to keep classes small so that each child receives individualized attention while providing convenient access to working parents and a break for grandparents”, explains Maureen Bergdahl, owner of Early Years.

The new Cranberry location is now enrolling. To schedule a tour of the new Cranberry location, call (724) 449-7088 or email
