While hundreds of Scranton teachers continue to strike, hundreds of parents have no choice but to find alternative care for their children.
A solution to at least 250 families is the United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s three childcare centers in Scranton.
The frustration is inevitable for many parents who are seeking childcare for their children while teachers in the Scranton school district continue to strike.
Working mom Marilyn Cascro is dropping her third grade daughter off at the Bellevue Center in Scranton for the day.
This childcare center is one of three under the United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
“We are committed to providing care to the kids, to allowing the parents to know they have a safe place to put their kids while they’re working and while the school strike is out.” said Michael Hanley,
Hanley is the CEO of the non-profit he explains over 250-children are now being taken care of at either the Bellevue, Progressive or Green Ridge center in Scranton.
Childcare is base on income. For more information call the United Neighborhood Centers of NEPA
