The Keystone College Oppenheim Family Children’s Center has once again been ranked as one of the best in Pennsylvania
The center recently received another Keystone STARS Award from Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL). The Children’s Center has received the Four-Star Award each year since 2003. The Keystone STARS rating and improvement system rewards early learning centers in Pennsylvania which continually exceed state standards for the overall quality of their programs while maintaining the core principles of inclusion, diversity, and respect for all.
“The Oppenheim Family Children’s Center has long been a valuable asset to our campus and our entire local community. We are proud to again be recognized as one of the best in Pennsylvania.”

“We are extremely gratified and honored to receive this recognition from the Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning,” said Keystone College President Tracy L. Brundage, Ph.D. “The Oppenheim Family Children’s Center has long been a valuable asset to our campus and our entire local community. We are proud to again be recognized as one of the best in Pennsylvania.”
Founded in 1976 and reestablished in a new location and named after community leader and longtime Keystone College supporter Jane Ellenbogen Oppenheim in 2004, the center provides preschoolers with a top quality education program conducted by early childhood professionals and also serves as a training opportunity for Keystone students majoring in education and related fields. The facility is licensed and inspected by the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare and accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
With the lowest tuition of any private college in Northeastern Pennsylvania, Keystone offers more than 40 undergraduate and graduate degree options in liberal arts and science-based programs in business, communications, education, natural science, environmental science, and social sciences. Located 15 minutes from Scranton, Pa. and two hours from New York City and Philadelphia, Keystone is known for small class sizes and individual attention focused on student success through internships, research, and community involvement.
