Jenkintown Day Nursery provides a safe, enriching environment for children ages 18 months to 5. Our children receive an outstanding start to their education in small, nurturing classes, which combine learning and play. JDN's teachers promote independence, self-esteem, positive attitudes and readiness skills, preparing children for success.
Because we care about the needs of the child and the family, we welcome parents and invite them to participate in a variety of programs.
Over the years, parents who remember their own experiences at JDN have returned, entrusting their children to be nurtured by our capable, loving teachers.
Filling a Need for a Diverse Population
JDN has a richly diverse population and is the oldest non-profit childcare center in Montgomery County, just outside Philadelphia.
Fees are on a sliding scale based on family size and income. We provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack for our children every day.
We have been named the “Best Non-Profit” by the Eastern Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and have repeatedly been selected “Best Daycare” in the Montgomery Newspapers Readers’ Choice Awards.
Children at JDN celebrated Earth Week with activities in which they learned about reusing materials, recycling and reducing waste. They created "hand-made" T-shirts in which green handprints served as leafy treetops, went on a nature walk and sang "After the Rain Comes the Rainbow." The children read books about recycling and celebrating the earth, and talked about what families can to to help.
