Finding black-owned child care centers in Pittsburgh is not easy. One of the constant questions in the Pittsburgh Brown Mama’s Private Facebook Group is, “Where can I find a good child care in Pittsburgh?”
Well I like helping my mamas solve their problems. So, you asked for it and here it is. It would be impossible for me to list every childcare center in Pittsburgh.
Instead, I’ve created this list of black-owned childcare centers in Pittsburgh. Just to be on the safe side, this list is not an endorsement of any center.
However, all of these child care centers have been recommended by a mom from the Pittsburgh Brown Mamas group at one time or another. As any #goodmama would do, please do your research and find out which child care center best meets your needs, lifestyle and parenting style before enrolling your child.
Here is a free, downloadable quality child care checklist you can use.
This list of black-owned child care centers in Pittsburgh is a great place for you to start though. So, read on my sistah. Read on.
