The Nutrition Program introduces many children to new foods. Parents often ask our chef for the recipes.

A parent who had seen our class at Franklin Square chose to send her children here. She now has four kids enrolled with a fifth on the way!

A parent who had seen our class at the park followed us back to Children’s Village to complete an Enrollment Application for her own child. 
Preschool teacher
I love the way Children's Village is so accommodating to immigrant families and families new to the area. I learn a lot because of this outreach.
A parent
Children's Village offers an extremely diverse environment and they are very intuitive and dedicated to your child's educational process.
A parent
Look at the walls filled with artwork and projects. Children have ownership here at Children’s Village.

After two months at Children’s Village, one of my English-speaking preschoolers spoke to his family in Chinese!

During a trip to the Franklin Institute, one of my students told me it was the best day of her life.

Children are always excited to go to our PNC GROW UP GREAT library! It has 3,000 books, including some in French, Chinese, and Spanish.
Preschool teacher
Children’s Village graduates often return to complete required high school community service hours here.
School-Age teacher
Our library books have to be replaced, not because they’re lost but because they’re worn. We encourage life-long readers and learners.
Mary Graham
I love learning from the children. One taught me about Pointillism, paintings made up of little dots. I wonder where he learned that? Here!

I know we selected the right school for our preschooler.  Today, he asked what 'indigenous' means. My wife and I looked at each other in surprise!
Mat Huffman, parent
Former students often invite their Children’s Village teachers to their high school graduation.
School-Age teacher
We serve families throughout the city. Some take two buses and a train rather than send their children to a program in their neighborhood.
