Wonder Moments

Our library books have to be replaced, not because they’re lost but because they’re worn. We encourage life-long readers and learners.

Many children of staff attend Children’s Village — including my three!

The Nutrition Program introduces many children to new foods. Parents often ask Chef Bell for her recipes.

We serve families throughout the city. Some take two buses and a train rather than send their children to a program in their neighborhood.

Children’s Village encourages artistic expression. One former student took the lessons to heart; she now attends Moore College of Art and Design.

Former students often invite their Children’s Village teachers to their high school graduation.

I love learning from the children. One taught me about Pointillism, paintings made up of little dots. I wonder where he learned that? Here!

A parent told me that if she had 6,000 children, they would all attend Children’s Village.

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

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
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.
