My daughter talks about Children’s Village as a magical place. Her friends keep asking why they can’t attend Children’s Village, too!

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.

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

A preschooler, nervous about his first day, hesitated at the door. Another child waved and smiled, encouraging him to come in — and he did!

Look at the walls filled with artwork and projects. Children have ownership here at Children’s Village.
