Sharing our Expertise–What High-Quality Looks, Sounds, and Feels Like

Children’s Village’s PQAS-certified staff offer firsthand experience and encourage workshop participants to share their perspectives.  Our aim:  providing peer-to-peer guidance to best respond to the needs of children and families.

Children’s Village is launching Philadelphia’s first hands-on Learning Lab for education professionals within a high-quality early learning program.  Children’s Village has created state-of-art adult classroom space, located on-site at our nationally accredited STAR4 early education program.  Construction is now underway for classroom and other renovations to ensure our facilities best accommodate our professional development efforts, including classroom observations. Keep checking back for more information on the array of training available through our Learning Lab.  Want to know more? Contact Zaina Cahill, Early Childhood & Learning Lab Director.

OUR IMPACT-Testimonials and Professional Development In Action

  • Children’s Village recently hosted an event in our new adult classroom facility to showcase our Business Administration Professional Development training for ECE Directors.  Eight program Directors presented Action Projects, which related to budgeting, human resources, staff retention, and braided funding.  Through the Action Projects, Directors applied what they had learned to their day-to-day operations. 

Because of the training, my program has transitioned from surviving in the industry to thriving,” Alice Martin, Irene A. Oakley Champion Learning Center

“The training has helped me share with staff the tools they need to be successful –and as a result our center will be successful and so will the children,” Kia C. Douglass, Acclaim Academy
