A Message from Mary Graham,
Executive Director

Now in our 43rd  year, we are serving 450+ toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age (k-7th grade) children at Children’s Village. While we continue to grow and respond to the needs of our community, Children’s Village’s commitment to high-quality early care and education remains unchanged. Children’s Village supports the needs of the whole child. We foster a child’s social, physical, intellectual, emotional, and creative development, all within the context of the family. This foundation best prepares a child to flourish throughout school and life.

Children’s Village respects that families are key to children’s learning success. Children’s Village is an inclusive, collaborative community that embraces diversity; we welcome and support every family and encourage our families to get involved in the life of the center.

Our dedication to providing a safe, child-centered environment extends beyond the walls of our classrooms. Children’s Village is a passionate early learning advocate. We work to ensure that the doors to high-quality early learning and school-age enrichment programs are open to every child.  As a sought-after resource, we share what we know.  We are expanding our distinctive professional development role:  Children’s Village is home to Philadelphia’s FIRST professional training hub for early learning educators within a high-quality early learning program.   We are sharing our expertise with teachers, directors, student-teachers, and others through our new Learning Lab.

I hope you’ll visit our website often for announcements and updates. Take a moment, too, and “stroll” through our Art Gallery; you’ll marvel at the children’s artwork on exhibit!

Mary Graham
Executive Director
