In light of health and safety protocols, Children’s Village looks a bit different but our dedication to providing play-filled, meaningful educational experiences for children remains the same! We are committed to responding appropriately not only to the pandemic but also to the needs of children and families.  Watch a slide show of our Reopening Plan here.

Because we cannot welcome you to tour at this time, we are instead ‘opening the doors’ to you through photographs–and a video clip that’s sure to make you smile.  To give you a glimpse of our program in action, scroll to see children creating, discovering, learning, and playing!

You’ll also find our menus and other information to gain a sense of what the day looks like for children.  We will continue to add photos so please check back often!  In the meantime if you have questions about enrollment, please contact Beth Baker, Family Services Director, at (215) 931-0192.
