The philosophy of the Penn Children’s Center is learning through play. Our play based curriculum is individually centered allowing learning to emerge naturally around areas and activities of the child’s interest. We foster the cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of each child through their interaction with their environment, their peers and their teachers.

The Center promotes a positive self image and sense of worth within each child with special emphasis on cultural awareness. We build partnerships among parents, teachers, staff and the community recognizing that active participation of parents is an essential part of a quality early childhood experience.
