What We Do

FACT SHEET: Impacting Children, Families, and the Community

Mission: Founded in 1976, Children's Village is a non-profit that provides early childhood education and school-age academic enrichment distinguished by excellence and family diversity. Working together with children, parents, and the community, we promote a society that is fair, compassionate, and economically vibrant.

Who We Serve
* Enrollment 416 {50 toddlers, 216 preschoolers, and
150 school-agers (K-7th graders)}
* 88% of children are from low-income families
* 76% of families speak a language (Chinese, Indonesian) other than English at home
* 25% of our toddlers and preschoolers have special needs

Setting the Highest Standard of Excellence
* Nationally accredited since 1996 by the National Association
for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), recently earning exceptional scores.

* Awarded the highest rating, STAR 4A, by Keystone STARS initiative measuring quality early learning programs.

* Establishing Philadelphia's first Learning Lab for early education professionals embedded in a high-quality program -- we are teaching the teachers and program directors.

A Lasting Impact on Children, Families, and our Community
* Quality early learning launches a lifelong, positive trajectory. Students who attend high-quality pre-k are more likely to: graduate high school, enroll in higher education, and have increased lifetime earnings.
* Every dollar invested in quality early education generates a $16+ return. The savings accrue from reduced costs for special education, public welfare, criminal justice, and other services.
* Parents who have quality early education available for their children miss less work, stay on the job longer, and are more productive at work.
