Caring Right from the Start

We encourage the growth and development of children from infancy through grade 6.

Preparing Them With Play

Through play children develop the skills that will lead them to succeed in school and later in life.

Certified Outdoor Classroom

Certified by Nature Explore, our Magic Circle Playground is leading the way in nature-based outdoor learning.

Day of Play 2017 logo
PIC's first Day of Play will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017 and feature family activities on the playground, a plant sale, a children’s concert with Alex Mitnick of Alex and The Kaleidoscope, and a night-out for grown-ups featuring a great lineup of West Philly bands. While many aspects of our long-loved Plant Sale remain, this year's event will offer several new twists, turns, and lots of great music!

PIC offers high-quality care for children ages 6 weeks to 6th grade. Our early learning and school-age programs are nationally accredited and provide age-appropriate curriculems to support children during the most importanl years of their development.

Play is the work of children, and it's the most important work in the world! Learning through play sparks imaginations and helps children explore options, work through differences, and learn to cooperate.

A place to stay informed, learn about events, find forms, and discover helpful resources.

At PIC, we are making magic by creating the city's first certified outdoor classroom. Learn about the transformation of our main playground into a place for nature-based play and enriched learning.

Whether you are a PIC family, alumni, friend, business, or foundation, there are plenty of ways to be involved.
