Can you please provide more information about your free programs PHLPreK and PreK Counts?
PHLPreK and PreK Counts are government-funded educational PreK programs for Philadelphia residents with children who are 3 and 4 years old. You can read more about these programs here. Just like in our other programs, we guarantee:
⭐ Highest quality of education based on research-proven forward-thinking curriculum and Pennsylvania Learning Standards
⭐ Beautiful rooms in accordance with the highest standards for educational facilities
⭐ Big outdoor playgrounds
⭐ Professional teachers who treat children with love and respect
⭐ Exceptional preparation for school
⭐ Tasty and healthy homemade style meals
So, if my child gets a slot in the PreK Counts or PHLPreK program, I don't need to pay anything?
Correct. Your child's attendance is completely free if you only attend 8:30am - 2pm on school days (according to the Philadelphia School District calendar). If you want your child to come earlier, leave later, or attend during school breaks (except summer) and on the days the school district is closed (within the center's working hours), then your weekly co-pay is $100. Summer break is not covered by these programs. Summer rate is $200/week to attend.
