Friends Child Care Center was founded in 1978 by employees of the American Friends Service Committee, the Yearly Meeting, and several other Quaker Organizations within Friends Center. Responding to its own success and the critical demand for child care in Center City Philadelphia, FCCC opened its doors to families outside of the Friends Center in 1980. We currently serve 100 children. We strive to reflect the cultural and economic diversity of our urban community. We encourage young children in their ability to be caring, curious, responsible human beings.
