FCCC Overview

Friends Child Care Center provides a stimulating learning environment for young children that encourage them to be caring, curious, responsible human beings. Our staff of dedicated, well trained and caring individuals promote physical, social and intellectual growth in children while fostering the development of self-reliance and independence.


Friends Child Care Center has 84 children currently enrolled. Families either live or work in the surrounding Center City Philadelphia area and our population reflects racial, cultural and socio-economic diversity of our urban community. Children leave our preschool program competent and prepared; FCCC alumni attend Quaker schools, independent, charter and public schools.
