Little People’s Village is a high quality child care center and summer camp facility located in the historic Overbrook neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We offer Infant through school age care. We are a part of the Philadelphia School district and offer Prek Counts at or site, We service families and children in the Philadelphia area as well as parts of Delaware county and the Main Line region. Little People’s Village originally opened 11 years ago as a small home-based daycare facility and many of our staff members from the very beginning are still with us today. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child so we fill our village with love, support, and fun.
Our mission here at Little People’s Village is to provide safe, affordable, high quality child care for children from 6 weeks of age until they enter school. We work to build a community of children, caretakers, and highly involved parents to ensure that each child receives the best quality of attention to help them learn, express themselves, and grow by leaps and bounds. We create a diverse supportive community to encourage self-confidence, the development of vital thinking skills, and the ability to learn from mistakes. Love, acceptance, and respect are important values we strive every day to instill at Little People’s Village. Our curriculum is specialized to help your child learn through play and interaction with both peers and adults. The quality of our program has been recognized in our community; we are a part of Keystone Stars and have an active partnership with the Philadelphia area United Way. We provide a home-like environment that supports each individual as they learn and grow at their own pace, and we are dedicated to helping not only children but entire families reach their goals about learning together. By providing this supportive space for children, we help them to learn the skills needed to succeed not only in kindergarten but well into the rest of their lives
