About The Children’s Community School

The Children’s Community School (CCS) is an NAEYC-accredited non-profit preschool and early learning program in West Philadelphia serving children aged 18 months to 5 years old. Founded in 2010, it has grown to a current enrollment of 65 students during the 2022-2023 school year, with 20 full-time staff and an annual budget of more than $1 million.

Currently, 21% of CCS’s students receive tuition assistance, either through public programs like PHLpreK and CCW or through direct scholarships and financial aid awarded by CCS. CCS is actively pursuing significant expansion of our facilities in order to increase capacity beginning in the 2024-2025 school year to better serve local families seeking high-quality early childhood education via public funding programs.
