From Our Website

For over 40 years, the Parent Infant Center (PIC) has provided high quality child care to children whose families live or work in West Philadelphia. Children learn through play and are given opportunity to connect with nature. In our classrooms and community, we strive to celebrate our unique diversity, including racial and cultural differences, family structures, socio-economic levels, and gender-identities. We work to be inclusive and welcoming to all families and staff.


For over four decades, PIC has maintained the highest levels of programming, responded to the needs of the community, valued the dedication of our teachers, and supported young families. The University of Pennsylvania opened the Parent Infant Center (PIC) in 1978 to serve infants and toddlers who were too young for its campus preschool program. A year later, when the University decided to close PIC, parents incorporated the center as an independent, nonprofit organization. Housed on the grounds of the former Episcopal Divinity School of Philadelphia, we have been at our present location since 1986.
