Center Curriculum

Our curriculum is a combination of the Department of Human Services Creative Hands-on Learn Through Play (NAEYC: National Association for the Education of Young Children) approach and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Early Childhood Education and Pre-K curriculum. This combination offers your child aspects of both programs which the center believes offers the most comprehensive Early Childhood Education experience.

Educational Philosophy

Holy Family Child Care was founded on the philosophy that each child is unique, created by God and deserving to be treated as the gift from God that said child truly is. Our staff offers a hands-on, learn through play approach to Early Childhood Education which offers your child the opportunity to grow, fosters creativity, and encourages them to become critical thinkers. Holy Family Child Care also recognizes that a child’s parents are truly their first and most important teacher. Therefore, all parents will be treated with respect and will be encouraged to be an active part of the childcare team.
