Penn Children's Center Fall Enrollment
Applications are being accepted for the Penn Children's Center's limited fall enrollment, as well as the expanded enrollment in 2001.
Penn Children's Center (PCC), the University's child care program, serves children ages 12 weeks through 5 years. The program features weekly themes and a diverse, multicultural curriculum based on the principles of early childhood education. PCC offers a nurturing infant program, well-equipped classrooms with computers, and a multi-purpose indoor-gym room. Penn requires the teaching staff to be highly trained; PCC teachers hold degrees in early childhood education.
In early 2001, the Penn Children's Center will be moving to new, larger quarters in the former GE building now known as The Left Bank. The new location will allow a 27% increase in capacity and will feature a large outdoor playground.
Each year the Penn Children's Center and Division of Human Resources sets aside funds to reduce the cost of the program for qualified Penn staff. Fee assistance applications will also be accepted at this time.
