Sharing our Expertise–What High-Quality Looks, Sounds, and Feels Like

Literacy in the Digital Age, S.T.E.M. in the School-Age Classroom, and Iron Triangle-ECE Business Management are among the workshops our PQAS-certified staff offer.  Teachers and administrators share expertise gained at Children’s Village.

In fact, Children’s Village is poised to launch Philadelphia’s first adult Learning Lab located on-site at a nationally accredited STAR4 early education program serving at-risk childen. More to come on that exciting program!

Our Impact on Practice-Feedback from Workshop Participants

  • Course: Iron Triangle (part of the Business Management Workshops for Directors)  Presenter: Mary Graham, Executive Director, Children’s Village
    A Director reported that she has made changes to her parent fee agreement, communicated those changes, and implemented the new agreement policies, resulting in the reduction from $7,200 to $700 of monies owed to two programs. Asked if her actions were a direct result of the Business Management Workshops she attended at Children’s Village, she said “yes.” She explained that she had known for years that she was not fully implementing CCIS regulations. Hearing from Mary Graham, the Executive Director of a high-quality program also serving low-income families, resonated with her and inspired the workshop participant to take action.
