For more than 40 years, Beginnings has cared for
and educated the children of Philadelphia.


Beginnings Learning Center provides a loving, caring environment where children learn through play, skills that will be important all through their lives.

Social and emotional development is as important as academic achievement.  Activities geared to each age group are offered to enhance this natural growth.  Children are encouraged to make appropriate decisions, exercise independence and resolve conflicts under the guidance of highly qualified teachers who know when to step in and assist the children.

Beginnings Learning Center occupies three buildings, all located on the 600 block of S. 10th Street.  Baby Beginnings and Beginnings Nursery are located at 618-620 S. 10th Street, while Beginnings Preschool is located a few doors away at 626 S 10th Street.

The faculty at Beginnings are highly qualified.  All teachers have had previous child care experience and are required to obtain professional training and ongoing professional development throughout the year.  Many of our teachers are certified by the State of PA to be Private School Teachers. 

Beginnings is licensed by the City of Philadelphia as a Child-Care Center, and by the State of Pennsylvania as a Private Academic School and Kindergarten.
