The program provides enrichment, creative play, and moments of joy for young children throughout the Delaware Valley. A team of Program Administrators provides NO-COST, IN-HOME support for six weeks incorporating organized activities such as arts, crafts, games, journaling, singing, and more for young children ages 6 months to 5 years. In-Home Programs run on weekdays.
