“At A Child's Place, we cultivate the potential within each child, as he grows from infant to toddler to young child. We understand that each child is naturally curious to learn more about the world.  With that in mind, our teachers take their job of creating programs and lessons that foster children’s natural curiosity very seriously.  Students in our diverse classrooms learn at a young age to accept people for who they are and embrace their differences.  Parents can feel assured that our Chester County childcare early learning program, teaches children to enjoy academics, and prepare for a lifelong love of learning.”

ACPEC Philosophy

“We believe that children learn and grow when they are provided with a caring and accepting environment. Our goal is to help children develop habits of observation, questioning, and listening. In order to develop a positive self-image, we believe children should be free to express their individuality. We teach the children that every choice has a consequence so that hopefully they will make positive choices. We encourage children to use their intellectual and creative abilities. We hope that they will develop friendships as they learn the “golden rule” – to treat others as they would like to be treated. It is our greatest wish for the children in our program to become the best they can be both now and in the future.”
