Learn more about us

Knowledge Tree Child Development Center has been serving Philadelphia families since 2000.  We now have two convenient locations, one in North Philadelphia off Diamond Street close to Temple University's main campus and our second, in West Philadelphia at 60th and Chestnut Streets.


We are proud that many of our staff have been with us since the beginning, as have many of our children.  Both sites are Keystone Stars participants.


Educational excellence, unwavering dedication and outstanding child care. These are the values that Knowledge Tree Child Developmental Center stands for.


Demand for quality child care continues to grow day by day, but all too often, institutions are only able to focus on either allowing the child to enjoy their childhood and develop naturally or forcing the child to focus only on mental development in order to achieve high test scores later on in life.


Knowledge Tree Child Developmental Center is different. Children learn through play, and we promote creative free and structured play as well as school readiness.  Both sites have outside play areas to foster excercise and large muscle movement.


Our goal is to promote every child's development individually using an age-appropriate mix of academic and recreational activities, in a safe and caring envrionment.
