Philadelphia Preschool & Private School Open Houses | Spring 2022

The Philly Family Community knows best! Scroll and click through our Education Partners’ Stories and Directory below to learn about the amazing independent schools, preschools, and enrichment programs that serve our area.


And don’t miss our Preschool & Private School Open House Listings! We encourage you to visit each school you’re considering with a virtual or in person open house because there’s nothing quite like a personal tour to get to know a school’s community when you’re searching for the right fit. We’re pretty sure by the time you reach the end you’ll have some great contenders for your student in mind. (Be sure to check back each week, we’ll be adding Education Partners’ Open House and Admissions Event dates as they join!)

Our Interactive Independent Schools & Preschools Map features the Education Partners our team has worked with since 2013 to bring you the most comprehensive resource to help you focus your school search.
