Children First’s Report Series on COVID’s Impact on Children – READ THE COUNTY REPORTS HERE


More than half a million children attend public schools in southeastern Pennsylvania.  Children First works to ensure that our region’s children arrive at school ready to learn, and attend schools that have the resources needed to provide a high quality education.

Eso solo se puede lograr mediante:

  • financiación equitativa y adecuada
  • igualdad de oportunidades

Cuanto mejores sean nuestras escuelas, más brillante será el futuro para nuestros niños y nuestra región.


Children First participates in three powerful education coalitions to advance our work:

Trabajo de las escuelas de PA

PA Schools Work fights for equitable, adequate funding necessary to support educational excellence. Investing in public education excellence is the path to thriving communities, a stable economy and successful students.


Greater Philadelphia Extracurricular Collaborative (GPEC)

GPEC improves the quality and reach of out-of-school time and extracurricular programs in the Greater Philadelphia region so children reap benefits across every part of their lives.
