Registration Information

If you are interested in enrolling for any of our groups, you can access a registration request form at: After you complete the on-line form, we will contact you within 72 hours to let you know if there is space available in the class.


Select a group according to your child’s age as of 6/15/14. Group ages are approximate, so if you have questions about which group would be the best fit for your child’s age, please feel free to call us at 215-829-5555 or email us at


Payment for the session is required in order for us to confirm your enrollment. We regret that we cannot reserve space in a group without payment. Payment can be made with a check made payable to Pennsylvania Hospital. You can deliver or mail your check to our office: Room 350, Child and Parent Center, Hall-Mercer Building, Pennsylvania Hospital, 245 South 8th St., Phila PA 19106. Once groups have started, all fees are non-refundable.


Please request your registration as soon as possible! Groups fill up quickly, and registrations will be processed in the order that they are received.


The charge for twins older than 8 months is one and one-half times the program fee. For twins younger than 8 months, there is no additional fee.


If you have any questions, especially questions about choosing the best group for your child's age, please feel free to call us at 215-829-5555 or email us at


Families currently enrolled in the Spring Session will be given priority enrollment, as long as their registrations are received by our re-enrollment deadline. After that deadline, spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.


We will contact all families by phone/email to confirm registration and group placements. Enrollment is limited to 10-12 families per group in order to provide a high-quality program in a relaxed, child-safe environment. If we do not have a group opening available, we will contact you and your check will be returned. We will definitely let you know if an opening becomes available!


If you cannot participate in the current session, but would like to be notified when new groups are offered, just email us and we will be sure to include you on our electronic mailing list.


If you don’t see a class offered at your preferred day/time, feel free to drop us an email! We are happy to start new groups whenever possible.


We look forward to celebrating summer with you and your child at the Hall-Mercer Child & Parent Center!
