Snow Day Child Care

Snow Day Child Care provides all-day care at the Penn Children's Center for children of benefit-eligible Penn faculty and staff members when the University is open, but Philadelphia public schools are closed due to inclement weather. Children ages 12 weeks to 12 years are eligible for the program, whether they attend a Philadelphia School District school or not. 

  • Between December 4, 2023, and March 29, 2024; weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Space is limited daily and care requests are met on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drop-in care through this program is highly subsidized. The cost for eligible employees is $15 per day, per child.  Pre-registration is required through the Penn Children's Center website.
