Something To Grow On (STGO) is an incorporated childcare facility located in West Philadelphia. We have been in operation since 1994. STGO seeks to prepare children ages 2.5 years to five years by fostering an environment of a love of learning via hands on experiences. We help to prepare children for the kindergarten and beyond.

STGO helps children in the community to learn the concepts of social/emotional, sensory play, dramatic play, literacy and math skills by providing learning centers. These centers provide opportunities for the children to learn and explore through play. In addition, biannual screenings and observations and assessments are done to alert parents to any developmental delays, if they exist; and partner with them to seek- out supportive services, if needed.

STGO believes that each child is an individual and therefore, their learning environment should meet their individual needs. We are continually looking for ways in which we can help to keep this mission our top priority. Through the help and guidance of staff, parents, and our community stakeholders, we are closer to that realization.
