Allegheny General Hospital Center for Children

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! Early education is an exciting time for your child, and we take pride in offering an inspiring environment to learn and grow. Little scientists can experiment and observe in our science station, and the music exploration space encourages creative playtime. The interactive Smart Board fosters an early interest in computer science, and the Growing Readers nook is a cozy spot to curl up with a book. Plus, the age-specific outdoor learning areas and gardening boxes nurture an interest in nature, and the Movement Matters Zone instills healthy habits with dance, yoga, and exercise. Stop in to meet our staff and learn more!
