Words at Play Vocabulary Initiative

Words at Play Vocabulary Initiative

Words at Play Vocabulary Initiative is a community-wide, grant-funded initiative taking place at Cecil B. Moore and Widener libraries, both located in North Philadelphia, west of Broad Street. The grant’s focus is families with children ages birth to 5 years. Through playing, singing, and reading at “Play Parties”, families will discover new ideas to help strengthen their child’s vocabulary while playing with their children. Five organizations are working collaboratively to offer this initiative: the Free Library of Philadelphia, The Franklin Institute, the Kimmel Center, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Philadelphia Zoo. PNC Grow Up Great® and PNC Crezca con Éxito form a $350 million, multi-year, English/Spanish initiative to help prepare children — particularly underserved children — from birth to age 5 for success in school and life. Grow Up Great was founded in 2004 by The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.
