After Submitting an Application

Confirmation email
You will be sent an email within two weeks of our receiving and processing your application and application fee. If you do not receive an email please get in touch with the Enrollment Office by phone at 215-222-5480 or send an email to

Schedule a Virtual Tour
Once you have submitted your application, you can schedule a virtual tour of the Center. Please note that your application status is pending until you tour PIC. Once you have taken a tour, you will be placed on our waiting list.

Waiting list
A family's wait for enrollment may vary. We try to keep classrooms full while maintaining a balance of age and gender. Enrollment decisions are primarily driven by the growth and development of currently enrolled children who become ready to move to new classrooms.

The age of a child, number of days a family needs care, and when a child is ready to start may impact the availability of an opening at our Center. Currently enrolled families are given priority enrollment.

After submitting your application for enrollment:

  • Check in with us every two months to express your continued interest in enrollment and to remain active on our waiting list.
  • Please let us know if you make other child care arrangements so we have an accurate number of families who are waiting for enrollment.

Any additional questions may be answered on our Enrollment FAQ page.
