For over three decades, the Parent-Infant Center has provided high quality child care to the families who live and work in the diverse neighborhoods of West Philadelphia.

Marcella Handy

Assistant Teacher

I enjoy working with infants and young toddlers, watching them grow and seeing them react to different activities in the classroom.


Marcella has been a teacher at PIC for over 10 years. She has a soft spot for the babies and appreciates that PIC encourages her to teach while the children learn through their play

Though there have been many memorable moments during her teaching career, one especially stands out for Marcella. She recalls with amusement the day she was at the sensory table “and a child said ‘Look!’ and then poured water all down my leg.”

Away from PIC, Marcella enjoys baking and spending time playing with her granddaughter who attends PIC's Early Learning Program.
