Second Phase of Access Centers Opens: The City today opened the second phase of City Access Centers, more than doubling the number of sites open this fall to 77. Access Centers are supervised, connected spaces where students in grades K-6 can connect to their school’s virtual learning while school buildings are closed.
The first phase of 31 Access Centers opened on September 8. The second phase of 46 additional Access Centers includes Parks & Recreation locations, Free Library branches, and the Office of Children and Families’ Out-of-School Time network sites. The new sites opening today will broaden the reach to more families in neighborhoods across the city.
Pre-registration for Access Centers is required and still available for families. Priority is given to children of caregivers who need to work outside the home and cannot provide or afford supervision.
Families can visit phila.gov/accesscenters to view all the sites and find eligibility information. Eligible families can fill out the online interest form to start the registration process. Those who need help filling out the form can call (215) 709-5366, Monday–Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Space is limited and filling out the interest form is the first step for registration, but does not guarantee placement in an Access Center.
