About our Medical Day Care
Since 2006, children with medical needs have been thriving and achieving their personal potential at Frankie's World Medical Day Care Center. We are a Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Center or PPECC, licensed by the Pennsylvania Health Department. We are centrally located in Philadelphia's Northern Liberties neighborhood, close to three major children's hospitals, and easily accessible by Philadelphia area families. Our center accepts most major health insurance providers which cover the cost of care.
We believe children with medical needs can achieve much more when given the opportunity to make friends and learn about the world around them. Our pioneering mix of quality nursing care and preschool education is on display every day in our open, engaging classrooms. We are staffed by special needs educators and experienced pediatric nurses. Our Medical Services include:
Premature & High-Risk infant care.
Gastrointestinal, orthopedic, genetic or congenital disorders.
Tracheotomy and Ventilator Care.
Assistance with eating and gastric tube care.
Seizure disorder monitoring.
At the Day Care Center we offer:
Through the CBS Food Program, we offer breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.
Our case management team help families navigate the complexities of Medicaid eligibility; insurance verification, and submission of required paperwork, leaving you stress-free.
One Healthcare professional for every 3 children.

What if my insurance won’t cover the cost?
Frankie’s World will work with your physician and insurance company to cover the cost of care. However, in some cases children with special needs do not meet the standard of necessity set by insurance companies. Regardless, you may still want your child to be enrolled at Frankie’s World for the high quality of care and preschool education that we provide. For such cases, we offer a private pay option.
