Now enrolling children ages 13 months to 4 years in the Somerton section of Philadelphia, PA.

About Our Center

Opened in 1978, Lassin Early Learning Center offers a mix of independent and organized activities, education, and recreational opportunities. The program provides a multi-cultural curriculum reflecting the composition of the neighborhood, and offers experiences requiring investigation, exploration and discovery.

Embracing hands-on, collaborative, and joyful learning
The Federation Early Learning Centers use The Creative Curriculum®, a comprehensive, research-based, and developmentally appropriate curriculum that follows children’s interests as they work together to explore, investigate, and make discoveries about the world around them and the people, places, and objects that are relevant to their lives.

Programs We Offer 
Lassin Early Learning Center – in the Somerton section of Northeast Philadelphia, PA – offers full time options for toddlers and pre-schoolers and hoping to start an infant program.

A+ Accreditations
We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the gold standard for early childhood programs across the country.

Exceptional Instruction
According to parents, our teachers are warm, patient and loving.  They encourage children to explore, experiment and reach their own conclusions by thinking for themselves.  They create an inclusive, nurturing environment where intellectual curiosity is applauded and children are proud of their accomplishments.  Many have been with us for 10 years.

Lassin’s dynamic and exciting enrichment programs fall into three categories; Enrichment Specialists, Trips & Center Events and Outdoor Fun & Play. Enrichment Specialists frequently visit Lassin to lead various activities, while older children are further engaged with field trips to nearby locations. Center Events are focused on a holiday or celebratory occasion. Outdoor Fun & Play is a critical component of the FELS philosophy, and Lassin offers dedicated outdoor space, with individual age-appropriate playgrounds for toddlers and preschoolers.

Enrichment Specialists

Skilled specialists visit our center to provide engaging activities for all children.  Some of these include music, yoga, gymnastics, languages, and soccer.

Trips & Center Events

Older children visit museums and arboretums, take in theater performances and more.  All children take part in special events that are brought to our center.
