Welcome to Frankie's World!

Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Frankie's World is the area's only non-profit medical day care center for children with special healthcare needs. We welcome children ages birth through 12 who need skilled nursing care for medical reasons.

Named for a special girl in Philadelphia who touched many lives, Frankie's World is an exciting place, where kids can be kids! We have a large play area, and we are staffed by special needs educators and experienced pediatric nurses. There is no charge to parents – costs are completely covered through medical insurance and donations. Please contact us for more information or to arrange a tour!
