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!

News From Frankie's World

LOOK WHO'S TURNING 10! It's been 10 years since Frankie's World opened its doors in 2006. To celebrate, we're inviting YOU to join us for a free party - with cheese steaks, pizza, water ice, pretzels, entertainment, special guests, family and friends. It will be held at our center at 1011 Poplar Street from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, September 10th. We will have tours of our preschool classrooms, and a chance to see where our outdoor playground will be built. This is a free event, courtesy of our title sponsor, Health Partners Plans, and others. Ticket information coming soon!

FLOWER MARKET: On May 4-5, Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square was transformed into a French Flower Market to raise money for Frankie's World and 3 other children's charities - come take a look!
