Child day care under Jewish auspices has been provided in Philadelphia for over a century, making Philadelphia a pioneer in this field among American Jewish communities. This summary history traces significant factors in the growth and development of this communal service, highlighting the experiences of Federation Day Care Services (FDCS), the agency designated by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia (formerly the Federation of Jewish Agencies) as the primary federation agency charged with providing child day care for the Jewish community.
