Grow Up Great

Grow Up Great introduces kids to the vibrant world of jazz and musical theater, where kids learn to sing, dance, and use their imaginations during our fun, hour-filled monthly interactive adventure! And best of all, IT'S FREE!

The Kimmel Center is the recipient of funding through PNC Grow Up Great, a nationally recognized 15-year initiative to help prepare children from birth to age five for success in school and life.

A NEW Free Grow Up Great Virtual Field Trip featuring a Grow Up Great performance will be available for families, as well as schools and students this April.

Teachers and Educators: To register for this virtual field trip, click here.

Parents: Check back for more information.

The Kimmel Center’s PNC Grow up Great concerts were selected as Best Free Family Programming in 2019's Philadelphia Family Magazine LOVE Awards.
