Welcome to CHS–
Take a Look

We plan to initially open six Early Childhood Education Centers in Pennsylvania. CHS Hershey is preparing to open and CHS Harrisburg will open in 2024.  Each location will have stimulating spaces encouraging hands-on play and exploration in a nurturing, home-like environment.

Early Learning Program

Our program focuses on the whole child. It is based on leading principles in education and our 113 years of experience at Milton Hershey School. A CHS education in early childhood ensures children have the knowledge, skills, and values they need to grow into their best selves.
