There are many family friendly neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Considering you work in Cherry Hill, and as James stated, you may want to be close to the bridge. This is all a matter of your convenience.

There are so many great areas that are family friendly but contrary to what most people think, Realtors are not allowed to give their opinions on what would be considered to be "best," "good," "safe."
What I tell my clients is to do their homework by driving by areas they are interested in at various times and days just to check out the scene. I also tell them to check with the local police district to check out the crime statistics.
I would have to know more about what you are looking for to determine which areas you could investigate. A good realtor is also a good listener, problem solver and an expert negotiator.
Most places in Philadelphia are close to all major highways and bridges.
My professional advice to you would be if you are seriously looking to find a place, first secure a buyer agent who will work in your best interests and who will answer all of your questions. If you are not familiar with what buyer agency is or why it is in your best interest to hire one, you can learn more about it on my site http://www.reneeporsia.com. I have video as well as a written blog that you will find very helpful.
If you do not know a buyer agent, you could find one here on Trulia by reading the answers to your question and checking out their websites.
I do provide a full free buyer counseling session to all of my buyer clients.
