The Play & Learn Community

Play and Learn is proud to be an active member of the Montgomery County and Southeastern Pennsylvania communities. From special community events like our annual “Hauntless House” in October to regular clothing, toy and food drives, Play and Learn is dedicated to making our community a better place to live, play and learn.

Within Play and Learn’s child care network, we provide management services to two Montessori Children’s House locations in Blue Bell and Horsham. Montessori schools represent many cultural, economic and educational backgrounds. Play and Learn also provides management services to Jenkintown Day Nursery, which has provided early childhood education since 1903.  The common element among our families is their interest in providing their children with a unique and exceptional education.
