Established in 2003 in the St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Play and Learn Ardmore expanded the services that were already being offered at the Bryn Mawr location, giving Main Line families access to more quality early education. Our spacious, shaded playgrounds have separate areas for younger and older children and a paved surface for riding toys. Indoors you’ll find bright cheerful classrooms for learning centers and play.
As part of our healthy living standards and alignment with the Let’s Move initiative, the Ardmore Center provides enrichment gym classes to our younger children and soccer classes to our older children. In addition to fitness classes, outside experts in music (for our younger children), Spanish and theater (for our older children) join us bi-weekly throughout the school year to provide more specialized instruction in those areas. These specialists always bring a smile to children’s faces.
For your convenience, Play and Learn Ardmore offers a low-cost lunch program. Play and Learn Ardmore also accepts subsidized payment from Child Care Information Services (CCIS) and offers scholarship assistance through the Granny Scholarship Fund.
Our staff looks forward to providing your child with a supportive and nurturing environment and the best in quality child care and early education.
A message from the Center Director, Beth Higgins:
I have been with Play and Learn since 1996, first as a Director at the Chester Heights Center for 7 years. After moving on from Chester Heights, I enjoyed the experiences of opening the Gerstadt Center, working as the Enrollment Coordinator at the Administrative Office, and working as Director of the Spring House location. I have enjoyed all my experiences with Play and Learn. Now I look forward to all of the wonderful experiences every day at Play and Learn Ardmore.
I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from West Chester University. I’m married with two children, Colin and Grace, both of whom attended Play and Learn. I enjoy going to the mountains in the winter and the Jersey shore in the summer with my family. I am committed to providing a quality education in a safe and loving environment. I love working with children and look forward to working with your family.
