Welcome to Play & Learn Blue Bell!

Our newly renovated Blue Bell location is open and enrolling!

Established in 1985 in the historic “Square Shadows” building, Play and Learn Blue Bell is set back from the road on private, wooded grounds. Our spacious, shaded playgrounds have separate areas for younger and older children, playing fields for sports and games, and paved surfaces 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 Blue Bell 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 Blue Bell offers a low-cost lunch program. Play and Learn Blue Bell 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 our Center Director, Jackie McAteer:

I have been with Play & Learn since 2018. I have loved the supportive and nurturing environment that Play & Learn offers to both children and staff. I started out as the Assistant Director at the Lansdale location and am very excited to have my own center, and my own wonderful team of dedicated teachers. Prior to working as an administrator for Play & Learn I taught Kindergarten Enrichment, fourth grade, and preschool in an early intervention classroom. I received my B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Millersville University.

My husband and I have 3 boys. We enjoy being outdoors, watching our oldest son play hockey, and going on walks together as a family with our dog Zelda. I am very excited to provide quality care here at Play & Learn Blue Bell. As both an educator and a mom I’m committed to providing safe and fun learning opportunities for all our children.
