Established in 1990 in the former H.K. Boyer Elementary School, Play and Learn Collegeville is a staple in the community. Our center has 3 developmentally-appropriate play areas for the children, a paved area for riding toys and a generous grassy area where kids can run and play games. Inside 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 Collegeville 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.
Play and Learn Collegeville offers a full-day Kindergarten licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. A small class size allows for children to spend more one on one time with the teacher and develop the appropriate skills necessary for their transition to public or private elementary school.
You can have confidence that your child is well supervised and learning in our K-Plus Program, developed to accommodate children who attend a public or private half-day kindergarten program. Play and Learn Collegeville provides busing to and from Arrowhead Elementary School.
In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), Play and Learn Collegeville offers the Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program, a free pre-k program for eligible 3 and 4 year olds in Pennsylvania. Play and Learn Collegeville is one of only a few early education centers in Montgomery County to offer this quality education program for families.
Play and Learn Collegeville 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, Monica Jenkinson:
I joined Play and Learn in June 2019. As a director with over 15 years’ experience, I am excited to work in a school and a community where early childhood education is so important. Prior to coming to Play and Learn, I was the Children’s Program Manager at Laurel House, a domestic violence agency where I won a Commendation Award for exceptional performance from the District Attorney of Montgomery County. I am very passionate about children’s well being. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood from Chestnut Hill College.
My son and I live in Methacton School District where he attends school. As a pastime, I enjoy crocheting and taking my dog to the dog park. I absolutely love this community and I’m excited to introduce myself to more people.
