Established in 1987 in the Hatboro Baptist Church, Play and Learn Hatboro is located in the heart of downtown Hatboro. Our center has 3 developmentally-appropriate play areas for the children. 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 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.
Play and Learn Hatboro 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. Busing to and from Crooked Billet Elementary is available at Hatboro Play and Learn.
In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL), Play and Learn Hatboro offers the Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts program, a free pre-k program for eligible 3 and 4 year olds in Pennsylvania. Play and Learn Hatboro is one of only a few early education centers in Montgomery County to offer this quality education program for families.
For your convenience, Play and Learn Hatboro offers a low-cost lunch program. This optional program may be perfect to ease your busy schedule.
Play and Learn Hatboro 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 Center Director, April Eisenman:
I joined Play and Learn in 2004, teaching in the preschool classroom. Since then, I have taught in pre-kindergarten as well as Kindergarten classrooms and have now taken on the role of Center Director.
I hold a B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Lock Haven University of PA, as well as a Masters of Education from the University of the Cumberlands. I am Pennsylvania State certified in Early Childhood Education as a Reading Specialist.
I live in Warminster with my husband and son who also attends Play and Learn. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
