About Our Center

Play & Learn Lansdale opened in January 2002. The building was previously a daycare center in the 80’s-90’s and before that a school for children who were visually and hearing impaired. It originally opened in the early 1900’s as a primary school building for all ages K-12.

Lansdale & The Community

For the past 20 years, Lansdale Play & Learn has been involved in our local community through community fundraisers that support our local Manna food bank, as well as participation in the Mardi Gras parade, First Friday events, yard sales, Halloween nights, and Lansdale days. We are proud to be a high-quality center right in the neighborhood supporting families through flexible care, scholarships, and more.  Additionally, we work with North Penn School District to bus from our local elementary school.

Message from the 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, served as the Director at our Blue Bell location for a short time, and was thrilled to return to Lansdale when the Director position became available. I am privileged to work with a 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 bachelor’s degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Millersville University and I have a PA Instructional I Teaching Certificate.
