Welcome to Play & Learn

Beth Higgins

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 involvement in the Let’s Move initiative, Play and Learn Ardmore provides enrichment gym and music programs as part of the curriculum.  Outside specialists in sports and music join us twice a month and always bring a smile to the children’s faces.  In addition, supplemental activity and learning programs are offered to families throughout the year.

For your convenience, Play and Learn Ardmore offers a low-cost lunch program. Diapers and wipes are also available to help make your daily routine easier. These optional programs may be perfect to ease your busy schedule.

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 & 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 attend 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.
