Where friendships bloom, individuality is celebrated, and potential is achieved in a supportive learning community.
Preschoolers on the Main Line have been discovering the joy of learning at the Weekday School since it was founded in 1963. Because preschool-age children learn best by engaging with their environment through play-based activities and hands-on lessons, the Weekday School at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church provides an interactive, child-based educational model. Learning is accomplished through carefully-planned, fun-filled activities each designed with specific educational goals in mind.
The Weekday School offers 2-day, 3-day and 5-day programs for children ages 2 years and seven months to 5 years old. The curriculum is theme-based, providing children with opportunities to explore a wide variety of topics while developing a love of learning and the skill set necessary for success in their academic careers. Throughout the day, the children’s activities are carefully designed to help them to grow physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually.
