Wonderspring to offer preschool in Havertown
Wonderspring, a nonprofit provider of high-quality early education and out-of-school-time programs, announced that it will be offering services at a new Havertown location in partnership with the former St. Faith Preschool and Kindergarten. The new site, located at 1208 Allston Road in the Brookline section of Havertown, will be known as Wonderspring Havertown.
Currently licensed by the PA Department of Education, Wonderspring Havertown will offer preschool for children ages 3-5 from the hours of 9am-3pm. It will be led by the current Director of St. Faith, Beth Dougherty, who has served at St. Faith for 12 years as both a teacher and Director. The former St. Faith teaching staff is also expected to remain at the school.
Founded in 1964, Wonderspring has served hundreds of children in its many early childhood centers in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties and its multiple school-age sites. Wonderspring’s programs are designed to tap into a child’s natural curiosity through age-appropriate curriculum that encourages growth, exploration and creativity. The organization’s commitment to quality is evidenced by the fact that its centers operate at a PA Keystone STAR 4 level and its school-age programs are nationally recognized by the Council of Accreditation.
According to Dougherty, “St. Faith has been serving the community as a nonprofit organization for over 50 years. The school’s curriculum is selected to foster the love of learning and self-confidence in a nurturing and caring environment.”
“Wonderspring and St. Faith are natural partners,” says Zakiyyah Boone CEO of Wonderspring. “Both have a long history of providing high-quality early education utilizing evidence-based, child-centered curriculum. I am thrilled for the opportunity to partner with the staff of St. Faith to continue to provide these services for children and families in Havertown and the surrounding area.”
Wonderspring Havertown will begin serving children on September 7th. The organization will host an open house at the new location on August 24th from 3-5pm and invites families and their children to tour the facility and meet the staff.
