Play and Learn School


Play and Learn School was founded by Maureen Hoffman in 1976 with a small class of children.  The first sessions were held in a brownstone on the corner of Duncan and Bergen Avenues in Jersey City, New Jersey.


The program quickly grew beyond the capacity of the facility.  An additional center was opened in 1982 at the First Baptist Church on the corner of Kennedy Boulevard and Fairmount Avenue. In the Fall of 2013, the school was moved to a temporary location at 8-10 Clifton Place.


Due to the success of the program and a huge demand for high quality education, Play and Learn 2 was opened with an additional three classrooms.  Play and Learn School is currently located on Tuers Avenue along with the elementary school, Primary Prep.


Over the years, Play and Learn School has continued to provide quality preschool education.
