…I wanted a place where they could feel as loved as they are at home. Play And Learn Nursery School is that kind of place.A Loving Parent

Play and Learn Nursery School is a preschool for ages 2½ through 5 years. Play and Learn is fully licensed by the Ohio Department of Human Services. The school was established in 1971 and is housed within Dover Congregational Church at 2239 Dover Center Road in Westlake.

The school is ably staffed by licensed, experienced teachers. Our student-teacher ratio is from six to one, to eight to one, enabling the children to enjoy the quality attention and care they need to develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.

Five separate programs have been tailored to meet the needs of each age group. There is an optional Kindergarten Prep class for our kindergarten-bound children as well. Our pre-kindergarten classes come highly recommended by a number of local officials.


Costs of Play and Learn are tailored to several plans to accommodate the budgets of families. Parents can pay by the month, the semester or by the year. A $65.00 non-refundable fee must accompany registration forms to secure a child’s place on the roster.
