Welcome to Wetherill!


Welcome to The Wetherill School! Our warm and nurturing early childhood and kindergarten environments have been going strong for almost four decades. The Wetherill founders’ belief in incorporating the best practices of the research and discoveries of several early childhood educators and philosophers into a rich, diverse, creative curriculum that educates the whole child—cognitively, socially and emotionally, and physically—has been upheld since 1976.

Our state certified teachers welcome children in this first school experience and help them explore their world. Wetherill children learn through creative play using hands-on manipulative materials while learning to express themselves through many different media. Our teachers are masters of honoring children’s sense of wonder and guiding them toward self-discovery. Our secluded, peaceful location on a vast wooded property in Gladwyne provides many opportunities for outdoor exploration as well. Please explore our website to learn more about our philosophy and curriculum and contact us to arrange a visit. In the meantime take a peek at a day at school here.
