Angela Bruno, Owner
The Kids' Clubhouse of the Main Line was founded by Angela Bruno, a local mom. After living in a few different states, she returned to PA and was shocked to find that the Main Line didn't have a drop-in daycare.
With the support of her husband, family, and friends, she decided to build the first drop-in daycare for the Main Line. Angela is blessed to be the mother of 3 girls- Avery, Evie, and Nora, and also to have a loving a supportive husband, AJ. She enjoys spending time with family, finding unique and delicious places to eat, and reading a good book.
