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.

Ms. Brittany believes that learning should be through play, reading, writing, and asking lots of questions! She believes that peaceful and positive transitions occur when children are given a verbal cue. Ms. Brittany feels that this allows the child to understand that there will be a transition coming and helps them look forward to another fun activity! Some of Ms. Brittany's favorite things to do during her free time is to go on walks, organize, decorate, and shop!
