The education, happiness, and quality care of children are of extreme importance to us.  Our goal is to have a positive influence in the lives of children that will benefit them emotionally, academically, and socially, not only now but for many years to come. Your child is our greatest priority, your priceless treasure, and our future’s most valuable resource.


Founders Sandy Tennant and her husband, Steve, established the Learn And Play After School Program in the Farmington School System in 1996.

With a BS in Elementary Education from the University of Arkansas, Director, Sandy Tennant, taught pre-school through third grade in both public and private schools for many years, the last seven years of which was as a third-grade teacher in Farmington.

Even with a love of classroom teaching, Sandy realized the importance of further developing the After School Program. She decided to devote her time and energy to the program full-time. She believes that her full-time presence has had a positive impact on both the Learn and Play children and their families.

The Tennants have three children and five grandchildren.  Their daughter is a Farmington teacher, and two grandchildren are Farmington students.


The Staff of the After School Program consists of University of Arkansas students. Many of them are majoring in areas where they will be improving the lives of children, such as; Elementary Education, Physical Education, and Speech Pathology.

All of our Staff members have previous experience in caring for different ages of children.

We are especially proud of many of our former staff members who have become full-time teachers, including a few in the Farmington School District.
