The Malvern School of Horsham Recognized Among the Top Early Childhood Education Programs in the U.S.

Leading child care and early learning provider in Ambler earns National NAEYC Accreditation

Less than 10 percent of all child care centers, preschools and kindergartens in the U.S. earn accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), a widely recognized sign of high-quality early childhood education. The Malvern School of Horsham, which was first accredited by NAEYC in 2019, has again been recognized with the distinguished mark of quality, earning national accreditation for the second time. NAEYC is the world’s largest organization working on behalf of young children.

According to the association, “NAEYC Accreditation helps families recognize quality early learning programs and feel comfortable knowing that their children are receiving a high-quality, research-based education that will prepare them for future success.”

“Being one of the top child care and early learning programs in the area – and the nation – goes to show how hard our teachers and staff work every day to put the children first,” says Devin Clinefelter, Director of Education at The Malvern School of Horsham. “Our exceptional team enables us to deliver exceptional early learning experiences that are filled with exploration, fun and, most importantly, love.”

To earn NAEYC Accreditation, The Malvern School of Horsham went through an extensive self-study process, followed by an on-site visit by NAEYC Assessors who evaluated hundreds of criteria pertaining to NAEYC’s research-based program standards. These standards include relationships; curriculum; teaching; assessment of child progress; health; staff competencies, preparation and support; families; community relationships; physical environment; and leadership and management.

NAEYC-Accredited programs are always prepared for unannounced quality-assurance visits during their accreditation term, which lasts for five years.

“NAEYC-Accredited programs have committed to a process that takes time, energy and dedication to complete,” states Alissa Mwenelupembe, NAEYC’s Senior Director of Early Learning Program Accreditation. “The Malvern School of Horsham has demonstrated their commitment to young children and their families.”
