MARLTON, N.J. – On Tuesday, Jan. 22, The Malvern School of Marlton gathered community leaders and residents for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate its official grand opening in The View of Marlton Shopping Complex at 1021 Route 73. Special guests in attendance included Evesham Mayor Jaclyn Veasy, Deputy Mayor Heather Cooper, Councilman Bob DiEnna, South Jersey Chamber of Commerce Membership Director Lisa Hurd and Malvern School President and Co-Founder Kristen M. Waterfield.

The year-round private preschool, which opened its doors to students ages six weeks to eight years over the summer, also marked its debut in Evesham Township with a donation to the Food Bank of South Jersey. Lisa Sherwin, the Food Bank’s Strategic Partnerships & Special Events Manager, was on hand to accept the gift.

“Being involved in – and giving back to – the local community is a big part of The Malvern Way,” says Waterfield, who cut the ceremonial ribbon. “It’s a model for civility that we set for our students, and it’s representative of the way our schools are designed to add value to the community on several fronts. This includes providing exceptionally high quality early childhood education that enables children to reach their highest potential, bringing rewarding job opportunities for degreed teachers, and, of course, being a neighbor who helps those in need.”

With an existing school in Medford, The Malvern School’s Marlton location is the second Malvern School in Burlington County. It is the 26th Malvern School location in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Additionally, as a special welcome, students and teachers were presented with a collaborative art project at the ceremony that was created by fellow students at all 25 other Malvern School locations.

“As we kick off the year and celebrate new beginnings, we’re excited to start a new chapter by expanding the options for early childhood education in Marlton,” says Emily Olivares, Executive Director of The Malvern School of Marlton. “Refined over two decades and designed to meet or exceed the standards established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children – the nation’s largest early childhood accrediting organization – The Malvern School’s curriculum has raised the bar in the industry, while ensuring children learn and feel loved.”

The school’s programming includes character and language development, literacy, self-help skills, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and more.

The Malvern School of Marlton includes nine fully equipped classrooms, as well as two custom-designed specialty rooms where children have access to hands-on learning stations that focus on sensory experiences, the arts, reading, manipulative play and dramatic play. The grounds also feature three state-of-the-art, age-appropriate playgrounds for daily outdoor play.
