The Malvern School Opens in Marlton, New Jersey

Executive Director, Emily Olivares (Center) and her Teacher Team welcomed students at the brand new school in Marlton

The region’s largest private preschool welcomes children ages six weeks to eight years at its newest location

MARLTON, N.J. – June 4, 2018 – Today marks the first day of school at the newest location of The Malvern School – the region’s largest privately owned preschool – in Marlton, New Jersey. Conveniently located in The View of Marlton Shopping Complex at 1021 Route 73, the school welcomes students ages six weeks to eight years old to its early childhood education programs designed to nurture, engage and develop the whole child.

“We’re so excited to bring new options for early childhood education to the Marlton community,” says Emily Olivares, Executive Director of The Malvern School of Marlton. “Much different than day care or child care, our programs focus on the physical, emotional, cognitive and social growth of our young friends to help them reach their full potential – starting at an early age. Most importantly, The Malvern School is a place where children will learn and feel loved.”

Brought to life by exceptional, college-degreed teachers, The Malvern School’s innovative curriculum – 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 – includes character and language development, literacy, self-help skills, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and more.

The brand-new facility 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.

“Over the past 20 years, The Malvern School has been able to have such a positive impact on the areas we serve because of the emphasis we place on providing value to the local community – whether that’s through high-quality education, career opportunities or giving back beyond our four walls,” says Kristen Waterfield, President & Co-Founder of The Malvern School. “We’re excited to be bringing ‘The Malvern Way’ to Marlton and to be welcoming new friends, parents and teachers to our family!”

The Malvern School is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, marking two decades since its first schools opened in Malvern, Pennsylvania, raising the bar for early childhood education.
