For Early Childhood Education

Our Exceptional Team

In 2018, The Malvern School® celebrated 20 years of excellence in early childhood education. Our Directors, Coordinators, teachers and staff are the foundation of our strong commitment to educating the children in our schools. They uphold our core values each day. They guide our mission inside and outside the classroom. And they motivate each other to carry on our vision for the future. Each day our exceptional team contributes to our success as an organization.

Many of our team members have been with The Malvern School for more than a decade; some have been with us for more than 15 years, and we even have some that started with us 20 years ago. It is this exceptional team that leads by example and mentors other Directors, teachers and Coordinators. They spread positivity in our schools and the Executive Office each day with the same enthusiasm as they did a decade ago. They have dedicated their careers and lives to put the children first and to be a part of the best early childhood education program in the region. Today, and every day, we celebrate them. Our Exceptional Team.
