Meet Our Directors

Megan Larson, Executive Director

Megan Larson is Executive Director at The Malvern School of Collegeville. With years of experience as a preschool teacher, kindergarten teacher and program director, she is a seasoned educator who is dedicated to each child’s learning and growth. Fun fact: earlier in her career, Megan taught in a building that was originally her grandmother’s elementary school!

Growing up, Megan wanted to be a special education teacher for children with mental and physical disabilities. She went on to earn a degree in sociology from Kutztown University and holds numerous early childhood education certifications.

In her free time, Megan enjoys traveling, hiking, going to the beach and DIY crafting. Her husband is also an educator and they share a great interest in educating youth. Her favorite children’s book is “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.

Tanya Mattar, Director of Education

Tanya Mattar is the Director of Education at The Malvern School of Collegeville. Tanya joined The Malvern School team in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. She has more than 20 years of experience with 10 of those years at The Malvern School.

One of Tanya’s proudest moments of her career was her promotion to Director of Education. She loves that The Malvern School structures their curriculum to allow for teachers to have their own creative independence when developing lesson plans. She also really enjoys the connections with families.

During her free time, Tanya enjoys spending time with her family on outings and at special events. When she was young, she wanted to be a Police Officer because she wanted to help people. She did discover that teaching and making connections with children and families is very similar. Her favorite children’s book is “Good Night Moon” by Margaret Wise Brown.

What Collegeville Parents Are Saying

Collegeville, PA
We’ve had a positive experience at the Malvern School, the teachers & Directors are caring, and we feel comfortable entrusting them with the care of our children (we have two currently in the school). They have a good curriculum and do a lot to help children with their development. The summer camp program has a lot of fun activities, swim days, field trips, and I would highly recommend!

Norristown, PA
Friendly and caring!

Eagleville, PA
We love the daycare and all the teachers. If possible please can we have an option for opting into the breakfast or at least lunch ? Wednesday pizza day is an amazing break for the parents and fun for kids. Hopefully in the future the facility could offer the options to opt into meals or bring your own and sometimes meals.
