For Early Childhood Education

The Malvern School of Frazer

Our Frazer preschool is conveniently located right on Lancaster Avenue (Business 30) in the heart of town. At The Malvern School of Frazer, we are particularly proud of our developmentally appropriate, NAEYC accredited program, as well as our qualified teaching staff who ensure that your child is receiving the most nurturing educational program possible. We are also proud of the consistent excellence that has earned us multiple years of Platinum Performance recognition. Our early childhood education programs for children ages 6 weeks through 8 years old offer much more than traditional Frazer daycare and childcare options. We look forward to helping your child prepare for the future, and we encourage you to schedule a tour of our Frazer preschool!
