Meet Our Directors

Stephanie Pellicione, Director of Education

Stephanie Pellicione is the Director of Education at The Malvern School of Freehold. Stephanie joined The Malvern School team in 2018 as a Preschool Teacher and after leaving for a bit to teach Kindergarten at a private school, she returned in 2023 as the Director of Education. She has a dual bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Spanish and a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction.

One of Stephanie’s proudest moments of her career was returning to The Malvern School as the Director of Education. She loves that she can support all the teachers and help with classroom management. She loves that The Malvern School curriculum provides teachers with the opportunity to be creative and develop their own lesson plans. She also really enjoys the collaboration between teachers and other school Directors.

During her free time, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband, their young son and their puppy, “Moo.” They love to eat out and try new things, travel and relax by watching movies. A fun fact about Stephanie is that she studied abroad during her Junior year in college and spent four months in Seville, Spain. She traveled Europe visiting Paris, Morocco, England, Ireland and Italy—Talk about an adventure! Her favorite children’s book is “Good Night, Little Rabbit” by J.P. Miller.

Caitlin Hart, Assistant Director

Caitlin Hart is the Assistant Director at The Malvern School of Freehold. Caitlin holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Georgian Court University and extensive experience in the field of education, holding positions at private preschools and charter schools prior to joining the team.

Caitlin’s proudest moment of her career has been experiencing The Malvern School’s Pre-K graduation ceremonies. Seeing the look on their faces when receiving their diploma was priceless, Caitlin states, and being apart of their lives to lay their foundation for the future is truly incredible! What sets The Malvern School apart, Caitlin believes, is the structure and support the Directors receive. This allows Directors to focus on the experience and success at each school, always putting the children first.

In her free time, Caitlin enjoys spending time at the local race track, reading books, and crocheting. When she was younger, Caitlin loved history and wanted to be a paleontologist before one of her teachers inspired her to change her mind. Caitlin’s favorite children’s book is “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff.

Freehold, NJ
Love the care and personal attention given to our kids.

Howell, NJ
The Directors have changed the school for the better. We have been a family for years and by far what Cait and Stephanie have done has been the best it's ever been. Their new hire in PreK has so much energy and enthusiasm it's a great thing to see!! It's been a rough few years but Summer camp and the school year has so far been amazing and I can't wait to see what is yet to come!
