For Early Childhood Education

The Malvern School of Glen Mills

Our preschool is located in picturesque Glen Mills, and we share our campus with Malvern Day Camp on 15 beautiful acres. We have been serving Glen Mills and the surrounding area since 1999. We are proud to have been the first Malvern School to receive NAEYC Accreditation, which ensures the highest quality education and care are provided for your young child. We pride ourselves on implementing a curriculum that is designed to meet your child’s individual needs as well as meeting both NAEYC Best Practices and Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards. Many of our highly qualified teachers and assistant teachers have been with us for more than five years. Our early childhood education programs for children ages 6 weeks through 8 years old offer much more than traditional Glen Mills 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 Glen Mills preschool!

What Parents are saying:

I have three young children who all attend and love arriving at school each morning… Each day, I get a personalized email report from the teachers that my husband and I use to have discussions at dinner and learn more about their days… The attention and love that they receive each day does not go unnoticed. We love the directors and staff!

—Sally C., Glen Mills
