Meet Our Directors

Cate Dodge, Executive Director

Cate Dodge is the Executive Director at The Malvern School of Horsham. Starting her career in the classroom, Cate has worked in early childhood education since 2004 as the lead teacher in several different classrooms and most recently as our Director of Education at our Upper Gwynedd location. She was promoted to Executive Director in 2024. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Penn State University and a Master’s in Education from Cabrini College. She is also a PA-certified teacher for ages Pre-K through 3rd Grade.

Some of her proudest moments in her career came when she was a Kindergarten teacher. Watching a young child celebrate an achievement each year during graduation is a nice reminder why she pursued a career in early childhood education. It’s those moments that show the positive impact that teachers have on young children. When asked about what she likes most about The Malvern School program – she loves the creative freedom that teachers have to design their own curriculum based on the individual children in each classroom. She enjoys the monthly curriculum themes highlighting the authors and artist of the month and likes how engaged the children are during each activity.

During her free time, Cate enjoys spending time with her family, reading and spending time with friends. Looking to test Cate’s geography knowledge? The next time you see her, ask her what the world capital of Bulgaria is – in fact, she can name all the world capitals. Cate’s favorite children’s book is "Corduroy" by Don Freeman.
