About The Malvern School of Lionville

The Malvern School’s preschool in Lionville is conveniently located on Ruark Road off of Eagleview Boulevard in Exton. We have been a member of the Lionville/Exton community since 2001 and a NAEYC Accredited school since 2010. Our dedicated staff is enthusiastic and friendly, many with a long tenure. They work to build a strong foundation of learning for each child as well as give the utmost care to all of our families. With high teaching standards and innovative programming, our programs for children ages 6 weeks through 8 years old offer much more than traditional Lionville daycare and childcare options. Our location is also a consistent award winner for The Malvern School. We look forward to helping your child prepare for the future, and we encourage you to schedule a tour of our Lionville preschool!
