For Early Childhood Education

The Malvern School of Oaks

The Malvern School’s preschool in Oaks is conveniently located off the Oaks exit of Highway 422 and just outside of Phoenixville. We have been serving our community since 2010, and our enrollment has consistently grown since we opened our doors! Our quality of early childhood education and child care is shown through the continuous recommendations of our families to their friends and neighbors. Our staff is passionate about educating children, and our innovative programs for children aged 6 weeks through 8 years old offer much more than traditional Oaks daycare options. We look forward to helping your child prepare for the future, and we encourage you to schedule a tour of our Oaks preschool!

What Parents are saying:

With caring and dedicated teaching professionals, and an age appropriate curriculum for young children, The Malvern School has done wonders for our child.
