For Early Childhood Education

The Malvern School of Upper Gwynedd

The Malvern School’s preschool in Upper Gwynedd is conveniently located across from Station Square Apartments, just down the street from the Pennbrook train station. Our qualified teachers and assistants have been part of the Malvern family for many years. Our innovative programs for children aged 6 weeks through 8 years old offer much more than traditional Upper Gwynedd daycare options. Our focus is to create an environment that allows children to learn and experience the world using all of their senses. We look forward to helping your child prepare for the future, and we encourage you to schedule a tour of our Upper Gwynedd preschool!

Meet Our Directors

Amie Beyrent, Executive Director

Amie Beyrent, Executive Director at our Upper Gwynedd location, has been working with The Malvern School since 2010. Amie graduated from Kutztown University with a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. She has more than ten years of experience in a preschool setting. Amie’s love of literacy brought her to The Malvern School. The school’s Mrs. Bush’s Story Time program introduces many of Amie’s much loved childhood books to the children at The Malvern School. Malvern’s innovative curriculum provides an atmosphere where the children can learn to enjoy books as much as she does. Along with reading, Amie’s interests include spending time with her family, traveling and baking.

Cate Dodge, Director of Education

Cate Dodge is the Director of Education at The Malvern School of Upper Gwynedd. 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 was a Director at a privately-owned program in Radnor. 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 son, reading and spending time with friends and family. 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.
