About The Malvern School of Westtown

The Malvern School of Westtown is excited to be a part of the West Chester community! Our fun, high-quality early childhood education program provides the Westtown area’s families with innovative programming and high teaching standards. Our programs are customized for children ages 6 weeks to 8 years old and offer much more than traditional childcare or daycare options in the area. Our brand new school is conveniently located on the corner of East Pleasant Road and Wilmington Pike/202, diagonally across the street from Stetson Middle School and right down the street from Sarah Starkweather Elementary School. Spaces at our preschool in Westtown fill up quickly, so we urge families to call for more information.
