The Malvern School Preschool Program provides children with a culturally diverse learning environment where children develop a positive self-image, respect for others, and foster their independence and curiosity as a learner.

Aesthetic expression is also encouraged through music and art activities. Our Preschool Program will prepare children for future academic success.
