Director's Welcome

Thank you for visiting our website. Preschool in the Valley is a ministry of Great Valley Presbyterian Church, an historic church located in Malvern, PA.

We believe that each child is made in the image of God, and should have every opportunity to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.


Should you have any questions about our school, our facilities, or our various program offerings, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

Our Philosophy


We believe that all children learn through play, and seek to provide a child-centered, developmentally appropriate curriculum, which focuses on the growth of the whole child. We offer a variety of learning experiences - sensory, motor, perceptual and language skills. The social skills of listening, speaking, following directions, cooperation and problem solving are also emphasized. Most of all, we want to help children experience and learn about the good news of God's love as shown through His Son, Jesus Christ.

The preschool is an avenue whereby our church can live out the message of God’s love expressed through Jesus Christ, who said,  “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14, NIV)
