About our teachers and childcare professionals!

Malena’s Mini School employs a team of dedicated teachers and childcare professionals who are not only fully accredited and certified but have many years of experience in this field. The staff at Malena’s Mini School is committed to educating the children of the community to be physically, academically, emotionally and socially prepared.

In 1983 I believed I could improve children’s lives. With 8 years of directing experience under my belt, I put all my savings into opening Malena’s Mini School. In 1985 I was blessed enough to double the size of my first school. In 1987 I was able to open my second school. Each school is very successful with approximately 120 children enrolled. Malena’s has the pleasure of rising multiple generation of families. My wonderful staff has been the key to my success.
