Early Education

As a Catholic organization, Maryvale's Early Education Program embraces Christian values. Compassionate teachings incorporated into our classroom environment serve as building blocks that help children develop a healthy and positive life.

Duarte Center & Kid's Club

Maryvale began serving the early childhood education needs of the San Gabriel Valley in 1999 when it purchased "The Land of Aws" preschool. In 2011, the Duarte Early Education Center was opened in a newly christened building that was also home to Maryvale's Family Resource Center. To best meet the needs of families in the area, the Duarte campus also offers a valued kid's club and Before and After School Program for school-aged children.
