Ms. Melissa

Dear Families,

Welcome to The Scarsdale Congregational Church Nursery School for the 2016-2017 school year! As the new Director of the school, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about our school and give you a bit of background on myself.

The school’s philosophy is centered on learning through play to build a strong educational foundation for our students. Learning through play gives a young child the opportunity to thrive physically, socially, cognitively, and emotionally. Our curriculum is planned by excellent teachers and staff and is designed to reach all students in creative ways. Each program offered at SCCNS teaches the whole child.

I am so proud to be a part of this warm and nurturing school. Ever since I can remember I have had a passion for teaching children. I attended PACE University in Pleasantville NY, where I received a Masters in Elementary Education and Special Education. In my career I have taught levels K-2 nd and 2, 3 and 4 year old classes. I have three daughters who attended The Scarsdale Congregational Church Nursery School. Ten years later I had the pleasure of joining the staff as a Teacher and Head Teacher and now as Director. In my years teaching at SCCNS I have grown just as much as my students. I am thrilled and excited to take on my new role at this amazing school.

I am looking forward to getting to know you and your children.

Sincerely,

Melissa DiCostanzo
