"Mrs. Musacchio was our preschool teacher for four years. She created a beautiful environment that was well-balanced in academics, free play and faith-based learning. The peace of mind that our children were in the care of an excellent and nurturing teacher was priceless!" Elizabeth

" I had the privilege of working with and supervising Mrs. Musacchio for a number of years.

She is a gifted teacher, both students and parents adore and respect her.

Her creativity is endless! Her deep faith is evident in all she does.

It is an honor to recommend her as your child’s Pre-K teacher!"

Paul Cuttica

Retired Dean of Students

"Words cannot express how much we love Mrs. Musacchio. Our family has been blessed to have her teach both of our two older children. She is compassionate, kind and patient with all of her students. She nurtures each child and helps shape them individually. She helps guide them spiritually, mentally and physically while encouraging them to be the best version of themselves. Her commitment and sacrifice to teaching does not go unnoticed. I believe that our child’s education is the foundation for a better future and she has the gift to inspire and shape the little minds." Melissa and Eric
