Dear families,

Welcome to Ridgeway Nursery School and Kindergarten. RNSK is an outstanding nursery school and Kindergarten.  Serving ages 2-5, RNSK provides a sound first school experience for our little ones, educating the whole child – physically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually. The staff at RNSK provides a warm and nurturing environment and is highly qualified to work with our Pre-K population.

As the Interim Director, I am honored to be part of the Ridgeway family. Formerly a classroom teacher, I served as Supervisor of Professional Development for 17 years at Southern Westchester Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), providing training to over 65 school districts in the tri-county area. In this role, I had lead responsibility for providing training in Early Literacy, Research-based Instructional Practices and effectively implementing Common Core Standards. In addition, I served as Coordinator of Reading Recovery, an early intervention program offered through NYU, for first graders at risk of failing to read.

I view each and every day at Ridgeway as an opportunity for me to assist in building capacity for our school and church community to grow and thrive together for the betterment of the children!
