Jean Bannon – Director

I have been working for The Nursery School of Christ Church for eleven years.  I was the teacher in the PS 2 for eight years, along with being Assistant Director for six years, and Director for the past two years.  I have been in the preschool setting for 20 years, and love being able to still get into the classrooms and interact with the children.

Maria Feliz-Collado – Assistant Director

I have worked in preschool/early childhood for over 14 years. I have a Masters degree in Early Childhood and Special Education from Mercy College in NY. I have been an assistant teacher, a lead teacher and administrator/supervisor and a special education evaluator. I love working in preschool/early childhood and am excited about the new opportunity I have been given here at the Nursery School of Christ Church.

Melissa Downing – Kindergarten

I have been teaching the kindergarten class at The Nursery School of Christ Church since September, 2005. I have a BA in Elementary Education from Montclair State University. I enjoy teaching language arts, math, science and art through creative and hands-on activities.

Marva Banfield – Preschool 2

I have been working for The Nursery School of Christ Church for four years. From the moment I came here I knew this was the place I wanted to work. The staff is very warm and welcoming. The children are all unique. The excitement in their eyes when they finish a puzzle, write a letter, a number, or remember a story is magical.

Kathy Campione – Preschool 1

I have been employed here at The Nursery School of Christ Church for 13 years, teaching in the Toddler Room and Preschool 1. My love of children is obvious having raised five children of my own. Learning new things in a “fun” environment is my style of teaching. I especially enjoy doing science projects!!!

Marcia Campione – Infant Room Manager

I have been working for The Nursery School of Christ Church for the past 12 years.  I find it very rewarding working with children. I provide the children in my care with a safe and loving environment and enjoy playing, singing and reading to them.

Shirley Blackwell – Toddler 2

I have been working for The Nursery School of Christ Church for three years. I am the teacher in the Toddler 2 Room. The best part of my day is interacting with the children while they are playing.

Nicolette Castelli – Toddler 1

I have been working at The Nursery School of Christ Church for four years. I graduated from William Paterson University with a B.A in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. I believe that each child is unique and learn through hands-on experiences.

Ana Sierra – Spanish

I have been working for The Nursery School of Christ Church for 11 years.  I am the Spanish teacher and I enjoy working and singing with the children.  The best part of the day is hearing the children saying words in Spanish.

Theresa Molinaro – After Care Coordinator

I am enjoying being the After Care Coordinator at The Nursery School of Christ Church because I get to interact with all of the children in the school. I hold a BA in Elementary Education with specialization in Early Childhood Education from Felician College. I love watching the children grow and working with them as they play new games, create works of art and explore their world.
