LINDA HARVEY is the head teacher in our Full-Day Prekindergarten class. This class is a state funded program for children who reach the age of four prior to December 1, whose families meet mandated eligibility requirements. Linda brings a wealth of experience to our Full-Day PK class. She is a certified New York State teacher with a Master of Science in Education, as well as a credentialed Montessori directress. She owned and operated her own Montessori school, and has trained extensively in Montessori teaching methods at the Center for Montessori Teacher Education in New Rochelle.


BEATRIX STEFAN has been working at the Montessori Center for over eight years. Beatrix received her Child Development Associates credential at Rockland Community College and anticipates starting her Montessori certification studies this school year. A former preschool teacher in her native Hungary, she is very artistic and loves designing projects for her students. Beatrix is working toward her Montessori certification through the Center for Guided Montessori Studies. She also directs the Montessori Center of Nyack after school program.


JESSICA AVILA is our newest and most welcome addition at the Montessori Center of Nyack. She not only works with Linda and Beatrix in our full-day UPK class, but also is a lunch monitor and after school assistant. Jessica has a lovely way with children, and is popular with the other staff as well. She is currently studying for her Child Development Associate credential
