Just as your little one was nurtured and loved before coming into this world, so too was Please and Thank You Children's Place. PTYCP started as a dream influenced by my own early childhood experiences, by learning and growing as a mother to three children, and teaching early childhood; 20+ years of rewarding experiences with children across Westchester County.
Along the way, I envisioned a program where children would feel safe to play, learn, and grow. There is an air of harmony, peace, and wonderment at Please and Thank You Children's Place. We look forward to playing and learning together each day. We are a family of friends; a preschool family. PTYCP is everything I imagined it would be and so much more- a community of happy, healthy developing children and their supportive families.
Loving the early childhood years, working with families, and helping children to grow is my true passion. Supporting children in a multitude of settings has been an honor. In addition to these experiences, I hold a dual Master of Science in Education, and dual NYS Professional Teaching Certifications;
Birth - Grade 2 Early Childhood Education and Students with Disabilities;
CPR-First Aid Certified.
Providing this wonderful environment is a dream I am proud to offer to the community. I am thankful to support, encourage and nurture little lives!

Our Assistant Teacher brings a warm smile and a BIG heart to preschool, ready for a morning of learning adventures with friends- she loves EVERYTHING about our mornings together! Mrs. Carmela is loved by our preschoolers, and there is something that makes her an extra special teacher; her youngest is a graduate of PTYCP! Mrs. Carmela knows firsthand the care and dedication we shower our children and families with.
During previous years, Mrs. Carmela facilitated a supporting role to young children's developmental growth; working with families to care for and nurture children's developmental milestones through age-appropriate, safe, fun-loving experiences. She advances her expertise in Early Childhood Development and Education through Professional Development approved by OCFS, and is CPR-First Aid Certified. She looks forward to growing with each child and their family, and to new experiences at preschool each day!
Mrs. Carmela is a resident of West Harrison and lives with her husband and their two beautiful children. Her favorite activities are centered around family time- outdoor play with her children, gatherings with extended family, and spending time with neighborhood families and their children.
PTYCP works diligently with the Office of Children and Family Services to ensure children's safety, health, and well-being. Families searching for regulated, quality early childhood programs can view NYS Regulations, verify program licensing and Information, and program compliance records through the OCFS web site. This is one step toward making an important decision: finding a program you can trust with the most precious piece of your heart.
We deliver high-quality programming above and beyond mandated licensing regulations. Families can trust PTYCP's commitment and exceptional care for children's positive early learning and developmental experiences. Little ones enjoy their days together in our safe, nurturing, loving community!
