Mrs. Krista Laurenzano & Mrs. Frey
Welcome to St. Mel’s Catholic Academy Nursery Class.
We believe in a “hands on” curriculum where children learn by doing academically, socially, and spiritually.
It is a true blessing to be able to incorporate all aspects into my lessons and to watch the children grow in love and faith each day.
Be sure to check this Nursery web page frequently for events, updates and pictures of what we are doing in class.
