Proudly enriching children’s lives since 1977

4 Year Old Teachers


Melissa Dileo, 4 year old Teacher

Mrs. Dileo graduated from the University of Scranton with a degree in Education.  She was a stay at home mom for many years, enjoying time with her children. Her family has lived in Aquia Harbour since 2004 and has been involved at the preschool ever since, as all three of her children attended our school.  As a parent she served on the Board of Directors as the President and as Secretary of the preschool.

Mrs. Dileo has been actively involved in many community organizations, including Treasurer of the Aquia Harbour Bingo Committee, the Aquia Harbour Women's Club where she has held various officer positions, a Girl Scouts Leader and has been very involved with the Moncure PTO, Shirley Heim Middle School and Brooke Point High School. She has been educating our 4-year olds these past several years and wonderfully preparing them for Kindergarten.

Heather Pierce, 4 year old Teacher's Assistant

Mrs. Pierce has lived in Aquia Harbour for over 10 years and all three of her children attended the Aquia Harbour Preschool.  She has worked hard for our preschool through the years, serving on the Board of Directors as the Vice President (twice!), the Fundraising Chairperson, Room Parent and assisted on nearly every committee.  She was previously our school’s substitute teacher for more than 5 years.  Mrs. Pierce has been actively involved with the Anne E. Moncure Elementary School, most recently as PTO Appreciations and previously as PTO Co-Treasurer, PTO Co-Communications Chair, and serving on several committees, as well as involvement with Shirley Heim Middle School and Brook Point High School.  Since 2006 she has also been a Girl Scout Leader, one of her most rewarding volunteer experiences.  We are thrilled to have her creative talents in our classroom.
