Aquia Harbour Preschool

Proudly enriching children’s lives since 1977

4 Year Old Virtual Teacher


Melissa Dileo, 4 year old Teacher


My name is Melissa Dileo. I have a Bachelor's degree in Education from the University of Scranton. My family and I have lived in Aquia Harbour since 2004, and we have been involved at Aquia Harbour Preschool ever since, as all 3 of my children attended the preschool. As a parent I served on the AHPS Board of Directors as the President and as Secretary. Our family enjoyed our years at the preschool where we have many fond memories and created lasting friendships. Now it is my pleasure to be able to contribute to the preschool in a new way as teacher.

I have been teaching the 4 year old classes at AHPS since 2012, and I hope to create many good memories for your family as well as a good educational base for your children as they prepare to start Kindergarten. I have been actively involved in many community organizations during my time in Stafford, VA. I am a member of the Aquia Harbour Women's Club where I have held various officer positions. I am currently President of Brooke Point High School PTSO and Treasurer of Brooke Point High School PTSO After Prom. I also served on the board of the Moncure PTO and participated on the Shirley Heim PTO. I was a Girl Scout Leader for my daughters, and was Treasurer of the Aquia Harbour Bingo Committee. I served on the SCPS Citizens' Budget Advisory Committees and the Redistricting Committees. When my youngest child started Kindergarten I went back to teaching as a substitute teacher for Aquia Harbour Preschool and Stafford County Schools. I love teaching, and I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you this school year.
