Social Services

Marble Hill Nursery School is very fortunate to have the services of Chris Cassorla, our school psychologist, several days each week.  Chris works with groups of children in sessions that incorporate art, storytelling and role playing, which increase our children’s ability to identify and verbalize their feelings.  On a daily basis, the teachers reinforce behavior of empathy, inclusion and tolerance.  The great diversity in our school provides the ideal forum in which to teach lessons of understanding, compassion, and respect, lessons we hope will help our children create a better future.

Parents are also welcome to request a meeting with Chris by making arrangements through the office.

Speech Therapy

Marble Hill Nursery School is fortunate to have weekly visits from speech language pathologist Maria Blanco of Growing Minds Therapeutics. Maria works one-on-one with children in need of therapeutic services. For more information contact the office.
