A few words from Sara Vasilakos, Director…..

“As you know, there are numerous factors that contribute to a child’s school success. Although emphasis tends to be placed on academics, your child’s physical, emotional, and social well-being are of equal importance.I truly believe that a positive school experience can only be achieved if we work collaboratively in your child’s best interest. You are your child’s strongest advocate and, even at this early age, you have a powerful influence on your child’s learning as well as on their attitude toward learning. That said, the staff and I are committed to providing the best possible educational experience for your children. Please keep the lines of communication open and never hesitate to approach your child’s teacher or myself with any concerns. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!”

Please note that all children must be completely immunized to attend our school.

Our Science Program

Our science teacher gets childrens’ curiosity running wild with her hands on, center based, learning activities. Units vary by season providing an assortment of topics to coincide with classroom lessons as well as NYS Learning Standards.


Every other week, Pixie students transform into “scientists in training” as they perform experiments right in our own science lab!


Mrs. Stephanie Ryan, science teacher and Pixie parent, holds a Bachelors Degree in Education from Long Island University at C.W. Post.
