The Chenango Valley Nursery School employs a team of dedicated, experience professionals. Our teachers, and their assistants, will help your child develop to their full potential socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.
I am Mrs. Stolarcyk, the current Director here at CVNS. I have been a part of the CVNS family for over 17 years. First as a parent and then as a teacher here for over 10 years. My love for this school and this community truly runs deep. I love spending time with my family and our pets, Sammy our dog, and Pancake our cat. When I am not here at school you can find me outside in my garden, going for a hike or reading a book. My goal is to make every family's time with us the best it can possibly be!

I am Mrs. Gardepe one of CVNS’s Preschool teachers. I have been in the Early Childhood Education profession for over 15 years. I took a break after my son was born to stay home with him. I recently came back to the classroom after my son entered school full time. I fell in love with the program here at CVNS after my son attended both the Pre-School and Pre-K programs here. It is the perfect fit! I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading books and drinking coffee!
