    Melisa Kehlmann
    Administrative Director

    As a preschool manager in the West Village for 5+ years. I have single-handedly run all scheduling, public relations, website development, HR, payroll duties, liaison between families, teachers. Also, acting as the head of admissions at my current school, I have doubled enrollment and have successfully managed to sell out every program. Having to turn away families, I realized the greater need. I have a private website available for view.
