Brette Koutsoukos
Director

My name is Brette Koutsoukos. I am the Education Director at Little Scholars V. Since as early as I can remember, I have known that I wanted to pursue a career in the field of Education. I grew up in a large family in Brooklyn, so babysitting my younger cousins was my first experience in this field. I always loved watching children learn and as I got older, I loved learning how to teach them, to best suit their individual needs and interests. Being able to make a difference in a child’s life, has always brought an added sense of purpose to my own life. I graduated with a Dual Master’s Degree and hold New York State Certification in General and Special Education. I have experience in various types of childcare settings. I have worked in public schools, private schools, with city funded programs, such as the Pre-K for All program and Federally funded programs, such as Head Start. I also have experience working with children one to one, as a tutor, and as a Special Needs Service Provider. These experiences have helped me to gain insight into all aspects of Early Childhood Education and the learning process. My experience as an Education Director has helped me to understand all of the inner working of the childcare system. My experience with the Pre-K For All program and working with the Department of Education, has helped me to understand the vision for the future of Early Childhood Education in New York City and it is truly exciting! I love working at Little Scholars and being able to call myself part of an organization which truly embodies high caliber care for children. The importance of a quality education, particularly in the early years, cannot be stressed enough, as these years are the most important years of growth in all of the various areas of child development and help to lay the foundation for future learning. These experiences serve to create children’s first and lasting impressions of school. I work with my teachers to create positive and memorable learning experiences for children, that they will take with them throughout their life. We want our students to be motivated, to be challenged, to feel accepted and to learn, in a safe, supportive and positive environment. We value our students and their families, as we recognize, and appreciate the various role that families play in the lives of our little ones, which is why we maintain open lines of communication, through various means and platforms, to create and accomplish the goals we have collaboratively set for their children. The sky is the limit and I am confident that all of our Little Scholars will grow up to do wonderful things.
