Fabienne Melito is the Head Teacher for the Petite Ecole and cares for our youngest students, under 3 years old. She was born in Lyon, France, and was a registered nurse in France before emigrating to the United States with her husband, Jean Claude. Together they have 4 children, 3 of whom live here in the States, and one who resides in France. Fabienne is also the proud grandmother of a beautiful granddaughter who luckily lives here in Arizona where she is spoiled by her happy grandparents.  Fabienne has been taking care of our littlest children since 2011 and her love and care for them is evident in how easily they come to her for comfort during their day at school. Fabienne always has a big smile when she talks about her “petits”.
