Mrs. Paraiso

Pre-K Teacher (5 days)

May Paraiso


May Paraiso is the Lead Teacher in the 5-day Pre-K class. This is her first year at Kids in Discovery Preschool, but has been teaching preschool since 1999.

She graduated with a B.A. in Communications from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, New York, and holds an American Montessori Society Certificate in Early Childhood Education.

May is originally from Staten Island, New York, and has been living in Richmond for almost 20 years.  She and her husband, Ed, have two children, Nicholas (a senior in college) and Julia (a senior in high school).  They also have an adorable Bichon named Jojo.  In her free time, May enjoys playing the piano, listening to audiobooks, traveling with her family, and dining out with friends.

She is very excited to start her first year at Kids in Discovery Preschool.


We believe in a balanced curriculum of play, creative art, music, outdoor play, conversation, story time, experimentation & exploration, dramatic play, and group activities.
