What families are saying...

"My daughter is 5 and has greatly benefited from the Jump Start program this year! The MAP teachers, as well as the MAP curriculum is fun, dynamic and enriching and has greatly enhanced my daughter's academic as well social progress. I am overjoyed that MAP now offers a wonderful program for preschoolers and feel very fortunate that my daughter is a part of it!"

 - Ruth McGary

MAP has been helpful to our daughter.  MAP has encouraged our daughter to learn in a relaxed, yet constructive environment by promoting educational play.  The program has also allowed her to extend her school day in preparation for kindergarten.  In addition, MAP has facilitated growth in our daughter by promoting independence at meal time and helping her establish a variety of friends with both Pre-K and kindergarten aged children.
