What families are saying...

“My husband and I believe that having our girls go to MAP was the best decision we made!   MAP sparked a curiosity and love of learning in our daughters that has been the best springboard for their schooling. MAP's hands-on approach to learning was exactly what our active children needed. The topics that MAP teaches are impressive. Most days, Anna and Elle come home eagerly wanting to tell us about science experiments, clubs they got to pick, the new classroom theme, countries they learned about and so much more! Having your child excitedly tell you about their day and what they learned at MAP is a parent’s dream!  In addition, the staff at MAP are top notch. They truly care about all the children. The educators are happy, creative, genuine and welcoming. A sense of community is instantly felt when you enter the MAP classroom. My husband and I can proudly say that MAP's staff and curriculum have exceeded our expectations and provided our kids with an irreplaceable love of learning and exploring.”      

   - Stacey and Matt Cawley 

“My twin boys have been attending MAP since the day they turned 4 and have absolutely loved every second of it.  Our "MAP Day" is always their favorite day of the week and I wake to ear-to-ear smiles when the boys wake up and ask what we are doing that day!  MAP provides the perfect complement to their learning at preschool......They love their themed weeks, playing with the animals, and having free time to use their imagination, whether they are playing hot wheels with their friends, or driving a space ship that was created 'by the big kids'!  The teachers at MAP are so encouraging, welcoming and loving and as a mom who wants to start her children off with a love a learning, I couldn't have found a better place for my children to attend.”
