Why did I choose MMS? Well, how could I not have?
I heard about it from someone I was working with at the time, after I mentioned that I was looking for a part–time preschool for my three–year–old son. He and his sister, who was fifteen months old, were at a home childcare with a nice woman, but she had urged me to look into preschool. My acquaintance gave me an informational packet, I took a tour, and I was so impressed that, within a matter of days, I had enrolled both children. I actually felt guilty I had not done it sooner.
It wasn’t just a school. It was a family. It wasn’t just a classroom. It was an environment that fosters children to achieve their fullest potential. It was not just book learning, but so much more. The values instilled in them are close to my heart and in my home— non–violent crisis resolution/peace, respect for diversity, the importance of caring for ourselves and others as well as the environment, a love of learning, independence and self direction. I am grateful my children can have such a variety of experiences through the art, music, foreign language, and physical education classes, as well as the field trips. All of the staff are so caring and helpful.
That was 2003, and my children are now eleven, nine, and four. My four–year–old started school there when she was six weeks old. I have never regretted my decision to choose MMS.
