M for Music, A for Arts and C for Crafts

“Play is the work of children. Be sure they learn to play with energy and zeal.”

For the past 40 years M.A.C. Preschool & Childcare has enriched the lives of children by using thematic units as well as music and movement, and arts and crafts. We are a state-certified center and have passed all curriculum, sanitary and safety inspections since opening in 1979.

In addition, all staff members are current in Child/Infant CPR and First Aid credentials. Our teachers also attend early childhood development seminars and classes to keep their skills current and their creativity refreshed throughout the year.
