M for Music, A for Arts and C for Crafts
“Play is the work of children. Be sure that they learn to play with energy and zeal.”
For the past 30 years M.A.C.’s preschool program 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.
