What Our Parents Say:
“I started working at MKU a month ago so I could get a space for my 2-year-old daughter. As an early education specialist of 13 years, this school is spot on. The owners are committed to doing things right and the teachers are happy and well cared for, which shows in the care they give the children. So excited for both our futures here!” Nicole F
“My daughter is so happy at this school! The owners are amazing and committed to doing things right. The teachers are happy and well cared for, which shows in the care they give the kids. Best decision I’ve made in a long time!” Nicole
“We moved our children here after we found that our old daycare was too chaotic and disorganized for our younger son (6 months). We were nervous because our older son (3) had been doing quite well and we weren’t sure how he would adjust. One week in and I can say we are SO glad we made the move, for both kids. The attention and quality of care our kids receive is outstanding. The environment is calming but not sterile, and the space is new and clean. Our sons both seem to be thriving, and I love the activities that they do with the preschool class. This is such a fantastic preschool and we are so grateful it opened.” –Annie W
“Well planned with focus, ingenuity, safety concerns, creativity in mind for a total child’s learning experience in this new Montessori School.” –Sara M.
“I highly recommend this school. My 6 month old is thriving here and we could not be more happy!” –Natasha L.
