    Nancy and Eric
  • M.I. Preschool is a wonderful learning environment for our son. He is developing both mentally and socially through a wide variety of experiences. As parents, we love having him in a nurturing and caring setting that is also fun and educational. As for our son, he doesn't want to leave.

  • My son has been enrolled at M.I. Preschool for 2 years now. The teachers always encourage the students to think independently and provides multiple opportunities for engaging learning in a safe and loving environment. M.I. Leaning Center’s facility is set up in an organized fashion that is conducive for students to make personal choices about their activities.

  • I researched preschools in depth for my daughters and the ONLY school I found to offer everything I wanted was MI Preschool. The curriculum, the teachers, the school...everything fit our family needs perfectly! Since Quinn and Clara started last spring they have grown leaps and bounds and now have a great outlet for their creative energy.
  • MI preschool is a wonderful learning environment for our daughter. She loves to go to preschool and has grown in so many areas of development – physical, social, cognitive, and language. Ms. Jackie and Ms. Noel are amazing teachers that are able to meet each child at their level of development. We are so happy that we have found this preschool for our daughter.
    Kristen and Rick Capka
  • My daughter graduated from M.I preschool this summer and will attend kindergarten this fall. Our experience at M.I. was exceptional. I had never seen anything like it. My daughter thrived with Ms. Jackie and Ms. Noel. Our daughter is socially and emotionally, loves to practice her letters and is ready for kindergarten which I attribute much of her preparedness to M.I.
    Chris Steinat
  • MI Preschool is exactly what I was looking for in a preschool. All you have to do is walk in the door to see that MI is 100% geared toward the preschooler. Ms. Jackie and her staff are wonderful teachers, they really get to know the kids and are able to gear the lessons to the abilities of each child.
