Welcome to Mahtomedi Area Preschool (MAP)

Preschool is an exciting time for young learners. Building on what children have learned from their parents as their first teachers, Mahtomedi Area Preschool helps prepare them for the world of kindergarten.  

MAP takes 3-5 year olds through daily activities that strengthen social-emotional, physical, and cognitive development. The curriculum features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. Math, language and literacy skills are sharpened in MAP, as is self-regulation. Along the way children further develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking abilities.

Teachers and associates truly get to know each child as they grow together through their MAP experience.

We look forward to having your family join our MAP family!
