Welcome to Mahtomedi Area Preschool
(MAP) 2022-23!

Preschool is an exciting time for young learners. Mahtomedi Area Preschool (MAP) helps prepare students for the world of kindergarten. MAP takes 3-5-year-olds through daily activities to 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.
