The children are introduced children-sized furniture and constructive elements which will help and support their needs and their physical and psychological development. This environment aids to develop the children inner-self, and also helps to establish their basic movements and abilities as they continuously work towards becoming independent. The Toddler Room is nurturing, warm, and stimulating. It is a place of love that is constituted with knowledge, respect and work. Teachers welcome any questions parents may have and encourage an open line of communication. The Toddler Room serves as an introduction to what the children can expect when they graduate to the Casa Room.
“My husband and I shopped around quite a bit when looking for care/schools for our son and we were thoroughly impressed by Julie, Jessica, and everyone else at Mastermind! We found ourselves comparing everyone else to the high level of professionalism found in the staff at Mastermind. This made it a clear choice and gave us confidence our child would be in good hands”

The Casa program offers an enriched language and math curriculum, as well as lessons in geography, history, biology, zoology and science. All the lessons are individually presented to the child when they are ready and at a level created for their abilities. The Casa environment is designed for children aged, approximately 2.5 to 6 years with materials and lessons ranging in difficulty and required experience. The materials within the classroom develop and foster concentration, orderly work habits, confidence and self-assurance. The child’s individuality will be respected and guided by the teachers within the room and an emphasis is placed upon independence and self-reliance.
“I enrolled my daughter at MMSA since the school opened and she is very happy every day and loves to go to school. The teachers and the staff are very nice and friendly.”
