As life-longer learners ourselves, we were initially drawn to Mary Sears?? reputation of maintaining a strong, comprehensive curriculum. We quickly came to recognize that the school had much more to offer: A focus on being and thinking positive, respecting each other, and learning responsibility. Each day, we were greeted with a smile from the school directors, Mrs. Keuter or Mr. Patrick, and our children would run into their classrooms to begin the day. The kindergarten program exceeded my expectations from the curriculum to the in-class projects, parties, and numerous field trips. The preschool program was equally impressive, and included audio, visual, and tactile learning elements for early language, math, and science. All of the teachers have been patient, polite, warm-hearted, and extremely accessible. Both of our children have grown intellectually and socially as students at the Manteno MSCA, and we are proud to be a part of the Mary Sears family.

My 2 year old daughter has been attending Mary Sears in Mantino since she was 14 weeks old. I am amazed at how much she has learned and how social she is. She started counting in spanish one day out of the blue and she has so many little friends. The teachers are all wonderful with the children and give great feedback. I also like the fact that there is no television watching during the day. The children are always doing projects or reading stories or having "dance parties" according to my daughter. As a first time mom it was so hard leaving my baby and going back to work but knowing she is in a safe place where her needs are being met and she is having fun makes the process so much easier!

Both of our sons have been going to Mary Sears Childrens Academy since they were babies and we could not ask for a better school. Its a place where you can drop your Child off, and literally not worry about them. The care is top notch

I had 3 children that attended Mary Sears. They went there for day care and pre-school. My girls absolutely loved it. They liked all their teachers (some more than others). The staff is very loving towards my whole family. I think

As crazy as the review below may sound, it is 100% accurate. I am an actual teacher who took my infant to this facility for nearly a year and a half. I found out at that time from a former employee that I had been lied to about how my son

The poor reviews about this school are absolutely correct! I can vouch from experience and regret ever using this ??school?. Do NOT send your children here! None of the ??teachers? are certified and anyone in a position of power is related to the director. They are given carte blanche to do or say whatever they want. They put on a lovely dog and pony show for parents about how the ??children come first?. However, after the parents leave they just let children sit and cry, and actually yell at staffers who try to comfort the children! Mary Sears talks about a lot about R-E-S-P-E-C-T but they don??t show any respect to the children OR to the staff!
The school ??rules? state that children should ??never be talked down to?, but this is routinely ignored by bitter and mean sarcastic ??teachers? who demean the children and mock them. Screaming at a three year old to ??RESPECT!? means nothing if you don??t set the example for them.
I recently took a course in classroom management and everything the instructor discussed about having consistent rules and a calm and caring atmosphere was never followed at Mary Sears. They would routinely make up new ??rules? on the spot that didn??t exist before, and spend more time spying on each other and engaging in gossip than watching their own classrooms. They break their own ??rules? about how males are not to be with the children when they go to the bathroom. What they claim goes on and what actually occurs are completely different things. I know what my children experienced and they are NOT liars. Mary Sears is a terrible institution and more like a boot camp that any kind of loving nurturing environment. I hope this place gets shut down.
