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. Kueter 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.
I am a teacher at Mary Sears Children's Academy in Manteno, and I am thrilled to work here. I come to work everyday with a smile because I know I'm around teachers who love their job just as much as I do, and children who love to learn. The program at Mary Sears Children's Academy is deisgned to challenge children in a way they enjoy. Activities are made to boost not only knowledge but also instill qualities these children can take with them as they grow. I have taught at Mary Sears Childens Academy for 2 years now and I am proud to say its the most rewarding job I've had. My two year old daughter Is also enrolled here and I am so impressed with how much she learns everyday. I love seeing her come home everyday and be excited to go back tomorrow! I invite everyone to call and schedule an appointment to walk through and see for yourselves what our school can offer your child. I know you'll be just as impressed as I am!
My name is Catherine; my two children have been attending Mary Sears since they were infants. My son is now a kindergarten graduate and can read, write, and is also bilingual. He can speak Spanish and is very advanced in math also. He knows what the word respect means and has great manners due to the combined efforts of the staff at Mary Sears and myself. He is well rounded, advanced, and a respectful little boy! As for my daughter, she is 4 years old and is also very advanced for her age. She speaks Spanish, shows respect, and has good manners due to the efforts of the staff at Mary Sears and myself. The possibilities are endless. I am confident that I made the best decision sending them to Mary Sears for their early education. The school is filled with positive staff member and also very helpful. If I had to do this all over again, I would sign them up to attend Mary Sears all over again.
