Taking The Stress Out Of Homework
Your child takes on their school assignments with confidence, knowing they have the support and guidance they need to succeed. New and difficult concepts become fascinating challenges when help is at hand.
Care And Attention From The Experts
A team of experienced and qualified teachers watch over, encourage, and care for your child. Together they build trust, rapport, and a stable relationship, so your child knows they are in safe hands.
A Focus On Emotional Growth Aids Development
Besides getting the academic guidance they need, your child enjoys consistency in a familiar and engaging environment, where they build the confidence to be themselves and explore their passions.
Healthy Snacks Fuel Brains And Bodies
A snack at 5.00 pm gives your child the necessary energy boost to ensure they stay focused and well regulated. The emphasis is on fresh fruit, vegetables, and nutrient-rich ingredients, to promote healthy habits.
Time With Friends Strengthens Bonds
Your child builds fast friendships and solid relationships with their after-school peers, broadening their social spectrum and deepening those all-important social skills while playing and having fun.
Building Strength In The Fresh Air
Plenty of opportunities for outdoor play give your child the chance to learn new skills and games, make new friends, develop their physical strength, and a love for being outside in nature.
Familiarity Creates A Sense Of Belonging
As part of the after-school community, your child feels involved and included in a team. They are part of the family and take pride in their identity, promoting confidence and a sense of self.

Hear What Parents Have To Say...
"A place you can truly trust"As a first time mom, it is so difficult to find a place you can truly trust and consider family. My daughter has been with MFA2 for almost 5 months and loves it. It was a hard transition for her (and me) but everyone at the school made it much easier. I have visited numerous schools and nothing compares to MFA2. Everyone is so involved and friendly from the teachers to administration. I am so grateful for such an amazing school and Ms. Maria, the owner.
"The whole staff is amazing"I really could not ask for a better daycare to take my little man to! The whole staff is amazing and they take really great care of my baby. I know this because his entire face lights up every morning when he see's his teacher!! They keep me updated all day through their app - when he eats, has a diaper change, what artwork they did today, and when he play's outside. I'd love to be at home with him everyday, but since that isn't an option, I'm greatful that I have these wonderful people to care for my son.
"Their facility was so clean!"Being a 1st time Mom was very hard for me to leave my son in any daycare. When I I found My First Academy I felt at ease that this was the right place for my son. Their facility was so clean, organize and very kid friendly. Also, I wasn't looking for just a daycare, I also was looking for a place for my son to learn and MFA also teaches the children everything related to their age and prepare them for Kindergarten.
"The teachers and staff are always so helpful"MFA is a great learning center for kids. My daughter Laila has been attending MFA since she was just 2 years old. By the time I knew it she was already potty trained and her vocabulary had broadened up. She is now 4 and in the VPK class with Ms. Velez and Ms.Dani. The teachers and staff are always so helpful and always open for communication.The school is always clean and well organized. I highly recommend MFA to all parents looking for an awesome pre-school.
"He is always so happy going and coming from school"First off I want to thank the entire staff at My First Academy for becoming JJ’s second family ! He is always so happy going and coming from school. Since being at MFA he has learned so much, also the teachers all keep me informed of everything he does and how he’s feeling. I am beyond happy with my decision with putting JJ there. Besides the super organized schedule they have they are also very clean! I love it ! Thank you My First Academy!!!
"Excellent teachers and very friendly"Amazing school and awesome staff. My son love the school and more the teachers. Great atmosphere for any children. Excellent teachers and very friendly. Ryan is a happy boy there.
"They are so nurturing, patient and loving"The teachers at My First Academy 2 are amazing! They are so nurturing, patient and loving.

"The staff was super friendly"I called a couple months ago and although there was currently no space for my 2 year old the staff was super friendly over the phone and put me on a waiting list. The best thing is they made me feel very welcome and never sounded bothered for the many times i called to find out about the wait. When there was an opening they jept in touch with me im super excited to call them back this week and go and enroll my baby.
"We knew our precious angel was In great hands"I can't even begin to express how grateful I am that My first Academy exists. When looking for a daycare to take care of my daughter, my wife and I were very nervous to leave our daughter anywhere. The staff and teachers at My First Academy immediately made us feel like family. We knew our precious angel was In great hands. My oldest is now in Kindergarten and is WAY ahead in her studies. She even helps the teacher teach some of the materials to the class and this is all due to the excellent teachers and staff at My First Academy!!
"My son loves going to school everyday"Ms.Martinez for the VPK group is such a pleasure! She has helped throughout it all to make sure Christian gets the attention that he needs to succeed . My son loves going to school everyday with no complaints.Staff are very supportive of each other and I love how hands on the directors are with the children of any age.Very family oriented and organized. Definitely worth referring people to take your kids to My First Academy
"I trust that my son is always safe and cared for!"I started my son in an in home daycare and we quickly realized it was not for us! The teachers at My First Academy not only take amazing care of my son, they have taught him so much! My 2 year old knows what a hexagon is! I trust that my son is always safe and cared for! Having that allows me the peace of mind I need to do my job every day!
"I will recommend the school\daycare to anyone"We started our daughter 2 years ago with My First Academy. We look many places and by a very far My First Academy was the best. They have everything you need for your kids. The teching and attention to details is amazing. My daughther comes home with knowledge that you know is going to help in the future. I will recommend the school\daycare to anyone.
"My son has learned so much from the short time attending"I absolutely love My First Academy! As soon as I took a tour of the school I knew this was the school I wanted my child to attend! The staff is so warm and welcoming and the school is so neat and organized. My son has learned so much from the short time attending. Thank you so much for being so great at your jobs!
"I wish all preschools would learn from them"I've experienced My First Academy through my students. I've had a privilege of teaching students that have come from this school over the years and they are always high achieving students and come well prepared for Kindergarten. I wish all preschools would learn from them.
"She enjoyed and loved that place"my daughter was there for about 3 years from vpk to after school on kindergarten and first grade, she enjoyed and loved that place and all the people she met there. Good things you don't forget, and she remember all of you.
"The staff genuinely cares about the kids"The staff genuinely cares about the kids and make sure they feel welcome and part of the group.
