About Us


Middlebrook Playschool has been in business for 50 years, and our current owner Becky Hayward has owned MPS for 30 years. Our goal is to provide a home away from home for your child. We are honored to several generations of the same family and even have several of our children come back to join us as staff!

MPS creates a fun, loving, learning atmosphere for your child. Each day our children are exposed to arts and crafts, educational activities, and interaction with others to promote well-rounded development.

Our Kindergarten Prep program offers a hands on curriculum and time with a certified teacher to get ready for kindergarten!

We have an afterschool program that runs through the school year, as well as a summer program.

We provide a clean and safe environment where children have fun and learn at the same time. We at MPS want your child to look forward to coming to school!
