Our Mission

Here at North Mahaska we believe that quality education is key to personal development and begins at birth. Beyond educational development we strive to encourage personal growth and instill quality social skills. By using a variety of learning techniques you can be assured that your child is receiving a well-rounded and individualized education. Our teaching staff has a passion for the curriculum and child development which shines through in the care and excitement they bring to their classroom. Our mission is to help all children reach their maximum potential and set them up for a successful future.
