Mariposa is a truly amazing preschool and the owner, Patty, is amazing as well. She cares so deeply for the kids at the school. Our daughter is 21 months and has been attending for the past 5 months and has made the best connections with the other children and her teachers. We adore the other parents as well. It's just a real winner all around.
