"I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the entire staff of M.A.T.S.S. for providing my daughter with 3 years full of fun, love, friendship, and education. It was hard to leave my 2-year-old, knowing that I wouldn't see her until the end of my work day-- yet it was not long until I saw what amazingly capable hands she was in. I must admit that part of me was a little sad when she would see me at the end of the day and say, "Wait, Mommy - I want to stay just a few more minutes!" But seeing her smile and knowing that she was surrounded by a staff that truly cared for her and enriched her days with lots of fun activities and lessons made me so happy. I was both excited and sad when she finally graduated this year - excited to see how much she had grown and learned in the past 3 years, but sad to leave behind the friends we had made here that truly became an extension of our family. We will never forget the wonderful experiences and will be sure to come back to visit soon!"
Best, Laura Evans
"After speaking with other parents and visiting many early childcare centers, my wife and I made the decision to enroll our child at M.A.T.S.S., where he stayed for three wonderful years. Like all parents, we wanted first and foremost a safe and comfortable environment to entrust our precious little one to – the entire staff are wonderful and well-organized, most will know your child’s name in no time. The facilities is well-maintained. The teachers are experienced, professional and caring and are second to none… since our child had some difficulty being separated from us during the first weeks, it was most comforting as parents to know how much Ms. Jaime/Ms. Janice, his first year teachers, cared for his well-being, updating us on a daily basis on how well he’s adjusting (such as eating, napping) through face-to-face, paper-based as well as email communications. This level of attentiveness is what distinguishes M.A.T.S.S and we can’t recommend them - Thanks for the wonderful memories!"

"Dear M.A.T.S.S. Summer Family,
We just wanted to take this opportunity to Thank You for the fun-filled summer you provided our daughter. This was Isla's first time going to summer camp and it was a great experience for ALL of us! Your staff is so warm, helpful and inviting...as is the seamless drop-off process! LOL
Isla made many new friends and enjoyed lots of new experiences. You kept her body active and her mind activated. New situations and experiences are not always easy for our child, so it is a great credit to all the team members that she adjusted so nicely. What else could a parent ask for.
We are sad to say goodbye to you today and hope to see you all again soon. Enjoy the rest of the summer and hopefully take some time to relax before the new school year begins.""
Best Regards, Lauren and Chris LoBello, XOXO Isla Grace LoBello
"Thank you so much for making Hunter’s third birthday party so memorable!
It may have been Hunter’s second year in a row celebrating her birthday at MATSS, but I can’t picture celebrating any other way. To see Hunter genuinely smile, from start to finish, meant the world to our family. The party may have only lasted under two hours, but we know these are memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you for making the day so easy, and run so smooth; all we had to do was show up with the birthday girl and the rest was taken care of.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and of course Hunter’s!"
Love, The Grobers

Thank You so much!"

"Aarav had a really good time at M.A.T.S.S. this past year. He really looked forward to going to Ms. Annie's class and enjoyed his time there. The tracing and art work he practiced at school were really amazing. Without much practice at home he is able to write most of the letters. He loves to write the letters and often makes cards for us with letters and shapes. We love to see his creativity.We are looking forward to sending him in the fall. He will enjoy the summer with his grandparents, some camp and some travel. Again, Thank you for your patience and accommodations during the past 2 years Aarav has spent at M.A.T.S.S. Syosset."
Yours truly, Vinayak Shekhar Family
"We just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great staff and facility you operate. We had my son's 3rd birthday at MATSS gym this past Saturday. We truly didn't know what to expect because we have never been there. When we went to check out the place, Paulyne was super helpful. The week before the party we spoke with Sam who wrote down every detail of what we wanted to make our party perfect. It was such an AMAZING party. On the day of the party Paulyne and her team were extremely attentive, enthusiastic and made sure all of the children were having fun while being safe. As a parent, it was nice to sit back and watch the party run super smooth. We've received so many compliments from family and friends, all of the kids had a blast. One of the parents even asked if Paulyne was the owner (that's the level of service she provided)!. Thank you to all of those that helped make my son's 3rd birthday a special one. We can't wait to come back to MATSS!"
Sincerely, The Adamo Family
"My husband & I just want to thank you and all of Brandon's teachers in the Toddler Gym Class. He really enjoys school and he's learning a lot. He always talks about it. There are many nursery schools in Bellmore but we made the right decision sending him to MATSS. Such a warm and nurturing environment. We will continue to send him here until he's ready for Pre-K"
Thank you again, the Irizarry Family
"I just wanted to drop a note to let you know my children are having a GREAT TIME AT CAMP ! Summer and Cassidy come home every day super excited to share all the fun activities at M.A.T.S.S. Camp. All your staff is amazing! My heart is happy knowing my kids are safe and stimulated with caring individuals. I am very grateful to have my 2nd family-- the M.A.T.S.S. Family."

"After being part of the M.A.T.S.S. Kids' Gym of Syosset family for over 6 years, I am sad to say that the third and final Curto child (Sabrina Curto) will be leaving MATSS this summer. Sabrina's last day at M.A.T.S.S. will be Friday Aug. 21, 2015. It has truly been a pleasure working with every single member of M.A.T.S.S.. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and they all have truly made Gabriella, Christian and Sabrina's experience at M.A.T.S.S. a time to remember.
Thank you for the fond memories, and for taking such excellent care of my children."
Regards, Julie Curto
"As our third and last child prepares to graduate Pre-K at M.A.T.S.S., we wanted to thank you all for the past 13 years we have spent with you. We could not have asked for a better preschool experience for our children and for us as parents!
Almost 13 years ago, I walked in as a new mother with my baby for our first mommy and me class. It was in your old location and Miss Nancy was the class leader. I had come to your facility on the recommendation of an old friend and was so pleased with the class, but as most new moms do, I had to do my research. I took classes all over with my first child and explored all preschool options, exhaustively."
With love, The Feigenbaum Family
"It is our pleasure to take this opportunity to describe the rewarding experience that both our children enjoy at M.A.T.S.S GYM. It has been more than three years since our older son started preschool as a two year old at M.A.T.S.S and to this very day our expectations still exceed anything we could have ever expected. The teachers and entire staff are dedicated in creating a safe and healthy haven for each and every child, working hard to instill the strongest of values. Both our son’s have developed individualized and meaningful relationships with all their teachers and as parents we are grateful with the level of care, commitment and love they receive on a daily basis. This devotion to their socialization and early education will lay the groundwork for their schooling in the years to come. Thank you M.A.T.S.S for having such a positive impact and sharing these precious years with our family."
Warmest regards, The Yedvarb Family
"M.A.T.S.S. Kids' Gym of Syosset is an excellent center that truly has everything for my children. I was first introduced to M.A.T.S.S. over four years ago when my oldest daughter started a gymnastics program. My husband and I were so happy with M.A.T.S.S. that we enrolled our children in their summer camp program, nursery school, and most recently their day-care program. As a busy working mom of three children (ages 2, 4, and 6), M.A.T.S.S. has something wonderful for all my children year-round. The entire M.A.T.S.S.’ staff are caring individuals that are dedicated to the well-being of our children. I feel at ease knowing that my children are being taken care of in a safe, friendly and fun environment. I highly recommend M.A.T.S.S. Kids' Gym."
"We wanted to write a little note of thanks as our daughter finishes her time at M.A.T.S.S.. We have enjoyed watching her grow and mature over the past 2 years. She always came home happy and ready to show off the new things she learned and is absolutely ready for Kindergarten thanks to you and your wonderful staff. Her teachers have had a profound effect on her and she has developed a great love of school and learning that I know she will carry with her. I have already recommended M.A.T.S.S. to friends and family and I will continue to do so. Please pass our great appreciation along to all your staff and enjoy a well deserved break this summer!"
Sincerely, Angelo & Katherine Picatagi
