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
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.
With much gratitude, Lori Brennan
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. I think back to all the time and effort I put into looking for what I thought would be the perfect preschool for my child when the entire time the perfect place for us was just where we started.
Of course we wanted our children to be prepared academically for kindergarten, which they all were more than prepared, but academics are only one piece of the puzzle. They needed to move and be exposed to sports and all sorts of activities year round as well and M.A.T.S.S. offered so much not only during the school day but after school as well. Our first two kids even continued to take classes there after they entered elementary school so they could stay connected to the great friends they made in preschool. They grew as students and people and also had the space to have fun and learn to love physical and artistic activity.
More than the academics, arts, and sports, the real reason we chose to have our three children spend their preschool years with you is the staff. From that first mommy and me class with Miss Nancy and the first separation class with Miss Susan, we knew we were leaving our children in the very best hands. They treated our children as their own and still make them feel like family when they come back to pick up their little sister. We always felt they were not only safe, but truly loved, and for that we cannot thank you enough.
We would love to thank each staff member for the impact they have had on our family. Every one of them has touched our lives in some way. So, as the tears start to roll, we move on to a new phase of our lives, but we will be back to visit often since we cannot imagine our lives without our M.A.T.S.S. family!
Thank you for being a part of our family for the past 13 years and we look forward to keeping you in our lives! We wish you all the best as you continue your loving work molding little ones into bright, fun, active, social, kindergarteners!
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
