My son Evan started preschool at MishMash when he was only 33 months old and he has LOVED it since the very first day! I know that he thinks it is fun, but I also think he enjoys the routines at school and being able to exercise his independence away from me. He now packs his own snack in the morning on school days and is often ready for school at least an hour early (he is only 3). On his days off he asks if he can go to school or if teacher Michelle can come over to our house for a play-date. Teacher Michelle is full of energy and never runs out of great ideas to keep the kids engaged.
Recently they have been learning about outer space and he often talks to me about this at home. Mrs. Leah is very sweet too. He loves to snuggle with her and talks about her at home as well. Evan and I both love the class parties (the last one turned into an awesome dance party - so fun) and the art he brings home is adorable. Teacher Michelle and Mrs. Leah really are fabulous with the kids, I mean who else could take 10 three year olds to a restaurant for lunch and have them all behave and use their table manners? What a great life skill to teach them! My only regret is that I didn't sign him up for more classes per week, and I can't wait for next year so he can be part of the yoga classes.
Thank you Michelle & Mrs. Leah, MishMash Mom Sasha.
We love MishMash!!
My daughter Henley's first introduction to MishMash was for the summer Bug Camp. It was her first time going to school and a perfect introduction to the preschool program that she would be starting there in the fall. I cannot say enough about MishMash and the role that Michelle has played in helping Henley become the confident and playful little girl that she is today.
The environment is so inviting and the atmosphere is always playful and fun. I will forever treasure all of the crafts Henley came home with and she is still so proud of the many art projects that she created. I think my favourite MishMash memory is seeing how excited she is to step into the classroom every day and the hundreds of songs and dances that Henley still performs from the MishMash music program. I have always felt that Michelle takes a real vested interest in Henley's development and the amount of fun that she is having, and I really do believe that she makes an effort to really get to know every kid in her classes. I love the detailed report cards, Christmas plays, MishMash parties and the stories Henley comes home with at the end of the day. Thank you Michelle and MishMash for everything!!
Sending Henley to preschool was bittersweet for me, but her time with Michelle at MishMash has been phenomenal and we will never forget the smiles. Thank you!!!
MishMash preschool has been a wonderful experience for our family. Michelle and Leah are amazing with the children, and really take the time to understand and work with each child’s unique characteristics. The curriculum is great and has kept our son interested and eager to learn. We are so happy that we decided to go with MishMash and would recommend it to anyone.

We have had the pleasure of our twins attending MishMash since the middle of October. They are always elated for school days. They have such enthusiasm when they talk about their friends and teachers.
They bring home creative arts and crafts, learn about many things, like the planet song, do science projects such as the growth of an apple, and have different teachers come in for music, yoga and pottery. The group's of ten make for more one on one time with each child, which is great for my highly active/low attention span kids. We will definitely be sending our younger child to MishMash once she is old enough.
Sincerely, Brandy James
We have been going to MishMash since they first opened at their original Kaos Kids location. My little one loves Michelle and loves the space she has created. He is now part of her preschool program and he looks forward to it every week. Michelle and her staff are wonderful and they have created a great environment for little people to feel safe and happy to explore and learn. I would highly recommend MishMash to any family in Squamish. Jennifer Kardynal
