About Us

The WhizKidz Story

Ms. Martha taught first grade for two years before having her first son Gianpaul. After being home with him for 8 months, she began a small morning preschool program out of her home. She enjoyed it and saw she was having much success. She formalized her in home preschool and began “WhizKidz Preschool & Daycare” in 2007 out of her home.

Through the years as the preschool grew she continued to expand her couple students into several age groups and hired teachers. Today nine years later Now Named: WhizKidz is a preschool center in Phoenix in a stand alone school building which houses 80 students and a amazing staff.

Just as WhizKidz has grown in the past 9 years Ms. Martha wishes to continue her vision of education young minds and building character in her students through solid preschool program motivating and inspiring children to flourish!

It is my vision that each child that enters our schools, joins a community of children, families and teachers. Engaging in the joy, curiosity and wonder of childhood
