Winter 2019/2020

Hello! These are exciting times at  MAD Academy! Starting at the beginning of last year we launched our new learning programme in class. We harness the power of music and dance to help your child develop in the eight key areas of learning, which are aligned to the government’s s Early Years Learning Framework. Our classes are still packed full of music, movement and MADness but our songs, dances and activities now have a fun learning focus each half term. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to know more!

The Winter/Spring Term started on Monday January the 6th and will run up to Friday the 3rd of April 2020. For more information on classes please contact Kate on 01753 830162 or email For regular updates and information please 'like' the MAD Academy Windsor Facebook page.

"A really big THANK YOU for Raya's 1st birthday party. All the mummies and daddies as well as all my party guests really enjoyed the MAD slot and thought you were great!. I am sure Raya will look backon her birthday video and be really happy to see how much fun she had! It was lovely to have someone she was familiar with too. It will also be a great memory."
