"Founding and expanding Whiz Kidz has been one of the greatest joys and honors of my life,” says Founder and CEO Martha Picciao-Mazor. “Children are truly our future and having the privilege to play a part in a child's learning foundation humbles me. As we continue to grow together with our team, we can't wait to celebrate another 10 years!"

It was her dream and desire to merge her passion for teaching and entrepreneurship to serve families and lay a learning foundation for children. Since then, Whiz Kidz has opened five locations in Phoenix, Ahwatukee, Scottsdale and Mesa.

The schools offer flexible programs for infants, toddlers and school-aged kids, as well as various camps throughout the year.
