Last Wednesday Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for The Park @MTM (My Tutor and More). The Park @MTM is early childhood education facility with both preschool and afterschool care. When school is not in session the facility is an indoor playground open to the public and available for private events.
“Tina is very involved in the community. This is a safe environment with educational opportunities and plenty to keep the kids busy. That is important as a parent and a business owner in the community. For the parents that do have kids. She has a great partnership with other businesses and they support each other. She is a great role model and an excellent business model. This is kind of relationship that makes businesses stronger when you help each other in community partnerships,” said Gina Pence, President, Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce. “Tina knows how to incorporate business and family.”
Attendees had the opportunity to meet other businesses that hosted at The Park @MTM and tour the facility. The Park @MTM partners with local businesses to round out what they offer to include art and fitness classes.
“We are excited to branch out and be part of the Harker Heights Chamber of Commerce. We want to be in the community and support everyone as equally as we can. We are looking forward to our “Back to School Bash” on August 13 at Carl Levin Park, last year the City of Harker Heights really supported us,” said Tina Capito, owner, My Tutor and More. “We have preschool, after school programs, summer camps, fundraisers, sports parties and birthday parties.”
Refreshments from The Park @MTM’s snack bar were provided for attendees to sample to include pizza. Entertainment from plush mascots kept the event exciting and inviting. Attendees also had the chance to participate in “Bubble Ball” and children were invited to try the bounce and inflatable features. Tap Tap Art School had their bus onsite for attendees to visit as well.
“This place is awesome! I have brought my coworkers kids here. They love to play and we get to play free pool while they play,” said Terri Spears, owner, Minuteman Press.
Capito is known in the community for willingness to give and help out. She pioneered the “Back to School Bash” which collects backpacks and school supplies for Killeen Independent School District HARP. HARP is a program that helps with making sure homeless students have everything they need to be able to stay in school.
