Hello I am the new Child Care Coordinator!

I am a native to Maple River, grew up outside of Mapleton and graduate of Maple River class of 2011. I will be the coordinator for the Eagles Nest and transitioning to Eagle Care. I come from 10 years of medical background. I have a 4 year old son who is also in preschool as a Little Eagle! Maple River is such a great community and I can’t wait to start this journey!

An exciting day in Mrs. B’s room… their caterpillar hatched from its chrysalis and was released as a beautiful monarch butterfly today! 🦋 🐛


A wonderful rainy morning for a movie! We watched the movie “The Bad Guys” and enjoyed fresh movie theater popcorn. Huge shout out to the Wells Flame Theater for once again being so accommodating to our group of kids for this trip! 💙💚


Early childhood education builds the foundation for successful students! 🍎

Learning social emotional skills, building friendships, working on independence, self regulation, and building motor skills are all part of our day-to-day activities at the Eagle’s Nest Childcare Center of Mapleton. 🤩

Our Nest consists of a tight knit group of infants and toddlers that can’t wait to meet some new friends this fall! ❤️

Hello! My name is Morgan Myers and I am so excited to introduce myself as your new Childcare Coordinator for the Maple River School District! I have over 5 years of experience working as an Administrative Assistant/Billing Manager for Little Giants Early Learning Center in Blue Earth. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Minnesota with my Bachelors Degree in Healthcare Management. I was born and raised in Blue Earth, now raising my own three children in the area with my husband. Any free time I have is spent with my family, going camping, shooting photography, or working as a real estate agent.

Early childhood education is such a critical piece to a child's journey and development. My goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable childcare experience for the Mapleton area that allows your little one to build a solid foundation and confidence for the rest of their academic career.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions about our Eagle's Nest or Eagle Care programs.
I look forward to meeting all of you!
