Business Beat 3/31: Montessori preschool, Experimac and Jumped Up



The capital city has finally got someone to fix your iPad screen or your iPhone memory or your Mac computer.

And apparently for the tri-state area as well. People have traveled to Experimac from as far as Glendive, Montana.

Experimac opened its doors mid-March and the owner says it has been non-stop business since day one.

The chain is already in major cities like Pittsburgh and Atlanta.

In it’s first week, the store beat out 160 others in revenue and sales.

Every child learns differently. With a new preschool in the Magic City moms and dads can be sure their kids get the right amount of attention.

A Montessori-inspired preschool has opened in the Minot area by the name of Children’s House Preschool.

The program teaches child independence through individualized learning. Hours are Monday through Friday until noon. Toddlers learn math, geography, culture and practical life skills.

“If they come in at an early age and they are just so eager and greeted by all of these amazing materials that they’re just drawn to, I mean that can only boost them to want to learn more,” says the owner, Virginia Braaten.

A special summer program is offered with 2 week sessions for little ones. Parents can enroll through the Facebook page.


It was more than jumping at Jumped Up Friday. About 150 kids and their parents tested out the brand new play place showing off their jumping skills and pulverizing plastic alligators. 

Plenty of these kind of places have been popping up across western North Dakota, but this one has something a little out of the box.

It is equipped with a full-service hair salon for kids and kids jump free while they wait.
