Due to the potential spread of COVID-19, The Maples Academy (JK – 8) will be continuing education online after March Break until April 5, 2020. The Childcare Centre is closed as mandated. Further updates will be provided to members of The Maples community by e-mail.
At The Maples, we are committed to providing the best care for your young ones. The Maples Childcare Centre is a full day licensed daycare program that is made up of highly qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators and staff. Our program is designed to prepare children for future academic success.
We believe in the importance of early learning by encouraging children to be curious, expressive, and attentive. Children learn essential skills such as communication, teamwork, focus and making connections through interactive play.
Our Toddler Room offers the exploration of all five senses by aiding toddlers in their discovery of the world around them. Toddlers are introduced to letters and numbers through fun songs and circle time activities. The toddlers are exposed to a variety of emergent activities daily to enhance their fine motor, creative skills, language, gross motor and sensory exploration. The foundation of learning is introduced to the toddlers gearing them for their discovery as preschoolers.
Preschool Room (2.5 years - 6 years)
Our two preschool rooms are divided into a junior and senior class. Children engage in daily French activities; giving them the foundation they need to carry on their knowledge of French words and language.
Our preschool program involves exercises in planning, exploring and reflecting on original ideas and work to increase a higher understanding of the material. The preschool program is emergent, it expands on the interest of the child, and challenges their thinking, encouraging them to explore, ask questions and discover.
Teachers customize material to the children's skills, needs and interests when planning learning objectives and preparing children for their journey in kindergarten.
