Maple Child Care Centre’s principal function is in providing a stimulating program to enhance the cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth of the children in the centre. Our centre provides programming geared to the needs of the individual child, both in-group and individual activities and experiences. Children are encouraged to recognize and express themselves in a way that is acceptable to our society. Our aim is in encouraging independence and nurturing the growth of a healthy positive self-image for each child.
