Maple Tree Academy is located in a large and beautifully remodeled facility. All considerations were given to create an "open space" for children to explore and create.  The Atelier at Maple Tree is a distinctive feature fostering the children's ability to fully engage in the arts.  The large outdoor space is shaded and designed with many creative and nature-based activities.  As a Reggio Emilia-inspired program, where the environment is the "third teacher", we have created a rich setting so our children can learn, play and grow.

Our Field Maples are ages 2-3 years and are excited about the world around them.....

Our Sugar Maples are ages 3 months-2 years and bring so much sweetness to our day!.....

"Maple Tree is an amazing place!  Beautiful facility, friendly staff, and the best Director, Stephanie. We are so pleased for our little daughter to be a Sugar Maple.  She is growing wonderfully just like a Maple sapling; learning and discovering.  We are excited for her to becoming a Field Maple soon!!!  Knowing how hard it is to find a quality child care program, a tour is a must to all interested parents."


Maple Tree Academy is inspired by the philosophies and curriculum of Reggio Emilia, Soka Education, and RIE principles for infants.  At their core, these early childhood educational philosophies put young children and their curiosity at the center....
