We’re so glad you’re interested in Maple Lane for your child’s early learning experiences. We are a licensed private preschool that prides itself on our flexible program, caring and devoted staff, and emergent learning program. We enjoy discovering the where, what, and why children are learning and meeting them right where they are in their journey. Our job is not to teach the skills and academics, but to provide an environment where children can learn these skills and academics on their own at their own pace. We view children as competent and capable beings, who, with the right learning environment and supportive educators, can achieve so much more than just meeting the milestones in their development.
Registration And Orientation
Registration for September enrolment begins each Spring. Families who currently attend Maple Lane will be given priority for the next school year’s spots in February. At our Spring Open House, new families can register for spaces in the program, beginning March 1st. We continue to register throughout the year, depending on availability. However, registration will close by March 1st for the current school year. No other changes to a child’s registered days may occur. A registration fee must accompany the registration form for each family that registers. This is an annual fee due at registration. All fees can be found on our website or on the enrolment form. Families are also required to complete a Nippising Developmental Screening with the registration for the child’s most recent age passed. This is a mandatory intake screen, which allows us to understand where you see your child at developmentally and address and areas you are concerned about.
Maple Lane provides a morning program from 9:00 am – 11:30 am, Monday – Friday. Afternoons programs are available based on enrolment and typically run from 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm, Tuesday – Thursday afternoons. Throughout the school year (Sept. – June) Maple Lane hosts several family fun events and concerts. See the school calendar and “What We Offer” page in our Enrolment Package.
Children between 2 ½ – 5 years are eligible to attend Maple Lane. Children are required to be toilet trained, as our facility and licensing agreement do not accommodate diaper changing. If an accident occurs, staff reserve the right to call the parent/guardian to come change the child into clean clothing.
At Maple Lane Nursery School, our holistic approach supports a belief that each person should be valued and respected for their individual experiences, strengths, and innate potential. We commit to supporting every person to accomplish their own objectives, to engage in personal growth, and to seek fulfillment in a way that is most meaningful for them.
