Why choose Maples
At Maples Early Learning we are influenced by the Reggio Emilia Philosophy and aim to be a step ahead with our educational programs. Our educators are deeply inspired by the approach and our service philosophy and believe that children have the right too:
- Have the ability to engage freely between the indoor and outdoor environments
- The right to explore an environment that is presented with respect and is aesthetically pleasing
- Explore and learn through a play-based approach
- Explore their learning through the 100 languages of children
- Explore the environment through investigation with the natural world
Maples Early Learning is a sister centre of Explorers Early Learning that is privately owned and operated by local families.
Children are at the heart of everything we do

Maples early learning deliver the best quality care and education I’ve experienced. Both of my children attend this service and for a brand new centre I am astounded with how settled the centre is already.
The minute you walk into the centre and are greeted by the director or owners, you get the sense of family and feel completely comfortable with dropping your children off.
Maples early learning have delivered on every aspect when it comes to the service, from the warm and welcom you get the minute you walk in, to the beautiful spaces and experiences for children to engage in.
Not to mention my children don’t want to leave when it’s home time.
This is a centre you want your child to attend.
Well done to everyone involved with building the foundations of a beautiful service.
I could not have imagined how happy I would be after moving my daughter to this centre. She is a lot happier and does not seem to upset when I leave. She is always happy to see me when I go pick her up but she never wants to leave. The staff are excellent. Their communication is great. I love the pictures that the team add to their app. You don’t feel so far away.
The best part is my daughter really seems to be learning so much faster. She answers questions and follows direction really well now. Her understanding of her surroundings has really improved.
Maples is a team you can trust. I have no regrets at all moving my daughter here. Very happy!
Can’t recommend highly enough. It wasn’t an easy experience with my kiddo in the beginning (his first time and full of daylong tears). However the staff there made it possible finally. They encouraged me and offered advice on how to work on it in coordination with them. He’s still not totally settled but with all the support we are getting, definitely getting there. I also like the activities and experiences provided for the kids and the outdoor play area is amazing. After having a disappointing centre experience previously, Maples have certainly given me confidence that i can trust someone else with my child. Thankyou Maples.
My son is currently in his first week at Maples and I can’t say enough good things about this centre. We changed him from another centre that we were not 100% happy with and I honestly wish we had done it sooner.
All the staff we have met so far have been absolutely lovely, the communication is great (we love seeing photos everyday!) and most importantly my son is so happy there.
Thank you to Maples for making the transition so seamless for us. We couldn’t be happier with this centre.
If you are looking for a centre that is following hygiene procedures amist all this craziness Maples is it.
The staff have been ontop of it.
The minute you walk in not only can you see how clean it is but you can smell it. The educators are working around the top keeping not only their rooms clean but also hearing them encourage children and families to follow hygiene procedures. They are always keeping families updated. Well Done.
