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.
