Imagine a school where young children hike trails, climb trees, design skyscrapers, paint masterpieces, play in a band, and spend the day immersed in a nurturing, language-rich learning environment. The Maple Street School’s Prekindergarten program, by design, allows your child to explore, play, imagine, create, and experience the joys of childhood while developing their foundational knowledge while learning how to become respectful and caring classmates and friends.  

For some children, this will be their first experience with structured days away from home. Others may have attended daycare or preschool elsewhere. Regardless of background, our warm and welcoming environment provides flexibility, structure, and individual attention to help them make the transition.
