Highly recommended!! I visited a couple day cares before visiting MB and I about freaked out and was contemplating on being a home at stay mom. I literally felt a sense of relief as I walked into MB. Maureen (Director) was great at giving me a tour and making me feel comfortable. Lori (Assistant Director) has also been absolutely great! They are very organized, clean, and concerned about quality care. My son's direct caregiver is absolutely wonderful! I couldn't be happier with this locations attention to detail and super clean services.

I researched child care centers for almost a year. I gave up looking because of all the centers I didn't trust putting my children there. (I'm super crazy picky!) so we did in-homecare until recently, when it was no longer an option for us. In my search I stumbled upon Maple Bear - or as my two year old calls it, teddy bear school! (They wear uniform shirts with a bear holding a Canadian flag) I am impressed with the cleanliness, friendliness and caring environment. My 1 year old and two year old go there 2 days per week. We are happy we made the decision to put the kiddos there.  my daughter asks to go every day! Highly advise any parent to go and visit/tour!

We just enrolled our son in this daycare.   So far, we are very happy with what we have experienced.  We were not really looking to switch daycare, but my sister mentioned Maple Bear to us because they offer bilingual education.  Our son is only 6 months old,  so we researched this daycare for future enrollment only.    We then opted for this daycare because we saw they offer a 3:1 infant to teacher ratio for a comparable cost of what we were paying at our previous daycare for a 5:1 ratio.

Also, the staff seem very engaged with the children and they have a nice facility and outdoor area.   This is a brand new daycare center so they don't have a lot of kids yet (a plus in our book because our son is so young, more attention for him!)   I'm hoping the enrollment numbers go up so they stay in business - I think they offer a much higher quality product for a comparable cost of what you would pay at other daycares.  I recommend checking them out!!

I am so grateful for Maple Bear!  Compared to our previous daycare, Maple Bear is a night/day difference.  He gets better care here - the infant teachers are excellent -- caring, personable and knowledgable.  I normally don't write updates to reviews but they have really provided my husband and I with piece of mind for our little one :).

Very very pleased with my experience at Maple Bear.  The entire staff is very friendly and take great care of our little one.  The teacher to infant ratio is 3:1 (up to 1 year of age) which was a big selling point for us.  At our old day care it seemed our little one was always confined to an infant chair...at Maple Bear they are constantly engaged with him teaching or playing.

After conducting thorough research and touring other daycare centers, last year I enrolled my 2 year old into Maple Bear Learning Center.  Both my 2 year old and I love this center.  The directors and the teachers are very friendly and have excellent follow-through.  They are able to anticipate our needs and keep me informed on how he is doing.  The facility is gorgeous!  Brand new, modern, advanced technology.  An excellent environment for continuous learning and development.  I have been extremely satisfied with my switch to Maple Bear.  My suggestion for you is to go and tour the facility and meet the directors and staff.

Great find! My 16 month old daughter just started going to this daycare a few weeks ago and we couldn't be happier! They have a great curriculum, she has already learned so much. The teachers and staff are all great with her. They really seem to listen to the parents too. Big bonus is she also gets a bilingual education! Overall, very pleased with this daycare!
