Maple Tree Preschool’s certified and degreed teachers bring a wealth of teaching experience to your little ones. Our teachers and teacher aides hold Red Cross certification for both CPR and first aid.  All Maple Tree employees have at least 16 hours of early childhood professional development each year. All staff have been screened through a criminal background check to insure the safety of all students. The staff members have been selected both for their nurturing characters and for their dedication to Christ.
