Testimonials

  • Choosing to enrol our child at St. Joan or Arc Daycare Centre is a decision that we are truly grateful to have made. Stephanie and the team have done an outstanding job in creating a safe environment for our little one. The centre's core values resonated with us from the beginning; respect, diversity, kindness, compassion to name only a few. I can't say enough about the experience and talented staff! They are remarkable. They guide, nurture, develop, monitor, play, teach, provide consistency and allow the children to just be. They are all extremely supportive and are quick to answer any questions or address any concerns. We couldn't have made a better choice!

  • Our daughter has been part of the Before and After Program offered at Blessed Trinity through the Community of Maple Child Care Services since she started JK in the fall of 2015. The love, care, and support she has received has been outstanding. Our daughter has been diagnosed with a rare genetic syndrome and the staff have gone above and beyond our expectation, they provide excellent care and see to it that she is involved, they provide a true integrated experience. We love that though they are aware of her needs, they presume she can do things and treat her normal, that is so important to us. We are so grateful knowing that when we drop her off in the morning that she will be well taken care of and she is always greeted with big smiles and voices of enthusiasm that she is there that day. She is provided healthy and balanced morning and afternoon snacks, anyone who knows our daughter can appreciate why this is important. For the past two summers, we have also had her enrolled in the summer program which has also been an amazing experience. Also great staff with a variety of interesting activities to do, the visit to the splash pad has been her favourite. Without any hesitation, we fully recommend the Community of Maple Child Care Services to everyone!

  • The staff at Father John Kelly CCC are the most kind hearted, genuine people. My daughter started off in the Carebear room and now she is in SK attending the Before and After school program, my son is currently in the Carebear room, both my children enjoy the program. I have no worries when I drop off my children every morning because I know they are in great hands. I feel like I am dropping them off with family. They treat my kids like one of their own. I know the job is hard and I appreciate everything they do. I wouldn't want my children to go anywhere else.

  • My family has been part of Maple Child Care Community Centre since Toddler age. Since the very beginning, we have been very pleased to be part of this community that truly makes our children their number one priority. Over the years, the childcare implemented positive changes to ensure our children get the best possible care. They revisited the meal plans with the help of proper nutritionists, improved security in the building by installing cameras and buzzer access; organized numerous events that engage parents, teachers and students. The Centre is well organized and structured. They improved the communication with parents and teachers by their newsletters, email reminders and HiMama accounts for some classes. Every year, the staff we have had the pleasure to work with at Maple Childcare Community Centre has embraced our children whole-heartily. May it be toddler, pre-school or school age programs, each one delivers proper care, love and attention every child deserves.

  • I have two children that attend St. Joan of Arc CCC. My son Oliver, who is visually impaired, has been attending for 2 years, and my son Elliott started in January 2018. Prior to Oliver's enrollment at age 2, he was cared for at home and so I had no idea what to expect from a daycare but knew my expectations were high. The staff is beyond friendly and has accommodated Oliver's needs far beyond my highest expectations. They have genuinely made my son's progress and development a priority and Oliver loves it so much he doesn't want to come home! They truly care for him like one of their own, and are always welcoming to his affectionate nature. Elliott is definitely more "attached to mommy" babe, but his transition has blown me away. Although still fresh, he is seamlessly adapting to the program. I was so impressed with Oliver that I started Elliott even before turning 1! My experience with SJA CCC has been nothing short of fabulous, and I go to work knowing my boys are having the best time while learning. I recommend this daycare to everyone. I will be forever grateful for everything they have done, and continue to do daily for my boys.

  • We are happy with the before/after school program at St. Cecilia School. All the staff are amazing. They provide a fun learning environment and are very caring and extremely helpful. Our son has been enrolled since 2015. He enjoys going so much that sometimes when we go and pick him up he doesn't want to leave. Whenever there is a new change or adjustment happening, whether it be moving to a new room, or new teachers or new learning activities, they always continue to make sure that they keep parents informed. We are very appreciative and thankful that our son goes to a place where he is very welcomed and cared for. We are very happy seeing our son happy being there.

  • We have two children enrolled in the St. Joan of Arc Child Care Center - two boys, aged 2.5 and 3.5.

    As a parent it has been wonderful to see both children grow through the ranks from the infant room, toddler to preschool level over the last two or so years. The programs have been excellent - both children have accelerated their developmental skills, while learning to interact with other children and to develop friendships. We could not be happier with the social and cognitive progress achieved at St Joan of Arc, especially how proactive and helpful they have been in recommending additional resources and community support programs available to us.

    The teachers and staff have always been incredibly organized, helpful, caring and wonderfully interactive - offering excellent child care and strong supportive feedback to the parents. Not only do we receive verbal feedback daily, but the HiMama system provides an opportunity for further reflection and interaction with our kids' activities on a daily basis, including activities, photos, supplies and a meal review. The hours of the facility are also widely accommodating, allowing for both early and late schedules which help with both parents working full time. The facilities are very clean and organized, stocked with ample toys and other learning aids as well as a massive playground with soft turf and an oversized sandbox which our kids love. Joan of Arc also have one of the best security and locked door policies as well as very convenient parking, all the best of any other facility we have ever seen.

    All staff have also always been amazingly helpful with our children's special dietary needs - thoroughly reviewing, substituting and updating the meal plans when necessary and are proactive to make sure any food substitutes are always in stock. It was very important for us to find a daycare that offered healthy, freshly made in-house meals focusing on nutritious dietary options.

    We spent several months looking for a high-quality daycare when we moved to Maple and wanted the absolute best, 'home away from home' child day care for our two young children. We strongly believe that the St. Joan of Arc Child Care Centre provides the best daycare in the region and we would highly recommend the centre.

  • Father John Kelly Child Care Centre has been so great with both me and my daughter Ariana, since day one! All the staff couldn't be more caring and generous with their patience and time. Ariana who is about to turn 3, looks forward to going to school every single morning…and it's hard to get her to come home too! She loves her classmates and caregivers, with only having been there since last July! I can't thank the incredible network of the Maple Child Care Centre's enough. It's more than childcare at FJK CCC, it's a family.

  • I have two children in the before and after program, ages 4 and 7 and I am incredibly happy with their staff and programming. Both of my children enjoy their time and my oldest asks for a later pick up so that she can stay later to continue her activities. My youngest has special needs and from the beginning I was reassured that he will be fine and his needs will be met. Putting him in the before and after school program has been a wonderful experience for him. His caring staff and the students in his class have been very accepting, accommodating and loving towards him, for which I am beyond grateful. My kids are not just well cared for, but they are engaged and happy. I couldn't ask for more!

  • For over 10 years, Community of Maple Childcare has been this environment for our family - in all honesty, they have become an extension of our family. My children have grown up and continue to know that they are not only special, loved and appreciated at home but also at COMCCS. They are taught respect and appreciation for those around them and they also get that in return from all the staff at the centre. Miss Krystal has been involved with my kids from Day One and for that we are grateful. Her patience and consistent positive attitude have been above par. We would strongly recommend this centre to all families.

  • Over the last 4 years we have had a fantastic experience with the Community of Maple Child Care Services at Father John Kelly.

    The staff are without a doubt the most amazing, caring and dedicated professionals and always go above and beyond, they take the time to know your child and build bonds that will last beyond their child care days. Having our daughters in their care in the before/after school and part of the summer camp program, is like leaving them with family. We are VERY grateful for all their support and look forward to sharing our daughters milestones with them for many years to come.
