Hello and welcome to the Maple Class page. In Maple Class we have 6 children and 6 adults. We follow a sensory, process based learning curriculum. This means that it's not about what we make or the end product, but about the things we learn during the process. All of our activities focus on developing our communication and physical skills.
We have lots of fun in Maple Class, keep an eye on our page to see some of the exciting things we have been up to!
