Maple Bear Academy is LA’s premier facility for modern parents desiring a unique educational daycare experience for their infants, toddlers and preschoolers in a clean, safe and stimulating home environment.
Director Susanna Meldrum is a seasoned professional, with over 28 years of experience in early childhood education and leadership. She founded Maple Bear Academy in 1984 in Ontario, Canada when her own daughter was in need of quality early childhood education. Her vision has since grown and the day care relocated to sunny Los Angeles, California. Curriculum is founded on an international twist of Canadian, American, and European culture and educational principles, opening children’s eyes early on about the world and humanity.
At Maple Bear Academy, we understand the needs and concerns of contemporary families wanting only the best in early childcare. We also appreciate how difficult leaving your child with someone new can be. That is why we offer an unprecedented opportunity for parents of registered students to actually see what their children are doing during the day while they are at daycare. Prior to your child’s first day, you will be given exclusive password protected access to our Parent Portal, where you may login and observe our structured activities over live webcam. We are so confident your child will be thrilled with our exciting, diverse program we invite you to see for yourself. This gives whole new meaning to open door policy, and is great fun for parents!
We offer a full time program for infants through preschoolers. Our hours of operation are 7:15am to 6:15pm Monday through Friday. Please feel free to contact us to schedule a tour, we do not allow drop-ins.
Welcome to Maple Bear Academy! Your little one will love it here!
