Our Program

The Maple Hill Play Garden is an inclusive, licensed family child care program

that nurtures the joy and wonder of a simple childhood.

In the spring and the fall we spend most of the morning outdoors

in almost any weather.

In this space, play is the child's most valued work.

We are located in Amherst, MA

and serve children ages 15 months* through 3 years.

The program runs Monday-Friday,

full days (8:30-3:30)

or half days (8:30-12:15).

Families may select two, three, four, or all five days.

We provide hearty, homemade, hot organic lunches

and a healthy afternoon snack.

The Maple Hill Play Garden operates on a school year schedule.

*Children must be both walking without assistance

and down to one afternoon nap/day

(the children here go down for nap around 12:45-1:00)
