Maven Lane has been welcoming children and families since 1994. Today, we are the third largest non-profit early learning and care centre under one roof in Canada. We are leaders in care and education and we are committed to enriching the lives of both the children and families we serve. We offer a broad range of diverse programs and services. Highly trained teams of professional staff continually search for the most innovative and effective methods for learning. Individualized strategies are implemented to help each child grow and develop as enthusiastic and confident learners. We pride ourselves on our collaborative approach to guiding and caring for children; families and educators work together to provide an optimal learning environment for children to reach their full potential. It goes without saying that the most effective way of getting involved in your child’s life at Maven Lane is to commit and, well, get involved!
Originally located in the basement of Beairsto Elementary, we are now the proud owners of a retired elementary school building located in the heart of Vernon. This purchase has enabled us to expand our programs and services to better meet the needs of Vernon’s families. We take every advantage of our proximity to downtown; it is empowering the children and educators to become active citizens within our community.
And now, as our 20th anniversary is approaching, we are seeing our vision coming to fruition. I have been with the organization for 16 years and have enjoyed every moment of this journey. Personally, it all began with a practicum placement in one of our programs. From there it blossomed to include both valuable and memorable experiences in several programs and roles within the Society. Today, as the Executive Director, I am proud to be associated with an organization which consistently strives to be the best, and which is truly making a difference in the lives of children; there is no better investment than this!
We hope that you will find the care and education we provide a rewarding experience for your child. Should you have any questions or suggestions I encourage you to contact me. My door is always open. Join us and let us be part of the most important years of your child’s life…Welcome to Maven Lane.
