Our Story

The idea to develop Maple Bear Canadian schools grew out of the work of the Canadian Education Centre Network (CECN), a non-profit organization supported by the Government of Canada and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada.

Canadian Education

Canada’s education system consistently ranks among the best in the world. In 2018, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked Canada #1 in the English-speaking world in science, math and reading.

Own a School

The demand for high quality bilingual education is growing globally as more and more parents achieve the economic means to give their children a head start in life. Educators and entrepreneurs alike around the world are choosing to meet that demand by investing in a Maple Bear school for its world class Canadian methodology and because of the international reputation of Canadian bilingual education.

Curriculum & Methodology

The Maple Bear curriculum is written by our team of Canadian educational experts and continually updated with the latest in Canadian educational practices. At the preschool level, Maple Bear delivers a student-focussed English immersion learning system based on Canadian educational pedagogy and best practices. At the elementary, middle and high school levels we deliver a bilingual program that ensures students can continue their studies in their home country or abroad.

Infant Care & Early Learning

Bear Care Infant Care & Early Learning is a Maple Bear program for children from 6 weeks to 24 months of age. The Bear Care program’s warm, welcoming and nurturing learning environment is designed to keep the infant safe while allowing for exploration and discovery.

Preschool

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child's experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future opportunities. Maple Bear sets high standards to ensure children's readiness for elementary school.

Elementary

Maple Bear has developed an excellent, hands on, rigorous and relevant elementary curriculum in each subject area based on the highly successful Canadian approach to learning and instruction. The Elementary Program is designed to educate the whole child - physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

Secondary

The Maple Bear high school program reflects current research in adolescent education. The challenge is to facilitate learning while respecting the unique developmental stages and characteristics of young adolescents. Parents, teachers and school leaders have critical roles to play in the education of high school students.

Language development and acquisition at Maple Bear Language development and acquisition at Maple Bear 🇨🇦

Children enter Maple Bear School with some basis in their home language. In learning their first language children pass through several stages in predictable order: listening, developing understanding, speaking, reading and writing. Successive stages begin while preceding stages are still in development. When Maple Bear children learn English as a new language their development in English proceeds through the same stages in the same sequence as in learning their first language. Research shows that learning two languages at an early age offers both linguistic and cognitive advantages.

Immersion methodology is used in Maple Bear schools to develop competence in English. This means that children learn to listen, speak, read, and write in English by surrounding them with conversation and instruction in English. Children learn in English right from the first day.

Literacy, which includes listening, speaking, reading and writing, is one of the most important goals of the Maple Bear program.

Canada excels not only in studies in the English language but is also a world leader in bilingual education.

We don’t teach English; we teach in English. At Maple Bear, students begin learning English in preschool using a student-focused English immersion learning system based on Canadian educational pedagogy and best practises. At the elementary, middle and high school levels we deliver a bilingual program that ensures students can continue their studies in their home country or abroad.

Students don’t just memorize vocabulary in a Maple Bear classroom. This is a key difference between the programs offered at Maple Bear and ESL training offered at other schools. The Maple Bear program encourages natural and fluid communication in English. True bilingualism, according to the Maple Bear philosophy, means thinking and learning in another language.

Maple Bear, with its global presence, has many countries offering trilingual education as well, and in countries with English as the primary language, the bilingual component of the curriculum is taught in another language, such as Spanish in the USA.
