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.


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.


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.


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.

Bilingual education is applicable to all children! Bilingual education is applicable to all children! 🐻 In most cases, there are no obstacles to learning a second language.

In addition, the Canadian methodology is highly inclusive. Whether children have difficulties learning or are super developed beyond their peers, the individual learning style of each student is taken into consideration in the learning process.

For the young bilingual child there is no demand for special brain skills, nor any specific mental process different from those found in a child who knows only their native language.

If you study at Maple Bear, you would have fluent English and a way of reasoning in two languages. Don't pass up the opportunity to offer this to your child!

Your child's future is priceless 🇨🇦 Investin Your child's future is priceless 🇨🇦 Investing in your child's early years education is the key to a better future.

This phase is about much more than learning the necessary skills to prepare for elementary school.

At preschool, children learn how to interact with their peers, teachers and parents. They also begin to discover interests that they hold for a lifetime. They begin to learn essential skills such as listening, sharing and taking turns with others.

Choosing your child's school is the first step towards a more promising and successful future.
