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.

Academic support and training

The Maple Bear curriculum is developed by Canadian education experts who travel to train Maple Bear teachers around the world to deliver it properly. It is constantly being refreshed to reflect current educational trends.
Maple Bear school owners have access to this detailed turnkey curriculum developed from the ground up to reflect the very best in Canadian education practices and methodology. Canadian education experts mentor and assist in the start-up phase coupled with an in-person initial training of academic and administrative staff.

Business support

In addition to academic support, we also support school owners with the business and administrative practises of running a school. Our teams are on hand to provide guidance throughout the entire process of establishing and owning a school from writing a business plan, selecting or designing a facility, planning finances, to marketing and school administration.
School owners and administrators can access regular updates and improvements to curriculum, delivery of the academic program, school policies and administrative practices through a proprietary intranet site.

Quality assurance

Every Maple Bear school undergoes an annual quality assurance visit that covers everything from safety equipment to classroom performance. Our goal is to help Maple Bear school owners establish quality schools that will provide an excellent education experience to students for generations to come.
