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.

Our Story

Maple Bear is one of the fastest growing international educational brands in the world. Maple Bear Singapore is no exception, as it has rapidly expanded its operations from one centre in January 2014 to now more than 40 centres.

Own a School

The demand for high quality bilingual immersion education is growing globally as more and more parents aspire 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. Under the guidance of our education director, Mrs Patricia Koh, the curriculum is further refined and translated to suit the children of Singapore. At the preschool level, Maple Bear delivers a student-focussed learning system based on Canadian and Singaporean educational pedagogy and best practices.

Bilingual (Immersion) Education

Bilingual Immersion methodology is used in Maple Bear schools to develop competence in languages. This means that children learn to listen, speak, read, and write in both English and Mandarin by surrounding them with conversation and instruction in both languages.

Play-Based Learning

Children are naturally curious about their world and are eager to learn about it. They need to manipulate, explore, and experiment with real objects. Play is the serious work of children.

Outcome-Based Curriculum

The Maple Bear curriculum is designed to achieve specific and measurable outcomes in respect to literacy and other subject areas, such as maths and science, through a purposeful and intentional approach.
