Maple Bear Penang
Maple Bear Penang, formerly known as The Learning Garden with her 20 years of track record – is reputed to be one of the best early childhood education centres in Penang. As the very first Maple Bear school in Malaysia, we welcome you to visit our extensive grounds complete with brand new facilities, a spacious learning environment and convenient access, tucked in the safe and quiet neighbourhood of York Road and the Governor’s Residence.
The founders of The Learning Garden, Mr Chow Chee Keong, whose passion for children and their wholesome development is well-known, and his wife, Ms. Chia Kien Eng, a highly sought-after speech pathologist with a private hospital here, built The Learning Garden to be a centre of excellence for pre-schoolers since her inception in 1999. Children who’ve walked through the doors of The Learning Garden have only good memories of their time here.
Come and find out more about the strong academic and language immersion programmes that are the hallmark of Maple Bear schools all over the world. We are committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating environment to children, giving them educational experiences that cultivate their love for lifelong learning.
Her teachers were all incredible and you can see their passion for teaching young children. We had to leave Malaysia but we will greatly miss Maple Bear, the school and the teachers, who helped my daughter through a difficult year of transition during the Covid pandemic. They not only tended to the children's academic needs but also taught them healthy social and emotional learning!
Our experience with Maple Bear has been nothing short of exceptional and I am grateful for the dedication and care that they have shown.
