At Maple Bear we are very proud of our early childhood education program and we understand that the first six years of a child's life are the most important phase of their childhood. The education a child receives in their early years will be the foundation for their entire educational journey and personal growth.
Larger schools do not always maintain the small classroom sizes that we commit to, and thus teachers don't always have the time to focus individually on each child or maintain a program of early childhood education that truly prioritizes the child uniquely. Being a global franchise is also a huge advantage. It means that we take our quality and standards very seriously. All aspects of the school's design, safety, and operations are carefully determined and governed through a quality assurance system that is run monthly, quarterly, and annually. The classroom design, size, furniture height, books, toys and resources, all are specially considered and selected with advice and guidance from the Maple Bear academic experts. Similar to the standards of the facility and everything in it, all our staff are required to meet standards for qualifications and performance, and are given training at the start of their employment as well as throughout their career, provided by the Maple Bear academic leadership and by experts from the Maple Bear Global Schools faculty of trainers. These trainings are conducted on site at the school, as well as online, meaning there is a continuous professional development and talent improvement system, which is best in class for any education organization anywhere in the world.
And last but not least, our curriculum, which is based on the best practices of one of the world's top ranked education systems, the Canadian system -- is the leading choice of parents in over 35 countries, and this is for good reason. Our curriculum is designed by the same experts who come and train our teachers at every Maple Bear school worldwide, and they have been have been educators in the Canadian public education system for many years. They continue to innovate on what the curriculum has to offer, and to keep the teachers at every Maple Bear school informed of what the evolution of the education system for the 21st century learner requires.
At Maple Bear, we are confident that we have the best educational approach to develop the potential of each child and give them the right foundation to thrive.
