MapleBear’s child-focused learning system prepares your child for primary school and beyond.
As a parent, you want a strong educational foundation for your kids – one that prepares them for life and ignites their passion for learning beyond their primary school years.
Renowned educator and early learning expert Patricia Koh understands the importance of a child’s early years. In 2013, she established MapleBear Singapore, which offers a well-rounded curriculum as well as a safe and fun environment for kids to learn.
Today, Patricia, who has more than 40 years of experience and is a sought-after speaker and advisor around the world, leads over 40 MapleBear schools across the island.
The MapleBear curriculum provides an immersive, bilingual (English-Mandarin) learning experience designed for children between two months and six years of age. It is also based on the best standards of early childhood education from Canada and Singapore.
Like Singapore, Canada is consistently ranked among the top countries for early childhood education. European educators such as Friedrich Froebel, Maria Montessori and Margaret McMillan all helped shape early education in Canada.
Even today, their beliefs about child development and their respect for a child’s individuality are reflected in Canadian preschools. Many early childhood programmes in Canada are also based on Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget’s studies on children’s intellectual development.
Drawing from the best of Canadian education, MapleBear embraces children’s early years as the most important part of their holistic development, respects their individuality, and inspires their love of learning in a bilingual environment.
Specific learning outcomes to help your child succeed in life
MapleBear equips early learners with specific skills that ensure their success, not just while they are in school, but also beyond their formal education years in both local and international settings. Among these skills are curiosity and the ability to ask questions so that they can discover the answers and solve problems on their own. The ability to express their thoughts and try new things without the fear of failure are equally important.
The teachers at MapleBear follow specific lesson plans and are trained to develop these crucial skills in your child, taking the time to listen to and encourage children to share their ideas.
MapleBear teachers are also constantly creating new experiences for the children to help bring out their creativity and inspire them to think outside of the box. For instance, when asked to draw a house, the children at MapleBear know that it need not be a house with windows and a door. Rather, a house can mean any number of things, like a box for a teabag or even a book that houses a story.
A fun, safe and engaging, bilingual environment
If you want your child to be fluent in both English and Mandarin languages, it is reassuring to know that MapleBear offers a bilingual immersive experience, with qualified teachers of both languages always present in the classroom. Your little ones will have the opportunities to listen, understand, speak, read and write in two languages meaningfully.
MapleBear also sets excellent teacher-child ratios across all levels, to ensure that children receive the best attention during their early years. The teachers are friendly, warm and professional, and are trained to give personalised care so that your child always feels supported, understood, and engaged.
