The Maple Bear vision is to provide a high quality pre-school education based on the Canadian philosophy and best practices that meet the expectations of global parents and is in conformity with local education regulations.
Maple Bear believes that “learning is fun” and recognizes that learning needs to be a pleasurable experience for children, and that children learn best through sensory experiences based on their curious nature and desire to explore the world. In a “learn, play, and discover” environment, children are offered a selection of structured, unstructured, and routine activities.

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. In Singapore, our students are immersed in English, plus a specially developed Mandarin curriculum that strongly emphasizes on bilingual language and literacy. Children learn in both English and Mandarin right from the first day.
By the end of Senior Kindergarten, Maple Bear students will be able to communicate effectively in both English and Mandarin by listening and speaking, will have a good understanding of alphabetical symbols, will be able to read basic text in both languages, will be able to use phonic strategies to approach new words, will be capable of using writing strategies appropriate for beginners, and finally, will be able to use and respond to media.
The key areas of learning in Maple Bear schools are categorised as follows:
Literacy and Early Language AcquisitionIn learning languages, children pass through several stages in predictable order: listening, developing understanding, speaking, reading and writing. Successive stages begin while preceding stages are still in development. When Maple Bear children learn English and Mandarin in our centre, their development proceeds through the same stages in the same sequence as in learning their first language. Research shows that learning two languages at an early age offers both linguistic and cognitive advantages.
Mathematics and Logical ThinkingChildren will become problem solvers and independent thinkers when nurtured in an environment which encourages them to do so. At Maple Bear, children will learn about patterns in the environment, number concepts, comparisons, sets, basic formal operations (e.g. adding and subtracting), 3D objects, simple graphs and basic measurements.
Science and TechnologyChildren will demonstrate curiosity about the natural world, demonstrate knowledge of characteristics of common materials, identify cycles in nature using techniques of observation, and work with others in using the computer in all aspects of their studies.
Arts and Creative ActivityChildren will understand colour, shape and use of media to express ideas. They will develop fine motor skills, e.g. learning to cut with a pair of scissors, tearing, pasting, etc.
Music and MovementChildren will be able to describe responses to music, art, drama and dance. They will learn rhythm, be able to listen and move to the beat of music and engage actively in playing instruments.
Physical Skills and Well-BeingChildren will develop physical skills (such as balance and flexibility), an awareness of health and safety rules, an understanding of sharing, taking turns, cooperation and socially acceptable behaviour.
Personal and Social DevelopmentChildren will learn to share, to respect others, to listen, and to understand that people have different talents and functions in our society.
