We offer different programs for Toddler, Nursery, JKG and SKG..
TODDLER (Below 2 years)
In the toddler years, children begin to experiment on a more advanced level than at the infant stage. Their range of motor skills increases, and they begin to progress to a higher cognitive level. Toddlers learn with their entire bodies- they move about constantly, touching everything, experiencing all things, and solving problems on a physical level. Their language skills, in this period of time, are rapidly developing. The “job” of a toddler is to develop his/her self-help skills while pushing for separateness and independence. As a result, toddlers are constantly testing limits.
NURSERY ( 2.5 + As On First April)
Our nursery program provides a rich classroom environment where children are encouraged to explore and are challenged to learn. Your children will make new friends and develop self-confidence as they strengthen their cognitive skills. Observe your child demonstrate new learning and thrive in our stimulating classroom environment- while having fun!
JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN (3.5 + As On First April)
Lower Kindergarten or JKG is a critical time for children, as it is here that they begin an adventure of a lifetime of learning. Every day, your child is learning and experiencing more, which is why our program is designed to constantly challenge.
Our caring, experienced teachers are dedicated to providing a rich and nurturing environment that will prepare your child for Kindergarten. We promote independence in an organised atmosphere, as it is increasingly important for children to be their own thinkers. We also teach children to work well within a group, through listening, sharing and cooperation.
SENIOR KINDERGARTEN (4.5 + As On First April)
At our centres, children are in a secure environment they know and love, which makes learning more effective and fun. Our programs are comprehensive, skill-based and are designed to start your child off right, and you will witness immediate success.
Our activities are tailored to meet your child’s individual needs, and our teachers provide opportunities to explore, question, communicate and create in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Our SKG curriculum meets and even exceeds state and national content standards for the first-grade, making sure your child is prepared to excel at the next level.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE PLUS PROGRAMS
INTENSIVE ENGLISH PLUS
The Intensive English Plus Program will enrich the children’s English language learning through the use of factual reading materials. The units are designed to assist children in understanding and using books to gain knowledge, and to utilise the English language through a variety of learning activities. The more a child is exposed to and uses English, the faster fluency in the language can develop.
Each unit integrates the five streams of a Canadian-based Language Arts program: Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking and Viewing. The lessons are designed to allow children to experience activities in each of the five streams. These experiences will be presented to children through the use of a variety of teaching strategies.
THEMATIC SUMMER CAMPS
Maple Bear™ is unique in its offering of thematic summer camps, ranging from themes like Dinosaurs and Trees, for age groups 2 to 8 years old. Some themes are expanded to cater to higher age groups (till 10 years of age).
