Curriculum and Methodology Description

Learning through experience and exploration

When children enter school, they regard learning as a pleasurable experience and so are naturally inclined and eager to learn. It is important that the program reinforce and build on this positive attitude by offering varied stimulating and enjoyable experiences.

The knowledge and skills that children acquire by the end of kindergarten and elementary school, along with positive attitudes towards learning developed in these early years, form the basis of effective learning in their later years of school and post secondary education.

Teachers ensure that learning expectations are met

Competence in language, reading, mathematics, science and technology is developed systematically. Teachers integrate subject knowledge into a variety of active techniques suitable to the developmental stages of the children. Maple Bear schools have high learning expectations of children within a healthy, stimulating and supportive learning environment.

Children learn through direct sensory experience

Children are naturally curious about their world and are eager to learn about it. They need to manipulate, explore, and experiment with real objects. Play is the serious work of children.

Through it, they clarify information, integrate ideas from their previous experiences, and explore and experiment with their environment. Play also gives them the opportunity to add knowledge, learn new skills and practice familiar ones. They learn to deal with their feelings, interact with children and adults and resolve conflicts.

Finally, children develop their imaginations and creativity and learn to solve problems.
