Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that allows them to thrive. Children develop rapidly in the early years and a child's experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future possibilities. Maple Bear sets high standards to ensure children's readiness for elementary school. Maple Bear provides children with a wide range of knowledge and skills that provide the ideal foundation for progressing effectively in school and in life.
English language arts
By the end of kindergarten, children will communicate effectively in English by listening and speaking. They will have a good understanding of alphabetic symbols and be able to read basic English text. They will be able to use phonic strategies to approach new words and appropriate writing strategies for beginners. And finally, they will be able to use and respond to all media supports.
Science and technology
Children will demonstrate curiosity about the natural world, knowledge of the characteristics of common materials, identify cycles in nature using observational techniques, and collaborate with others to use the computer in all aspects of their studies.
Personal and social development
Children will learn to share, to respect others, to listen and to understand that people have different talents and functions in our society.
Children will understand the color, shape and use of media to express ideas. They will be able to express themselves through music, arts, theater and dance.
Physical skills and well-being
Children will develop physical skills such as balance and flexibility, an understanding of sharing, coordination and cooperation.
Children will solve problems. They will become familiar with models of their environment, number concepts, comparisons, sets, basic operations (for example, addition and subtraction), 2D and 3D objects, geometry, measurements and probabilities.
