Activities:

Maple Bear classrooms are so designed, to stimulate creative thinking in a child. They provide a literacy-rich environment with the main focus on acquiring language and literacy skills through listening, speaking, reading and writing. We encourage student independence, higher order of thinking and problem solving.

A sophisticated set of learning resources are used. Learning resources include books, manipulatives, materials, visual materials, electronic media and computer technology.

The emphasis is on experimentation and application rather than memorization.

In order to implement this programme effectively, Maple Bear conducts regular in-house training, for the Centre Head and teachers who also attend the trainings held by internationally acclaimed experts.
