I dont know where to start! Maple bear team- you rock in each and every way. Sharing with you hoe much my son is in love with his school makes me the happiest mom ever. Knowing he loves to wake up every morning to ho and learn new things and sing new songs and try new experiments. All in all- from owners to admins to teachers to assistants- we are all in love with you
My son recently joined Maple Bear and he's having a great time. A cozy school with caring and attentive staff. They've maximized the use of space with lots of physical and outdoor activities. The multilingual approach with daily french and arabic is one of a kind and only few weeks into starting school and Mehmoud is already excited about the other languages. It's a fun place to be yet they also incorporate math and science at a young age.
My boys took under a week to take to their teachers and adjust to school routine. This is a testament to how positive and encouraging the classrooms are. The way our boys adore their teachers shows that they are receiving care and instruction equally- helping them develop a positive relationship with school and learning for life.
Maple Bear has a very warm, friendly welcoming environment, and my daughter took to it instantly. But it was also easy for me to trust and always feel comfortable knowing that their health, cleaning and sanitation procedures not only meet UAE requirements, but are guided by the best practices that are being put in place across Maple Bear schools around the world. They, are tried and tested and always kept up to date to make sure that the nurse as well as the staff in the classrooms are always ready to handle any concerns amongst the little ones at any time.
The e-learning program has been VERY very useful, for us as a family and for my son as an individual. It's very well organized, the teachers put their hearts and souls in the program. I highly reocmmend it and I'm grateful that this program is available, so that three languages can be introduced. We can't wait for the nursery to start again, but I'm confused which one would be better at this point - the e-learning home program, or the program in the nursery itself! I am super happy that we have teachers, assistants and program directors taht are behind this beautiful and enjoyable experience and it has helped us in spending quality time with each other. Teachers are updating materials and sharing feedback on a very punctual basis. I can only share my gratefulness!
