On top of the academic support, our regional offices support school owners with the business and administration side of running a school. Our teams are on hand to provide guidance throughout the entire process of establishing and owning a school from writing a business plan, selecting or designing a facility, planning finances, to marketing and school administration.
Canadian education experts mentor and assist in the start-up phase coupled with an in-person initial training of academic and administrative staff.
After the start-up phase, school owners receive year-round support and training for their staff. Every Maple Bear school undergoes an annual quality assurance visit that covers everything from safety equipment to classroom performance. Our goal is to help Maple Bear school owners establish quality schools that will provide an excellent education experience to students for generations to come.
