Canadian education company Maple Bear brings its bilingual childcare centres to Australia
Investors will soon be able to open a bilingual childcare centre with Canadian company, Maple Bear Global Schools.
The school is extending its investment opportunity to Australia, offering a quality, immersive bilingual education and the chance to be part of a global network of over 500 schools in more than 30 countries.
There are also plans for Maple Bear primary and secondary schools at a later date, as childcare centres continue opening.
Maple Bear’s bilingual education is an immersion program, while still supporting local language requirements. In Australia, where English is the primary language spoken, Maple Bear centres will have the option to choose the second language they would like children to be educated in based on the community and cultures in that area or centre. This gives potential owners a unique opportunity to open a centre in an area with a large population of immigrants that, while wanting their children to be fluent in English, may also wish for them to maintain a connection to their culture.
Carlos Ferri, Director of Maple Bear Australia said: “As a Brazillian immigrant who arrived in Australia 12 years ago not speaking a word of English, I know first-hand the benefits of being fluent in another language. With a high demand for quality education, particularly in early childhood, coupled with the sector being poised for massive growth, there has never been a better time to invest in education. I am delighted that business owners and educators throughout Australia will now have the opportunity to be part of the Maple Bear global family.”
There are three primary investment options available in Australia for becoming part of the
Maple Bear network of 500 bilingual schools:
- Greenfield - building a school from scratch.
- Conversion - conversion of an existing school in operation to the Maple Bear brand while keeping the current owner.
- Purchasing - purchase of a school in operation and conversion to Maple Bear brand with new owner.
