Core Curriculum Pre School

English Language Arts
By the end of Senior Kindergarten children will communicate effectively in English by listening and speaking, will have a good understanding of alphabetical symbols, will be able to read basic text in English, will be able to use phonic strategies to approach new words, will be capable of using writing strategies appropriate for beginners, and finally, will be able to use and respond to media.

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.

Science and Technology
Children will demonstrate curiosity about the natural world, demonstrate knowledge of characteristics of common materials, identify cycles in nature using techniques of observation, and work with others in using the computer in all aspects of their studies.

Creative Activity
Children will understand colour, shape and use of media to express ideas. They will be able to describe responses to music, art, drama and dance.

Physical skills and well-being
Children will develop physical skills (such as balance and flexibility), an awareness of health and safety rules, an understanding of sharing, taking turns, cooperation and socially acceptable behaviour.MathematicsChildren will become problem solvers. They will learn about patterns in the environment, number concepts, comparisons, sets, basic formal operations (e.g. adding and subtracting), 3-D objects, simple graphs and basic measurements.

Language development and acquisition
Children enter Maple Bear School with some basis in their home language.  In learning their first language children pass through several stages in predictable order: listening, developing understanding, speaking, reading and writing.  Successive stages begin while preceding stages are still in development. When Maple Bear children learn English as a new language their development in English proceeds through the same stages in the same sequence as in learning their first language.  Research shows that learning two languages at an early age offers both linguistic and cognitive advantages.

Immersion methodology is used in Maple Bear schools to develop competence in English.  This means that children learn to listen, speak, read, and write in English by surrounding them with conversation and instruction in English.  Children learn in English right from the first day.

Literacy, which includes listening skill, speaking, reading and writing, is one of the most important goals of the Maple Bear program.
