Maple Bear India’s rapid growth this past academic year is a smashing success story worth sharing! An amazing 28 new franchises have been signed in the 2015-2016 school year. Notably, some of the new locations are expansions into new cities in central, eastern and southern India.
According to Chairman Alok Kumar Modi, the growth of Maple Bear India can be attributed to Maple Bear’s presence in the market for over ten years. The Maple Bear reputation thrives in India through the success stories of parents’ experiences, owner satisfaction, and teacher empowerment that are shared enthusiastically by word of mouth.
“The Maple Bear philosophy of delivering a meaningful early childhood and elementary education through its well-researched and pedagogically sound education system resonates strongly with our growing parent and school owner community,” says Chairman Modi.
“I also believe that, through Maple Bear, we have already started building a very meaningful and caring community of learners which is just not limited to children but covers parents, grandparents, teachers, family and friends associated with the child,” he adds.

Hazel Siromoni, Managing Director of Maple Bear India, observes that the Maple Bear brand tends to attract young parents looking for an education for their child that is different from the traditional model of rote learning.
“Parents are recognizing the strengths of Maple Bear’s rich, child-centric program based on literacy and bilingualism,” Siromoni reports.
Indeed, the Maple Bear brand has been experiencing not only lateral growth – in the opening of new schools – but vertical growth into higher levels of education as well. Parents have been increasingly showing interest in retaining their children in the Maple Bear system of education past preschool, prompting the opening of several Maple Bear elementary schools.
This fall Maple Bear India will be organizing its first large-scale meet of 100 school owners coming together to learn, discover and discuss best practices. It will be a landmark event to mark and celebrate the sensational growth of Maple Bear India.
