As Canadian educators, responsible for creating one of the best education systems in the world emphasize, that the time spent by children in preschool under the care of well-prepared caregivers and teachers should be the first fundamental level of education and is equally important as all subsequent stages.

The first 1000 days from conception to 2 years of age are crucial for brain development. The type of care a child receives influences their abilities to react and cope with stimulation and emotions. Over the next 1000 days, from around 2 to 5 years of age, which is precisely the preschool age (in Canada formal schooling begins at age 6), neural networks in the brain develop and enable the growth of social, emotional and cognitive skills, that are essential for a child to develop a love for learning and a desire to learn throughout their life.

Preschool age is a period during which children develop thinking skills such as planning, understanding others’ thoughts and motivations, processing information, asking questions, creative thinking, and evaluating information. Language is a key tool that helps children communicate, manage emotions, negotiate, and build thinking skills.

Maple Bear experts invite you to a meeting where you can learn about the discoveries and scientific research behind the decisions of the most advanced countries to start formal education for children as early as possible. During the meeting, we will also discuss how Maple Bear implements Canadian educational strategies in preschool education in practice.

The directors of Maple Bear kindergartens in Krakow and Wroclaw invite you to learn about the teaching program, organization of space, methodology, materials and the importance of play and creativity in developing skills necessary for lifelong learning.
