Maple Bear’S Schools To Expand In Middle East

(MENAFN- Brazil-Arab News Agency (ANBA)) São Paulo – The expansion of Maple Bear school Network includes the Middle East, where the company is already in operation and plans on opening more locations soon. Recently acquired by Brazilian education group Seb, Maple Bear plans to reach 39 countries next year, including locations in the Middle East, Central Europe, the United States, and Asia. Its headquarters is in Toronto, Canada, where it was first established. Before taking full ownership of Maple Bear, Seb already owned 70% of the company.

In an interview with ANBA, Maple Bear Global schools CEO José Henrique Del Castillo Melo says the company widened its international network from 21 to 31 countries and will reach eight more foreign destinations by the next year.

“Although we've been present in Middle East countries for quite some time, we're excited about the opportunities, and we see a strong convergence between expectations from governments and families and the world-class educational model we provide,” he said.

The company is operational in the United Arab Emirates and Oman, among other countries. He explains that to work in different regions and cultures, the company develops“unique models” that take into account cultural, regulatory aspects and family expectations“while preserving the educational approach and methodology that led us to become the world's biggest bilingual schools,” he says.

This educational model, explains Melo, is developed by the company part in Canada, part in each country it'll operate in,“within an intense, complex framework of training for teachers and school leaders and a detailed quality certification process aimed to ensure the excellence of academic services we provide in each classroom,” he says.

The expansion is conducted via franchises alongside regional partnerships.“These regional joint venture partners run the operation in each country, allowing a variety of investors – notably school construction and conversion and franchising – to contribute to change the educational landscape in their countries,” says Melo.

The Seb group belongs to Lebanese Brazilian entrepreneur Chaim Zaher, who works in preschool, primary education, secondary education, and tertiary education. Some of the schools owned by the group are Escola Bilíngue Pueri Domus, Sphere International School, Centro Universitário Unidombosco, and Escola Carolina Patrício. The institution has 62,000 students across 450 schools. In Brazil it's operational in 141 cities, where it has 239 schools with 39,000 students.
