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 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 Pre-Schools to develop competence in English. This means that children learn to listen, speak, read and write in English by surrounding them with conservation and instruction in English. Children learn in English right from the first day.Literacy which includes listening skills, speaking, reading and writing, is one of the most important goals of the Maple Bear program.
