November 27 (SeeNews) - Canadian private schools network Maple Bear said on Tuesday it has entered the Romanian market as part of an ambitious plan to develop a network of schools with more than 15,000 students all over Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in the next ten years.
In Romania, the plan is to develop more than ten early childhood and elementary schools, it said in a press release.
The company also said it is planning to open a private high school in the country, without elaborating on the timeline.
"We are entering Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region and looking for local partners to set up schools in Romania. Our schools have unique positioning on the market," Maple Bear general manager for CEE Yann Bidan said. "Maple Bear conforms to local education regulations, offering fully articulated local curricula in addition to the Canadian program and methodology. This opens up many more educational options for Maple Bear students locally and internationally," he added.
Maple Bear network was founded 12 years ago in Canada and is present today in 16 countries around the globe with over 300 early childhood, elementary and high schools and more than 35,000 students.
