Canadian Education Franchise Network Maple Bear to Use Digital RO Kinderpedia Platform

Maple Bear Global Schools, Canada’s bilingual education franchise network, will use Kinderpedia school communication and management software and application across its network after the two companies enter into a partnership.

The partnership will provide Maple Bear kindergartens and schools around the world with a single operating system to integrate all of their operational, financial and educational activities and needs.

Kinderpedia integrates bespoke features for planning and tracking school operations, managing classes, tracking progress, communicating with parents, and automating tuition billing.

Using Kinderpedia will provide the Maple Bear network of 550 units in 32 countries with an integrated digital framework, which includes user management, communication, classroom management, financial and operational functionality.

The application has already been used for more than two years by two Maple Bear communities – Maple Bear CEE and Maple Bear UAE.

The global deployment of the solution is expected to take place over the next 18 months.

New Maple Bear schools will open with Kinderpedia, and existing schools are encouraged to move to the platform based on an implementation schedule, with assisted onboarding, user migration, personalized training, and access to a diverse range of tutorials and of user guides, the two companies mentioned.

A total of 2,000 schools and kindergartens from 14 countries on four continents are currently registered on Kinderpedia, totaling over 200,000 student accounts.

Last year, Kinderpedia attracted €1.8 million in funding from the Early Game Ventures (EGV) investment fund. Existing investors, RocaX, Growceanu and business angels also participated in the round.

There are currently over 44,000 students enrolled in more than 550 Maple Bear preschools, elementary, middle and high schools in 32 countries.
