What We Believe...
Every child has Einstein and Van Gogh in their hearts or Shakespeare's ability. Finding the key to unlocking these abilities is one of our basic goals. Therefore, it is imperative to provide a program that fosters a passion for learning, and a program that promotes the growth of a plan to maximize your potential.
Every child is a unique individual, we recognize that they learn at their own pace and style. How each child comprehends all via close observation, and attention to the kid's necessities, especially determined on personal time with teachers.
Early Learning courses includes Maths, Reading, Written and Oral Expression, Environmental Studies and Introduction to French. It also includes activities to develop social, physical and creative skills.
Small class sizes are maintained, allowing for individual attention and the fostering of effective communication between students and teachers in a friendly, caring and nurturing environment.
Our expectations are high, we firmly believe this produces higher achievement from our students.
We offer a structured program, stressing basic skills.
Individualized programs are established for those students who may be advanced in certain subjects so that they do not become bored, and similarly for those students who may be experiencing difficulty with certain subjects so that they do not become frustrated.
Homework is considered an integral part of the students’ program, beginning in the early grades.
Organizational skills and the development of good work/study habits are stressed beginning in the early grades.
