New Guides to Education

Borading

The Our Kids guide to boarding school

We’re pleased to announce the launch of 18 pages devoted to boarding, as well as a new, detailed guide to boarding schools in Canada. It’s by far the most detailed, most useful guide of its kind ever created in the Canadian boarding marketplace. We cover the different kinds of boarding schools in Canada, and we discuss the issues parents face when assessing a school. We then provide a comprehensive list of boarding schools and tools for comparing those schools by their program offerings. Throughout, follow the links to detailed profiles of each school, as well as reviews and testimonials relevant to finding the right school for your child. Read the boarding guide now.


Gifted

The Our Kids guide to gifted education

We’re very excited to announce the launch of our new gifted hub. The hub is the first of its kind: it's the most comprehensive online guide to gifted education in Canada. It covers a wide range of topics, including detecting and testing giftedness, different types of gifted programs, alternative curricular approaches for gifted learners, and choosing and applying for gifted programs. It also provides links to lots of schools with different types of gifted programming, and allows you to compare and analyze them in terms of a wide range of criteria. Read the gifted guide now.
