Mindwerx4kids Early Learning Center began in 2006 offering nursery school and kindergarten programs for children from 18 months to 6 years. The curriculum includes regular developmental and standardized assessment as well as programming that is individualized to meet each child’s unique profile provided by teachers in low ratio classrooms. We also offer before and after school care for parents who require it.
In September 2011, mindwerx4kids announced its expansion as a co-educational day school for children from Grades 1 through Grade 8. Our elementary school is registered as a private school by the Ministry of Education and has its own facilities at Humber Valley United Church at 76 Anglesey Blvd., (less than 5 minutes from our Bloor St. location by car). We are very happy with the large classroom space, access to gym, assembly hall and stage. There is ample outdoor space with a park space and skating rink within walking distance. We look forward to implementing some very interesting classes again this year with an enriched curriculum and an individualized programming approach.
In grades 1 through 8, child to teacher ratios remain at 7:1 or lower per classroom to facilitate our individual approach to learning. In addition to a stimulating curriculum that includes Literature and Language Arts, Mathematics, French, History, Geography, Science, Art, Drama and Music, teachers are available to scaffold new skills for children as they emerge, consolidate previous learning, and help build confidence. Standardized assessments and academic evaluations occur regularly to review and update each child’s program plan to optimize their development and maximize potential.
Mindwerx4kids Day School also encourages the development of the child’s distinct personality as well as the love of learning in its students. Participation and contribution in musical and dramatic productions, field trips, social groups and sports add creativity and fun to the lively atmosphere.
Please feel free to call us anytime if you wish to explore the possibilities of Mindwerx4kids Day School for your child. We would be delighted to discuss your child and the opportunities we offer. Thank you for your interest in Mindwerx4kids.
