The Primary program (Nursery to Class 1)
Developing strong foundational skills in reading and mathematics is at the heart of the primary program.
Manipulative and multisensory activities provide the basis of teaching methods at this level. Attention to a students’ overall development is at the core of this program. The use of movement programs and practical learning help the students to develop good skills for recognizing and monitoring their need for the movement to improve learning. Sensory integration activities are built into the primary schedule as a routine activity. Our teachers teach small groups of children which allows for individual attention.
THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL (II to V)
Our teachers understand the development of continuum and use our scope and sequence of skills to guide students to improve their written communication. Handwriting instruction begins with the correct formation of printed letters. Efficient keyboarding and effective use of a computer are essential parts of our program and directly tied to instruction in written language. Math instructions occur in small homogeneous groups of students at an appropriate instructional level. Some of our students are strong in maths while others are challenged by the subject. Students practice math facts in many ways to understand and solve problems. The children are also introduced to the sciences and secondary languages
THE MIDDLE SCHOOL (VI to VIII)
Our middle school program focuses on preparing our students for a variety of high school options while continuing to remediate and reinforce each student’s foundational skills in all areas of strategic learning. We facilitate an attitude of responsibility towards learning by allowing our students to develop independence in applying learning strategies to all subjects Our middle school children also have an opportunity to develop leadership skills as representatives and office bearers of the school. We also work with parents to help them find the best possible fit for their child after they graduate from Oakwood.
