Serving Toronto families for more than 40 years, our education experts offer standard-setting programs for infants, toddlers and pre-school children. We want children to be learners, to love to learn, to be part of a community of learners, and to grow into awesome adults who can make a difference in the world.

Reminder: Superheroes

In our efforts to provide an atmosphere of peacefulness for the children, please refrain from sending your child to school in clothing that reflects fantasy or violent characters such as martial arts, wrestling, computer game characters or superheroes (Star Wars, Superman, Iron Man, etc).  We feel that allowing children to wear these clothes leads them to engage in play that is violent and often sexist.  In turn, this undermines the values we teach – kindness, peaceful conflict resolution, and empathy.  We believe the type of marketing behind these products leads to materialistic values and competition that can be detrimental to the well-being of the child.
