Reputable Schools & Academic Enrichment in Calgary, Alberta



What Educational Needs Are You Looking For?



Private Schools

Why do parents choose to send their children to private schools? It's generally agreed upon that private schools provide more structure, greater emphasis on post secondary preparation, and smaller class sizes which allows for more individual attention. Private schools will also typically offer more opportunity for children who are passionate about extracurricular activities in the arts or athletics.

Preschools

It's important to take time researching the right preschool for your little one, you want this to be an enjoyable transition for your child. On top of cost, location, and teacher-to-student ratio, you should be meeting face to face with teachers to get a sense of the environment. Online research is a great place to start, but once you've narrowed down a few, we suggest in-person visits to nail down your choice.

Montessori Schools

A Montessori education is a child-centered educational approach with mixed age classrooms. The belief is that children are naturally eager to learn, so by giving them a thoughtfully prepared learning environment, they will feel empowered to initiate their learning. Within a range of options and materials where students learn core concepts, students have a choice for their activity.

Choosing The Best School For Your Child



Choosing the type of school your child will attend can be overwhelming and is often one of the most challenging decisions parents will face in their journey of doing the best for their children. The most important thing to remember is that there is no one-size-fits-all answer. It's a decision that should be carefully weighed depending on what's available to you, the needs of your child, the needs of you, and of course financial considerations.

To help you in this decision, we offer a comprehensive listing of private schools, preschools, enrichment programs, and daycare options in your area.

Most schools offer open houses or parent information sessions multiple times throughout the year, some private schools will even do private tours of the grounds. We highly recommend taking advantage of these! Online research is a valuable resource, however, in person visits will really help you get a feel for the school, the faculty, and peers.
