Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to Apostrophe Kids!
Apostrophe Kids is a Language Arts and Math, academic enrichment program.
Apostrophe Kids Language was developed by an Ontario Certified Teacher. Apostrophe Kids Language is designed for students ages 7 to 14, who have a passion for Language Arts and the motivation to learn.
Apostrophe Kids Math was designed for Grade 3 to 6 students, who are looking for a math program that will challenge their problem-solving skills and who are interested in competing in math competitions participated by the brightest young minds from around the world.
We have campuses in Oakville (John Knox Christian School, 2232 Sheridan Garden Drive) and Mississauga (Erindale Presbyterian Church, 1560 Dundas Street West) .
Apostrophe Kids is a 36-week program. Our program runs from September to June and is divided into two terms. Term one begins in September and term two begins in February. Classes are held once a week. Apostrophe Kids Language is held on Wednesday and Thursday and Apostrophe Kids Math is held on Tuesday and are 90 minutes in length.
Apostrophe Kids Language curriculum has a foundation built on four key components: Reading, Writing, Oral Communication and Media Literacy. All four components are weaved into every level. The skills that they will develop and the learning that they will take away will be transferable to all subject areas in their educational experience making them well-rounded students with the added advantage of being a step ahead.
Apostrophe Kids Math curriculum covers topics such as: Number Sense and Numeration, Measurement, Geometry and Spatial Sense, Patterning, Algebra, Data Management and Probability. These strands are presented through typical questions used in the Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest and Caribou Contests. Through the use of critical thinking students will develop problem solving skills. Students will be encouraged to participate in independently sanctioned math competitions throughout the year.
Apostrophe Kids is taught by Ontario Certified Teachers. Our teachers pride themselves on offering their knowledges along with praise and encouragement to ensure students are inspired to learn. Through ongoing in-class and descriptive feedback they build individual student learning. With a low student to teacher ratio, teachers create a safe environment for students to explore and take risks.
Our mission is to cultivate, lead and inspire our students to become world-class thinkers and expert communicators, deliver a challenging and exciting curriculum that exceeds Ministry expectations, foster a love of learning, and help students realize and maximize their potential.
March Break Camps
Apostrophe Kids STEAM. Come join us for a jam-packed week of STEAM-based activities! In the full-day week long camp, students will master their critical thinking skills with hands-on activities and experiments! STEAM activities teach students the basic tenants of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Using just a few everyday objects, students will engage in educational activities so fun that they won’t even know they are learning! Each experiment or activity will teach students about one or more STEAM principle. It will encourage students to creatively tackle their learning through design and construction!
Stay tuned for exciting Summer Camp plans.
