Small group instruction_02171The Center for Learning
Akiva School strongly believes that all students can and should succeed. We understand that each child has their own distinct way of learning, and we offer a range of services through the Center for Learning to meet the different needs of our students. The Center for Learning offers direct service access to students including:

Kindergarten screenings & intervention
In collaboration with Agence Ometz and the Bronfman Jewish Education Centre (BJEC) our kindergarten students are evaluated for cognitive and developmental skills.

The skills that are assessed are:

  • Pre-literacy and numeracy skills
  • Speech and language development
  • Fine motor development

The purpose of the assessment is to identify the presence or absence of these skills and reinforce them in class as necessary. There are also opportunities for 1-1 speech or occupational therapy if needed.
