    Curriculum pace

     
    Student-paced
    The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.
     
    Standard-enriched
    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

     

    Academic culture

     
    Supportive
    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

    Academic
    Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

    Our Take

    Our Take

    OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

    In a general sense, OAT is a specialty school in the way that, say, a ballet school is a specialty school—it brings together students who share a passion, and builds the curriculum around their engagement with that curriculum. And, like a ballet school, or a hockey school, it’s not for everyone. But, for the students that it’s for, the experience can be transformative. At OAT students work and learn alongside true peers, those who share an abiding interest in technology. The core curriculum is the provincial one, though delivered in a technology intensive learning environment.

    LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

    The student body at Little Owl reflects the diversity of the surrounding community, and the school uses that as a foundation to encourage and celebrate a multicultural perspective. Little Owl is small, which is a draw for the families that enroll, as is the program that runs from preschool through the primary and elementary years. There is a close, family feel, with an individual attention to the needs of the students. Likewise, there is an attention to building students’ emotional and social esteem within a values-based environment. The ideal student is one looking for something different, and who will thrive in a hands-on, community based academic environment.

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      Our Take: primary curriculum type

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      Progressive (sometimes called "in- quiry-based") curricula attempt to place children's interests and ideas at the heart of the learning experience. Instead of lessons being driven by predetermined pathways, progressive curricula are often "emergent", with learning activities shaped by students' questions about the world. Instead of starting with academic concepts and then tying it to everyday experience, progressive methods begin with everyday experience and work back to an academic lesson. Teachers provide materials, experiences, tools and resources to help students investigate a topic or issue. Students are encouraged to explore, reflect on their findings, and discuss answers or solutions.

      LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

      Traditional curricula tend to be very content-based and rooted in the core disciplines. It is a structured approach that involves the teacher delivering a unified curriculum through direct instruction. Students usually learn by observing and listening to their teacher, studying facts and concepts in textbooks, and completing both tests and written assignments - which challenge students to not only demonstrate their mastery of content but their ability to analyze and deconstruct it critically. Class discussions are also used to create critical dialogue around the content of the curriculum.

        Our take: math approach type

        Our take: math approach type

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        Traditional Math typically teaches a method or algorithm FIRST, and THEN teaches the applications for the method. Traditional algorithms are emphasized and practiced regularly: repetition and drills are frequently used to ensure foundational mastery in the underlying mathematical procedures. The traditional approach to math views math education as akin to building a logical edifice: each brick depends on the support of the previously laid ones, which represent mastery over a particular procedure or method. Traditional Math begins by giving students a tool, and then challenges students to practice using that tool an applied way, with progressively challenging problems. In this sense Traditional Math aims to establish procedural understanding before conceptual and applied understanding.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.

        We aim to offer students a taste of what lies ahead. For many students graduating from high school, it isn't obvious, for example, how their math courses will relate to physics and chemistry courses encountered in their post-secondary studies. We value foresight in our teaching methods so that students become proactive learners who accurately predict what concepts and skills await them in future courses.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Little Owl uses the Ontario curriculum as our main guide to teach mathematics, with in-class activities to emphasize the topics learned.. Younger children learn through more hands-on activities, and as they age, we us a more abstract teaching approach. The Mathematics program focuses on developing our students' numeration, algebra, measurement, geometry, data management and probability skills. We place emphasis on cognitive development through problem-solving, logic, experimental learning, inventive strategies, mental math, technical vocabulary, higher order thinking and applying real life application.

        Our students start intially by learning specific grammar rules such as proper sentence structure and punctuation and writing methodologies, and as they become more familiar with writing, they are able to express themselves more personally in writing. Throughout the learning process, students will not only write sentences and stories, but focus on aspects such as word choice to convey mood or a specific idea and the place of writing in mediums beyond paragraph-based stories.

        Science programs that balance expository and inquiry learning equally will likely have an equal blend of tests and experiments; direct, textbook-based instruction and student-centred projects.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Expository science is the more traditional method of teaching science: students learn scientific facts, theories, and the relationships between them through direct instruction by the teacher. These programs still incorporate hands-on experimentation and “live science”; however, relative to inquiry-based programs, expository science tilts towards content mastery and knowledge acquisition. Direct instruction ensures this acquisition process is efficient. Textbooks are emphasized (starting in earlier grades than inquiry-based programs), as are knowledge tests: students are asked to demonstrate they have thoroughly learned the content of the course, and can apply that knowledge to novel and challenging problems or questions.

        Our goal is to offer these students a taste of what lies ahead. For the student graduating high school, it isn't obvious how their math courses relate to physics and chemistry courses. We would like to paint a clear picture of the relationship between these courses to give students a head-start on their university careers. What isn't standard about our courses is the view ahead our instructors offer. Our tech workshops are a key component to this philosophy.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Students gain foundational Science facts using a balance of inquiry and balanced instruction practices. Students read and learn from a diverse selection of school materials, textbooks, books, videos and inquiry. Besides this, we offer a variety of interesting collaborative learning opportunities through experiments and interesting research projects. Students use hands-on experiments to observe and test science facts in a fun and engaging way. For example, In Living Things, we chart and observe seed to plant growth and in Seasonal and Earth changes, we build and compare animal homes based on the habitat, time of year and other environmental conditions. In activities like these, we integrate the creative and scientific inquiry process.

        In traditional literature programs students focus on decoding the mechanics of texts: plot, characterization, and themes. These texts tend to include a balance of contemporary and “classic” literature. When studying a past work, students investigate its historical context -- but only insofar as this adds understanding to the work itself. Past works are therefore studied “on their own terms”, and not merely as historical artifacts to be deconstructed: traditional literature programs are firmly rooted in the humanities, and carry the belief that great literature can reveal fundamental and universal truths about the human condition. These programs emphasize class discussions and critical essay writing, and aim to develop in students critical thinking, communication skills, and a cultivated taste and ethos.

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        We teach literature primarily through a "Reader Response Theory" approach, where students are empowered to discover meanings from texts through their subjective experience as unique readers with differing identities and backgrounds. Through this method, we enact inquiry-based learning, where students are prompted with questions to help them delve into texts and develop their critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to become reflective independent thinkers who confidently express their views on literature with clarity and persuasion. This approach encompasses the belief that there is not one correct interpretation of a text, but rather many possibilities. We see our students become active learners, engaged with a text and with their peers through discussion, rather than passively listening to the teacher. In addition to our reader response approach, we also teach elements of literature so that students have foundational knowledge to refer to in their interpretations.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Children in English class learn to analyze texts and create their own. Literature is handled primarily as a learning tool for our younger children, but older ones begin to decode the mechanics plot, characterization and themes in basic texts.

        The Expanding Communities approach organizes the curriculum around students’ present, everyday experience. In the younger grades, students might learn about themselves, for example. As they move through the grades, the focus gradually broadens in scope: to the family, neighbourhood, city, province, country, and globe. The curriculum tends to have less focus on history than Core Knowledge programs.

        Students begin their studies by focusing on themselves and their own lives, then by gradually expanding the scope of their studies to their local communities and finally, the globe. They study both local and foreign culture and history through readings and exercises designed to develop in them an appreciation of the complexities of the different people and cultures world and to analyze how they might connect those aspects to their daily lives.

        We use a student-centred learning approach in our humanities and social science classes, where students are encouraged to research topics of personal interest and choose project directions suited to their individual preferences. By facilitating projects and activities centred on students' freedom of choice, we see learners become genuinely invested in their own education journey. We incorporate inquiry-based practices to help students become critical thinkers and cultivate their motivation in delving further into class concepts.

        We offer French, German, Latin and Spanish courses to reinforce the importance of global citizenship. We encourage students to expand their perspective by learning any one of these foreign languages.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Our French program places emphasis on proper pronunciation and the complexities of the language as compared to English. We encourage students to continue their learning outside the classroom to practice their structured learning in a real-world context. We believe that emphasizing proper pronunciation and rules allows students to experience the richness of the language outside the classroom without feeling self-conscious about their inexperience while also allowing them to discover the language at their own pace. Children learn Spanish through music, books and hands-on activities with new themes every week and a weekly "take me home" letter to practice vocabulary with the family at home. We also expose children to Spanish culture through art projects and short performances.

        We offer music courses at OAT. The technology element is essential since our instructors use up-to-date methods of digital sound mixing techniques.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        We believe that the creative theatrical process is as important as the final result. As such, students are taught not only how to perform but how to create their performance from early brainstorming to script-writing and improvisation. Students learn that elements of theatre can be applied to their lives beyond the classroom and that there is place for both discipline and freedom at the same time. Our objective is to encourage students to explore their artistic potential. Through the fine arts program students are introduced to various mediums, application styles and art history. Our goal is to create non-judgmental environment where students feel confident and comfortable expressing themselves through their art.

        Our take: computers and technology approach type

        OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

        A major effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy throughout the curriculum and in everything students do. Digital literacy is understood to be a fundamental skill in the 21st century: it therefore follows, the idea goes, that teachers should find ways to connect every lesson back to technology. Effort is made to ensure the use of technology is meaningful and advances students’ skills beyond what they would otherwise be from using computers outside the classroom.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        Computers are used in the classroom from time to time, but integrating technology into everything students do is not a dominant focus. Digital literacy is understood to be a legitimate skill in the 21st century, but not one that should distract from teaching the subject at hand, or more fundamental skills and literacies. The idea is today’s students, being “digital natives”, are likely exposed to computers and new media enough outside the classroom: the role of the school, rather, should be to develop competencies that may otherwise get missed.

        Students analyze algorithms for effectiveness. They investigate ethical issues in computing and further explore environmental issues, emerging technologies, areas of research in computer science, and careers in the field.

        LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

        We believe that computers are a useful supplementary tool for lessons. The internet allows for access to a vast range of teaching materials and media. That said, the focus of our students' lessons is on the direct teacher-student relationship. When the student and teacher interact, with the ability to communicate with each other immediately, we believe that the teacher is able to gauge and provide the necessary guidance to the student without the need for any technology. The integration of technology in the children's lives happens all around them outside the school. There is still a place for interpersonal interaction in their lives at Little Owl.

Students have the choice to participate in fitness classes, engage in games of squash, or plan their own workouts using the extensive exercise equipment available to them. Students are not rushed during their choice of physical activity, given that our school day consists of 1 hour and 45 minute periods.

      Approach


      Our Take

      LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

      Academic-based preschools and Kindergartens are the most structured of the different types, and have a strong emphasis on math and reading readiness skills. These programs aim to expose children to what early-elementary school is like. While time is still allotted to free play, much of the day is built around explicit lessons guided by the teacher. Classrooms often resemble play-based ones (with different stations set up around the room), but at an Academic program the teacher leads students through the stations directly, and ties these activities to a whole-class lesson or theme.

      At Little Owl students are taught English and French. Play is an important aspect in the development of young minds. Our curriculum allows for a balance between focussed academic efforts and the natural need for free expression. In the areas of Math and Science, we focus on cognitive development through problem-solving as well as promoting an understanding of how nature and science interact with our daily lives. Students also develop their creativity and imagination with our Ballet, Drama & Art classes.

      Our Take

      Our Take

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      The main curriculum pace is non-standardized and is HIGHLY responsive to the pacing of individual students, (via differentiated instruction, differentiated assessment, etc). In theory, some students outpace the default/normalized curriculum, while others spend periods "behind schedule" if they need the extra time.

      LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

      Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.


      What the school says

      To accommodate different schedules, we offer correspondence courses where students earn credits through online platforms that allow flexible pacing, suited to individual needs. Additionally, we provide evening and night classes for students occupied during the day, or for those who simply prefer to be in school after typical hours.

      OAT - ONTARIO ACADEMY OF TECHNOLOGY

      A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.

      We set high standards to prepare our students for success in their post-secondary education journeys while simultaneously nurturing the curiosity and liveliness of our students by encouraging a learning process that is not based on rote learning or dominated by direct instruction. The academic culture we promote is one of COMMUNITY and APPROACHABILITY, where we seek to eliminate the barriers between teachers and students that are often found in the public school system. We aim to do more than simply impart knowledge on students; we aim to build relationships founded on mutual trust and respect.

      LITTLE OWL PRIVATE SCHOOL

      We provide structure for children to follow with opportunities for them to explore and instill in them a love of learning. Our students follow the Ontario curriculum as well as the Little Owl curriculum of enriched arts. We support children's love of learning and curiosity about the world. We seek to help guide them along their academic journey both creatively and academically.

We aim, both individually and collectively, to offer our students a wide-lensed perspective of these multiple modes of development. Extra-curricular activities are key in order to help students develop a better sense of belonging to school community. Arts, Math, Games, Drones and Language Clubs are available on a weekly basis for students.

      We aim to shape our students into well-rounded, healthy individuals with strong problem-solving and interpersonal skills. Children can become de-individualized in certain teaching methods and we aim to support each students individuality and self-expression. It is important for children to have a strong sense of self and by helping them hone their intellectual and emotional selves, we help them become confident and talented people with a drive to succeed and create success for themselves, both personally and in the world outside the classroom.

    We very much value the individuality of each student, and with that, comes the recognition that each individual learner is comprised of distinct needs. We aim to meet these needs through one-one-one interactions, positive feedback and conferences where each student is fully supported and accommodated during his/her learning process. Our small class sizes allow ample attention to be given to each learner so that tailored teaching strategies can be applied to provide the highest quality of student-centered education.

If you feel like you need a school that gives you a great opportunity in STEM and provides you a calm, engaging and welcoming environment, then we are what you're looking for!
