Message from school leadership

Igor Sarjinsky, Principal
MSc, PhD

At Rutherford Private School and Daycare we offer many different challenging programs in a nurturing environment, with small classes, individual attention, and outstanding teachers as our hallmarks. I believe that children are the basis of our future and it is very important for all of us to be able to come together to believe are children have the knowledge to peruse their life.  Our staff encourages the students that it is not only their future however our future. The “Spirit of Logic” is something that is strongly believed in the school, when everyone around them provides a welcoming environment and strong dedication students are able to achieve anything they believe in.

We offer many challenging programs and as well as thinking situations for our students to help further their critical thinking and analysis skills. At the centre of our philosophy is the idea that securing a broad foundation of knowledge is essential to a successful adult life. We strive to create a positive experience for students no matter their age. If we are able to create a positive and fun learning experience which they will enjoy, they will be willing to try again the next time and as well as for other different experiences. From Art to Engineering, or even World History to Music, not only do we provide those classes and information, but as well as the support and tutoring needed in order to succeed. Our balanced program helps prepare students for university and beyond, as they mature into well-rounded, lifelong learners and leaders within their community. Here at Rutherford Private School and Daycare, we love to see our students reach their goals and then to surpass them.

Feel free to call our office with questions or even just to chat about what our school has to offer. We enjoy talking to current and prospective parents about our challenging programs, carefully selected staff anf our outstanding facilities.

It's not simple to be different
