There are frequent fun activities and galas where kids get to showcase their skills. I love their show and tell sessions every week. My kid is constant search for a topic every week to show and tell. The research project that started this is also great. Kids are under guided supervision to research a topic on their computer.

They have variety of programs but it’s repetitive.

The school provides extracurricular activities which are usually not a great fit for the needs of my JK children and myself for the following reasons: 1. Initially my children need time to sleep. So they can't stay for after school activities. They often fall asleep in the car on their way home. 2. As they grow they need less sleep time. Then, I want to spend playtime with them after school. 3. I prefer my children to have more physical activities as they don't get them a lot in school. The school has a small indoor space functioning as an indoor gym and a small outdoor concrete space for children to run around. After school, I take my children to playgrounds, skating, gymnastics, etc.

There should be more extra curriculur if possible that balances the academic with modern themes (digital communication , social media) and some sports/play based that leverage academics . Not an easy ask but give it some thought.

Extracurriculars at Sidney Ledson, though present, are not one of its strongest points. The school does its best to create an environment where students can spend outside the classroom, whether it be through small class field trips or fun 'house' activities such as dodge ball. There is always an opportunity to participate outside the classroom.However, due to the small size of the student body and the school grounds, there are few opportunities for very competitive extracurricular participation. Though our son did not find this unfortunate as he enjoyed the in-school activities very much, some students looking to participate in competitive extracurricular activities may have to consider this.

The school is located in an office space, so there is no "official" playground. There is a play area where students can run, though it is not safe for younger kids if they fall. There is a ravine closeby that students walk to when the weather is nice. That said, students enjoy playtime and some indoor sports (soccer, basketball, badminton, and others) in an inclusive and fun environment. Students are also encouraged to participate in field trips, with clear pedagogical goals and in a safe environment. I wish the school encouraged students to participate in sports meetings and competitions around the GTA.
