Your children will learn to see the ‘big picture’ of how language arts, math, science, and technology are all part of a collective whole. This will give them a significant edge on other students. Unlike their classmates, they’ll develop a truly deep understanding of what they are learning at school, and why they’re learning it. They’ll become well-rounded individuals capable of applying themselves to both science and arts-related subjects.
Business leaders state that tomorrow’s jobs will go to those that know how to use technology to produce great results. Your kids are natural ‘digital learners’. Nevertheless, producing great results for education and work is different from playing computer games! At Pear Tree Education, your kids will constantly use their digital skills for planning, researching, presenting, and collaborating. This will help make them among the top choice for Canadian employers in any industry.
“Knowledge is power” [correction] – “Applied knowledge is power” – It’s those that apply their knowledge that become successful. At Pear Tree, your kids will apply their education to real-life events that have a profound effect on them. They will become active participants in Canadian society and will learn to take control of their life. At the same time, they will develop a powerful and enduring understanding of what they are learning at school. As such, their life will be much happier and rewarding.
Life and work are becoming increasingly more dependent on collaboration. However, in an individualistic society, young people need guidance and practice to be able to study and work together effectively. Your kids will learn to contribute their academic and social strengths to a team, while being able to value and draw upon the knowledge and skills of others. They will also learn to share leadership responsibilities.
We learn by doing, not by memorizing. With Pear Tree, your children will learn by actively exploring and sharing their own understanding and ideas. At the same time, our highly educated and experienced teachers will act as your children’s mentors – there to push your children even further than they are capable alone.
Pear Tree Education offers a range of exciting and inspirational programs to students in grades K-9. In addition to our after-school enrichment courses and camps, we also offer ESL exam preparation courses for kids.
