Message from the Director

The Covid 19 epidemic has presented some serious challenges for the education of our children. The closure of schools has made it difficult to provide ongoing learning opportunities for the children.

U-Can shifted from classroom based learning to online learning in March. There were many challenges in adapting to the new learning style but we were able to successfully complete the school year at the end of June, 2020.

Schools are still closed, yet we have now come to the beginning of another school year. U-Can teachers and administration have developed an exciting  plan that will make the coming school year a great learning experience for your children. There are 4 main components to the plan.

  1. Online learning using Google Classroom, WhatsApp, YouTube Lessons developed by our teachers, video chats and internet downloads.
  2. Printed teaching materials will be delivered to the children on a weekly basis.
  3. Teachers will have personalized interaction with all the students on a daily basis.
  4. Outdoor and Project Based learning will happen along-side the online classes. This will allow for students to have cooperative and social interaction with fellow classmates.

I believe that this program will help you and your children have fulfilling and successful school year.

Our Aim, Our Focus & Our Core Beliefs

Our Aim

“To make learning such an enjoyable adventure that it becomes an exciting lifelong quest.”

Our Focus

We will enable our students to grow and mature through:

  • teaching them to read with understanding
  • developing their skills to write well.
  • emphasizing basic math concepts and how they relate to daily life.
  • inspiring curiosity and a thirst for knowledge with thought-provoking science and social studies lessons.
  • enabling them to learn another language (French)
  • exciting and creative extra curricular activities – drama, music, art, dance, crafts, and sports
  • upholding high moral principles and  building an inclusive family within our school and our community.
Creating A great Learning Experience

We believe that learning is a joyful lifelong adventure. By creating inquiry-based experiences and tools that spark wonder; offer hands-on experiences; and encourage questions, explorations, and individual discovery, we’re transforming the way people learn. Learning this way empowers children to figure things out for themselves—about science, math and daily life.

Our International Smart Curriculum focuses on building a great foundation based on discovery, understanding and critical thinking. A wide variety of extra-curricular activities encourages creativity for children to use their natural mental abilities to figure out the world around them and to have an inquiring mindset that focuses on discovery and investigation.
