Prepare your child!

Let us guide you through winning strategies to help your child feel more secure and make the interview count.

Private School Entrance Coaching (Grades JK to Grade 1)

We can help prepare your child for the competitive admissions process into private schools in the Lower Mainland.

We offer examination preparation and interview coaching; our staff have extensive knowledge of the private school system in the Metro Vancouver area and understand what school admissions teams are looking for.  We have a great track record of facilitating students’ successful entry into their first choice of private school.

Math Programming-

In this course, your child will work through our Singapore Math curriculum covering topics like addition and subtraction without regrouping, addition and subtraction with regrouping, length and weight, shapes, and ordinal numbers, just to name a few. In addition, your learner will also develop skills such as subitizing, number fluency, bar modelling, and pattern recognition, among others.
With our private school preparation course, your child will improve his or her math skills in a supportive environment that will also assist with socialization and classroom etiquette.
English Programming-
Help your child stand out during private school assessments with this preparatory English class! With this class, we will prepare your learner for the English portion of the private school academic assessment process. The goal of this class is for your learner to gain mastery of all English concepts at the prescribed BC curriculum level. This includes, but is not limited to, letter recognition, letter formation, close syllable phonetics, decoding consonant blends and digraphs, and basic reading skills.
As with all of our group classes, this course allows your child to flourish in a supportive environment that will also assist with building socialization skills and classroom etiquette. 

Private School Entrance Coaching (Grade K to Grade 9)

We can help prepare your child for the competitive admissions process into private schools in the Lower Mainland.

We will carefully analyze a child’s use of language skills, their comfort level and self-confidence, their understanding of test directions and tasks, their visual motor skills, work traits and motivation as well as the overall impression formed when meeting the child.

We then create a custom preparatory course not limited to story telling, question and answer, easy and complex patterning, puppets, puzzles, and social scenarios created in order to bring out your child’s strengths.

Are you aware of your child’s habits and uncomfortable movements that make the interviewer want to go on to the next child?

Do you know what attire helps your child to stand out from the other candidates and doesn’t get in the way?

Private School Parent Interview Skills Course

In addition to private school application coaching and editing, we also offer private school interview preparation. In these custom coaching sessions, you will receive guidance on what private schools look for in applicants, how to stand out, how to prepare, and how best to frame your responses to commonly asked questions. This service is offered for both families and student applicants.

Private School Application Review

This service includes a personal, one-on-one meeting with a member of our educational team. Here, our coach will learn more about you and your applicant, and discuss which private school(s) would best fit your family’s needs. Our coach will also provide guidance for how to approach writing your applications.

Families are also able to book additional editing sessions where our coach will review your completed application, prior to submission, and provide editing feedback and further guidance.
