I have had 4 children move through the Oxford Learning Program over approximately 9 years. I have enrolled my children at Oxford Learning in the Little Readers program (alternative to Kindergarten) and the Enrichment program. My children have experienced improved grades in language and math. I believe that this program can help reinforce concepts taught at school.

Over 9 Years at Oxford Learning!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank the staff at Oxford Learning East (Markham). My 6-year-old son attended the centre from November 2016 to May 2017 for assistance with his literacy in French. I found the staff to be incredibly patient with him and my husband and I were both shocked at how little he complained about having to do an extra hour of schoolwork twice a week. It's a real testament to the manner in which his tutors Miss J and Miss B engaged and encouraged him.
One thing I do want to note is that at one point I did become somewhat frustrated with the apparently slow progress my son was making. As the program is certainly a significant financial investment, I discussed this with the program coordinator Stephanie K. Not only was she willing to meet with me and discuss my concerns on numerous occasions, but she truly went above and beyond to ensure we were satisfied with the resolution.
In closing, although I withdrew my son one month earlier than originally planned (end of May), I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that not only did he finish at the reading level promised by Stephanie back in November, but he went from a D- to a B in reading. His teacher stated he had made the greatest overall improvement in his class and my son was incredibly proud of himself.
Again, as I had stated some frustration throughout the process, I thought it important to ensure that the staff at Oxford Learning Markham East are informed of the final results and know how grateful we are for all of their efforts. We have, and will continue to recommend them to others.
Kind regards - T.A.

Attention all parents with children 3-5 years old! Our Little Readers are READING! With a strong focus on building phonetic awareness, our Little Readers Pre-school program helps young children aged 3-6 learn letter names and sounds. Once they have done so, students are able to begin blending the letter sounds together to form words.
Here is one of our four-year-old students completing a page in his Word List 6 book. This part of the pre-school program allows students to repeatedly practice decoding and reading sight words while also asking them to comprehend the words they are reading. Great job!
FALL PRESCHOOL FUN
With thefall season upon us, the Little Readers have been very hard at work! Our daily art activities incorporate fundamental skills such as phonetic awareness, fine motor development and inquiry. Each week, various activities cater to the strengths of every child by allowing for musical exploration alongside creative and active learning. Students have learned songs and utilized their fine motor skills to explore the four seasons, as well as phonetically decode the F-A-L-L letters!
We are proud of our preschool and kindergarten students! Their art pieces are beautiful exemplars of what it means to have fun while learning!
