What Parents & Students Are Saying

Hi Alice, Results from J’s math test written on Monday, May 27; I'm extremely pleased and look forward to seeing more of these. Take care and thank you for getting him on the right track in not only grasping the concept being taught, but also developing the patience for reading and problem-solving. With kind regards, S

I enrolled my two children at Oxford Learning this summer for a month. It was the most amazing experience and the best thing that I could have done for them. At first I was hesitant as my children are only 3 and 5; however, from the initial assessment I felt comfortable. Everyone was very nice, professional and knowledgeable. Prior to attending the assessment I exchanged numerous emails with the centre and they always responded promptly. My kids had fun; their teacher was amazing and they learned a lot. I would not hesitate to re-enrol them again.

Dear Ms. Najma, I know for a fact when Vijay started at Oxford Learning his academics were nowhere close to where they are now. All he knew at that time was 'my name is Vijay and I love cars!' He has shown so much enthusiasm for learning. This I know can only happen for a child who is 3 years old because of all the love, effort, and comfort he has with his teachers and more so, his secure class environment. I still can't believe that Vijay can read! Thank you to his wonderful teachers! Vijay loves "Oxpord"; he couldn't have said Oxford when he started but now he can read, spell and write! Naraine R

My twin sons Devin and Ryan have been attending the Markham South Oxford Learning Centre for about three years. They both have become more confident in themselves since coming here and are more willing to do their school work. One of my twins who has a learning disability in reading and writing, has come a long way and even his teachers at school say how hard he tries. I feel this is due to the help and encouragement they receive from their teachers at Oxford Learning. Najma and Katie are always welcoming and willing to talk to you when you have a concern with your child’s school work. My boys are happy and are progressing very well at school and I thank all the teachers here for everything they do. I would definitely recommend Oxford Learning to other parents. Heather

Our little Smita continues to excel at school. I am happy to tell you that she has received an award for being an "Avid Reader". She also MC'ed at her school with over 500 guest attending. Her confidence speaking has come from confidence in reading. These accomplishments came from Oxford Learning; your teachers, your help, your support. Your school is surrounded by care and loving teachers and most of all, security and learning. Thank you. G Sharma

What's New at Markham South

Don’t Leave This School Year to Chance!

The countdown to school is on! A new school year is almost here—how will your child prepare?

For most, getting ready to head back to school means buying a new bookbag, new school supplies, and new clothes. All these things are important; they help kids head back to school in style, but they do nothing to help children get better grades or have a successful school year. 

This year, children everywhere should head back to school with the ultimate accessory for the classroom—a brain that is ready to learn!

Don’t Wait—Anticipate

Don’t wait to see how your child will do this school year—be prepared for success from the first day of school (or even before) by implementing good habits that will last the entire school year! These Six Tips For School Success help students of all ages (and their families) be more prepared to head back to the classroom and have a successful school year!

  1. Begin early.  Whether school is a month or a week away, or even if the school year has already begun, it is never too late to implement positive changes that can lead to better grades. However, the earlier that you get your child on track, the easier it is for them to stay there.
  2. Get informed. Develop regular communication with the teacher so that both you and your child know what to expect at this grade level.  Be informed of important school dates (big projects, standardized testing) well in advance to avoid last-minute scrambles.
  3. Use a family calendar. Manage school, family, and extracurricular activities with a daily reminder courtesy of a large wall calendar.  
  4. Break bad habits. Don’t fall back into old routines and bad habits. Start this year with a fresh and new positive routine.
  5. Get help. Avoid struggling this year from the get-go by making the decision to get professional academic support.
  6. Don’t wait. It’s easy to want to wait until the first report card for an update on how a child is progressing, but why wait? If a child had difficulties last year, get help from day one and get on the path to a better school year.

Being prepared for the classroom early on is the best way to ensure that the school year starts off on the right foot.  When you begin the year with organization and a plan for success, the school year won’t be left to chance and there will be no unpleasant surprises!

Better summers begin here!

The topic of summer learning loss is far from new. As early as the 1960s, education experts have been studying the learning losses that occur over the summer break. Their findings were maybe not that surprising: the extended break from school and learning leads to a dramatic decrease in learning motivation and in subject comprehension. Math skills take the hardest hit, with many students returning to school in the fall significantly behind where they were in spring.

But it’s not all bad news. The research also shows that preventing summer learning losses is as simple as maintaining academic learning during the summer. In fact, the data shows that students who kept learning in the summer didn’t just maintain their academic standing, they were also able to make impressive academic gains.

There’s even more good news: summer learning does not have to be a formal to be effective.

Free from the time commitments of the regular school year, summer is an opportunity for students to make big strides in their learning—to catch up in difficult subjects, or to get ahead in subjects they are passionate about.

Whether in camps or in classes, there are many reasons that summer learning can lead to a better learning experience for your child:

  1. Summer learning is often more engaging for students.
  2. Students can feel relaxed knowing that they have time to focus on one subject without distraction
  3. A new environment, a different teacher, a fresh instructional approach—a new perspective can make a challenging subject “click”
  4. Summer semester is shorter, so students can see more progress and gains in a shorter timeframe, which boosts motivation

If you have been searching for a solution that will help make learning "click" for your child, consider summer learning. 

Our flexible scheduling balances out summer family fun with academic support that can help make next year the best school year yet.

Your child’s better summer begins right here.
