What Kendellhurst Academy says..
Kendellhurst Academy is a private preschool founded by John Kendell and Paula Carrasco-Kendell. As parents, we wanted a warm, nurturing environment with attention to personal, academic excellence for our children. We offer our families a small, boutique type school setting with attention to detail. From an organic content menu and yoga lessons to tailored academic and signature programs, we’ve created a superb setting for your child to flourish! Kendellhurst Academy is a preparatory school developed to provide parents with an alternative to Montessori education and regular day care facilities.
Though Montessori and regular daycare facilities meet the specific need of certain parents and their children, we felt, after much research and rumination, that a gap existed in the services offered for early childhood education and care. As parents, we thought seriously of home schooling our own children, but felt that a social environment with other children would enhance their world greatly, and allow us to pursue our professional obligations.
Since we had the educational and business backgrounds, and found plenty of friends with their own young children in similar situations, we decided to open our own school. We have visited and examined at least forty schools in the immediate Streetsville and Oakville areas in order to see conclusively that we are offering a unique and outstanding program for choosy parents, since we, ourselves, are choosy parents.
Our school is founded on a child-centered perspective of the world. Our attention is on the child learning as a child, avoiding the mistake made, more often than not, of moulding the child into a little adult. Children should be allowed to engage their imaginations and live in that coveted space of childhood as long as possible. Also, we firmly believe that every individual child has specific needs to his/her world. Our classrooms and school facility are structured in an organized, productive and welcoming manner in order to encourage each child’s emotional, behavioural, social and physical growth. We have specifically chosen to operate small preschools, four classrooms at each preschool campus in Streetsville and Oakville, to create the unique sense of a familial and small community environment.
Kendellhurst Academy has three campuses with two Preschools (Oakville and Streetsville) licensed with the Ministry of Education Early Learning Division and a Grade School (located in Streetsville) that has obtained a Board School ID (BSID) from the Ministry of Education. Kendellhurst is a member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools (OFIS), Ontario’s largest Private School Organization and the Association of Daycare Operators of Ontario (ADCO). Kendellhurst staff are qualified Registered Early Childhood Educators (RECE) and/or members of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).
