Kendellhurst Academy is a private grade school 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. After experiences with both a local prestigious private school and highly rated public school after our eldest child left our preschool division we once again thought seriously of home schooling our children. Instead after six years of great success with our two educationally based preschools and experience in the industry and having many many families ask us to open a private grade school we dove right in since we have the educational and business backgrounds Paula is also finishing her Doctorate of Education at OISE/U of T we decided to make a difference in the private grade school industry.
We offer our families a small boutique type school setting with attention to detail. From an organic menu and yoga lessons to tailored academic and signature programs weve created a superb setting for your child to flourish. Our motto of nurturing the students mind and spirit through creativity intelligence and personal academic excellence is central to everything we do. From curriculum development staff selection and school pedagogy this important thread is woven throughout Kendellhurst. We have visited and examined many of the private schools in the immediate Streetsville and Oakville areas in order to see conclusively that we are indeed offering a unique and outstanding program for choosy parents since we are choosy parents.
Our school is founded on a child-centered perspective of the world. We firmly believe that every individual child has specific needs to his/her world. Our classrooms school facility and programs are designed in an organized productive and nurturing manner in order to encourage each child’s intellectual emotional behavioral social and physical growth.
