Kid Mechanix Opens A NEW Learning Centre 

KMlearning centre350While we love summer, we can’t wait for September to arrive! That’s when we open the doors to our NEW Learning Centre at First Foundations Children’s Academy in Maple, Ontario! We have something for almost all young learners who need extra support in order to thrive in mainstream classrooms. Our ABA-based programs target areas such as school-readiness, social skills, emotional regulation and academics. And, to ensure each student gets the guidance and attention they need, our classes are small with one instructor for every three children. Here’s the full scoop about what we offer.

School-Readiness Program (Monday-Friday 11:30 am – 3 pm)
It’s ideal for 3 to 5 year olds who are verbal but have some challenges in the classroom. The focuses: Social communication between children (our students will have time with typically-developing peers in the First Foundations preschool), expressive and receptive language and building imaginative play skills.
-Comprehension skills
-Group imitation skills
-Following instructions
-Sharing and turn-taking
-Playtime with typically-developing peers

After-School Tutoring (1-hour time slots between 3:30 pm-6:30 pm)
We have a wide range of classes available for 6 to 10 year olds after school.
