Student Services

The Center for Learning
Akiva School strongly believes that all students can and should succeed. We understand that each child has their own distinct way of learning, and we offer a range of services through the Center for Learning to meet the different needs of our students. The Center for Learning offers direct service access to students including:

Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten Screenings & Intervention
In collaboration with Agence Ometz and the Bronfman Jewish Education Centre (BJEC) our kindergarten students are evaluated for cognitive and developmental skills.

The skills that are assessed are:

  • Pre-literacy and numeracy skills
  • Speech and language development
  • Fine motor development

The purpose of the assessment is to identify the presence or absence of these skills and reinforce them in class as necessary. There are also opportunities for 1-1 speech or occupational therapy if needed.
