Welcome to the B.E.N. School-House!
(Balanced Education Network)
We are a not-for-profit, independent school in Toronto for children from pre-school to Grade 6. We are committed to respecting and fostering each child’s own natural genius and nurturing the development of individual talents and strengths:
- by integrating the development of age-specific, universal human values and skills with the necessary Ontario Academic learning requirements in engaging, active, and practical ways.
- by providing an intimate, warm and encouraging school environment in a neighbourhood house; the safe school ecology is carefully considered with the development and needs of the child in mind.
- by teachers interacting closely with parents; we feel that a strong parent-teacher partnership enhances the child’s learning experience and potential.
There are many ways to learn about our school and our enhanced Ontario curriculum whether you are considering an alternative education for your child or you want to find out more about our value-based approach to education. Contact us to arrange a personal tour of the B.E.N., review this site and see why parents and children love the B.E.N. school or sign up for our parent workshops to find out more about our value-based approach to education and hear what our parents have to say.
