The Classroom Structure

Currently, there are three classes at the school led by competent, qualified teachers with a passion for their chosen profession. In two of our classes, the teachers are supported by assistant teachers and in the third, the teacher is supported by an aide.

The needs are quite diverse, as seen in the table below, necessitating one-on-one instruction to meet the specific needs of each student.

Seventeen, day students (8:30 am to 2:00 pm) and twelve evening students (one hour, three evenings per week) make up the school’s current enrollment.

The evening program provides educational support for students at mainstream schools and those whose parents cannot find school placements.

Extracurricular Activites

Children are believed that they will learn more from doing. They all have the right to be children and to have fun. Here in ExtraOrdinary Minds – Ashley’s Learning Center, we are aiming for them to be engaged with their activities and find what their interests and those things will motivate them in learning that they will never notice because they are actually having fun. 

Once a month, we are having a Community Outing for our students to be more familiar with the “outside” world and not just in the four corners of our classroom. We had trips to the grocery store where we let them experience choosing what they want and paying for the item that they had chosen. This also integrates with the lesson that I have them in Math, Money Recognition and identifying how much each coin/bill is. Second, we had an outing to the beach where we provided sand activities for our students that further enhanced their fine-motor skills. We let them play with the sand with their favourite toys at school that we brought with us. We let some of our students conquer their fear of water and all of us had fun at that time. Lastly, we have offered swimming lessons that helped them to focus and listen through the instructions given to them.
