Principal's Message

Welcome to Children’s Village School, a vibrant school community which constantly strives to ensure every individual feels safe, accepted, valued and successful. We are privileged and excited to take on our new roles working alongside the amazing team of professionals from CBE and our partner organization – Wood’s Homes. As a school, our collective goal is to foster an environment where students are provided opportunities and supports to help them reach their greatest potential. Every staff member is committed to student success, and draws upon a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion in support of student learning.

Every student at Children’s Village is unique and gifted, and demonstrates the capacity to learn, grow, and be a positive leader. The teaching and therapeutic team members at Children’s Village take time to genuinely get to know each and every student, and to build positive relationships that inspire trust and a willingness to take risks within the learning environment. We are committed to supporting the healthy development of the whole child; programming focuses simultaneously on academic, physical, social, emotional, and behavioural growth. Teachers develop meaningful and engaging learning opportunities that capitalize on existing strengths and interests, and are personalized to meet each student’s individual learning needs.

At Children’s Village School, the education of our students is a collaborative effort – a partnership between all stakeholders. We believe that input and engagement from all stakeholders is essential to the success of the school and of every individual student. Our parents, guardians, and caregivers are all valued members of our community. We invite you to actively participate and communicate regularly and openly with school staff.

Please feel free to stop by the office or give either of us a call if we can assist you in any way. We look forward to working together with you, to support your child’s learning.
