The Cayman Learning Centre has reopened its doors for the new school year.
“We are really excited to start a new school year”, said Mrs. Carrie Patraulea, the education director of Cayman Learning Centre. “Throughout our first year we have seen many of our students excel and we have taken great pride in their accomplishments”, she continued.
The Core Learning Program provides focused tutoring sessions in a 3:1 student teacher ratio to students from grade 1 through high school in core subject areas. Each student skill set is initially assessed in both language and mathematics, and resulting from this assessment a personalized program is developed to tackle the respective student’s unique skill development requirements.
During this new school year the Cayman Learning Centre will be introducing a new morning programme designed for ages three though five. The program is an extension of the Building Blocks Program, which ran during the months of July and August.
The new morning program will run daily from 9am to 11.30am in a 6:1 student teacher ratio.
Parents will have the option to choose the frequency of weekly sessions.
Its emphasis is to provide the young students an opportunity to develop and improve their fine motor skills, early reading, writing and mathematics skills while participating in fun learning activities including arts and crafts, group projects etc.
The programme is also designed to improve the young students’ confidence and build an appreciation for learning, getting them ready for their academic years.
“This programme was first run in the summer of 2006 and again in 2007 and has received a warm welcome from our students and parents. We have had numerous requests for its continuation during the school year and as a result we have decided to implement it throughout the year,” said Mrs. Patraulea.
