Renfrew Educational Services is a not-for-profit society and registered charity that has been offering a broad range of specialized programs for children since 1974. Fully accredited by Alberta Education, Renfrew’s programs and services lead the field in program development for children with special needs and their typical peers.
With five centres in Calgary, Renfrew accommodates 650 students from Junior Kindergarten to grade 6. Renfrew offers several highly specialized programs both within our facilities and in the community for children with Autism, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) or motor disabilities. We also offer a broad range of programs and services for children attending other Calgary area schools through our Community Services department and share our expertise with the community through a full complement of highly regarded workshops for parents and professionals.
Early schooling is the critical time to teach positive learning skills. This can only be done effectively in a positive learning environment, which is a combination of many factors. Renfrew’s Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten and Elementary Education programs offer an environment that fosters enthusiasm, a love of learning and openness to new ideas where children can experiment and explore with the guidance and encouragement of caring professionals. Renfrew’s inclusive attitude respects all children in a rich and stimulating environment that is warm, loving and supportive.
Our low student-to-teacher ratios allow the individual needs of the child to be continually addressed. We also understand the vital role of the family in each child’s development so staff work closely with families to gain insight, offer education and support, and address individual family concerns. Highly-trained, professional teams work with classroom staff to facilitate learning and development. In addition to teachers and child development facilitators, we have speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, psychologists, family support specialists, assistive technology specialists, therapy assistants, a recreation specialist and a certified fitness instructor.
