January Business Feature Marian Montessori School

Marian Montessori is a private 'Christian' school directed by Marie A. Silva
Marian Montessori  School
 
Marian Montessori is a private Montessori School directed by Marie A. Silva. A beautiful home based environment, which facilitates a rich intellectual, artistic, spiritual and social atmosphere radiating love, care and concern while producing intellectual, strong, courageous and caring little people.

The prepared home environment, our theatre and outdoor back to nature environment act as the first educator. The warm and inviting family atmosphere set in this carefully prepared home environment with security and surveillance facilitates an easy 'Home to School' transition thereby maintaining a one hundred percent comfort zone.
Exploration and enjoyment is fostered through introducing a love for the arts of Music, Dance, Mime, Dramatic Art, French, Painting, Sculpture and Science in our fully prepared studio .
"Beauty is the voice that calls the child to engage with materials and elevates him to a higher level of grace and courtesy as he interacts in the environment"
(Haskins 2012, p.34)
Marian Montessori  School in Oakville
Connect to Nature
Our nature playground offers opportunities for outdoor science, art, gardening, creative play and physical exercise throughout the year! Creative, imaginative and joy filled activities continue throughout the year in our serene, tranquil, close to nature environment. Gardening projects include herb, vegetable and flower cultivation. Our exotic nature yard is the delight of our children and educators! Outdoor snacks and lunch are also provided in the warm weather, cooler autumn weather, as well as the renewed spring weather.
 
Our Method
Our method is based on the natural development of a child's knowledge during which there are known sensitive periods.

It is easier for a child to learn a particular skill during the corresponding sensitive periods then at any other time in his/her life, therefore the specially prepared environment also allows a child the freedom to select individual activities which correspond to his/her periods of interest.
Through a careful combination of work and play in our prepared and inviting environment, in the early stages, a child will develop concentration, coordination and work habits necessary for more advanced exercises to be performed at later stages.

A child's educator acts as a guide, a helper and a constant observer. It is the educator's responsibility to constantly test and observe a child's work, attention span and progress with the goal of bringing a child to realize their capabilities and unending potential. Therefore, it is the educator's responsibility to utilize the prepared environment to specifically support a child towards independence.

Governed by the needs and responses of a child, a broad range of materials will be made available. Each tool provided to a child has a built-in control of error feature, thereby reinforcing the educator's goal of helping a child to self-assist.

The educator is also required to create bespoke materials for a child's specific needs. In this way, there is a constant process of upgrading the environment with knowledge from the educator's observations and accumulated class documentation regarding a child.

OAKVILLE OSTEOPATHY - Family Health and Wellness Clinic


OAKVILLE OSTEOPATHY - Family Health and Wellness Clinic
OAKVILLE OSTEOPATHY - Family Health and Wellness Clinic
 
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy that treats the entire individual. Osteopathy restores normal structure and movement of the body, and facilitates the body to return to a state of health. Osteopathy searches for the root of the problems, rather than simply treating symptoms. The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of the pathology or pain, and to treat all the systems and theirs connections in the body.
                                
Osteopathic practitioners use palpation and manipulative techniques to restore balance to muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs. Lucia Orsini and Gaël Gaudeau uses a gentle, non-invasive approach which is well suited to all age groups and activity levels from young infants to the elderly, and the weekend warrior to professional athletes.

Lucia and Gaël are both manual osteopathic practitioners, who enjoy working with all members of your family, especially with pregnancy, re and post natal care and pediatrics

Located at 77 Bronte Road, just south of Lakeshore Road.

Business Feature: Welcome Home Halton

My name is Rachelle Spracklin, and I am your Oakville area real estate professional. I specialize in the purchase and sale of existing residential homes in the Oakville area. A Halton resident for the past 11 years, I have been involved in real estate since 2002, beginning as an investor of residential rental properties in the GTA. After working with many real estate
agents that seemed to always fall short of my expectations, I came to the realization that the world does not need more agents, it just needs better agents. With this in mind, I set out to build a real estate business that delivers on my core values of customer care, hard work, honesty, and integrity.
 
I am known for my outstanding customer-service, 24/7 availability, professional marketing techniques, and negotiation skills. In addition, I
offer my clients a range of personal services that most agents do not, such as one complimentary day with my contractor for last minute, small jobs in order to prepare your home for listing*. I also provide home staging, catered open houses, and professional photography in order to showcase your home effectively.
 
When you choose me as your Realtor, you can expect to work directly with me, not my assistant or a team member. I will answer your calls, texts, and emails now, not later. I will patiently and skillfully guide you and your family toward the right deal for you. I will achieve this by educating you with top notch market insight throughout the buying and selling process, so that you
can make informed decisions on the way to finding your dream home.
 
Let's Keep In Touch:
If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the Halton area, and are looking for a professional, hard-working agent, I would love to hear from you.

Oakville Eye Care

Oakville Eye Care                   

Oakville Eye Care
Our practice is dedicated to helping our patients achieve a lifetime of healthy vision by providing each patient with the highest quality eye care. Our optometrists, Drs. Yeung, Angra and Koh have a strong focus on family centered eye care, including extensive experience in pediatric eye examinations.                     
The current guidelines recommend the first eye examinations for children at age of 6 months, the second examination at age 3 years, and then yearly there after.

Do you know how well your child can see? It isn't always obvious to a child or a parent. Have your child's vision checked and know for sure. Good vision is an important part of learning...                    
  • 80% of classroom learning is done through the eyes
  • 1 in 6 children have some form of vision problem
  • Children with poor vision often find it difficult to focus on their work and may be misdiagnosed as having a learning or behavioural disability
  • Good vision is vital to developing skills such as reading, copying and hand eye coordination
     
How will my baby or child be tested if they are non-verbal or cannot sit still?

 
Babies and young children don't have to know the alphabet or even speak to have their vision tested by an optometrist. Many vision tests use pictures or symbols familiar to preschoolers, and children can respond by naming, matching or pointing. Other tests are done objectively, so young children don't have to be able to communicate well to be evaluated. We also use toys, videos and our clinical experience to keep your child's attention during the examination! My child already had a vision screening at school and passed. What is the difference between a comprehensive eye examination and vision screening? Vision screenings are usually performed by technicians or nurses and involve only one or two tests and cannot detect all problems - up to 40% of children with vision problems can pass a vision screening.                    

A comprehensive eye examination by your Doctor of Optometry includes medical history, visual acuity, eye muscle co-ordination, colour vision, depth perception, testing for a prescription and an ocular health assessment.

What is the process of booking an eye examination for my child?
OHIP covers one full eye examination annually for all children aged 19 years and under. This means that there is no out-of-pocket cost for the eye exam with a valid OHIP card. In addition, there is a program called EYE SEE EYE LEARN by the Government of Ontario to raise awareness among parents of the importance of having their children's eyes checked upon starting school.
Junior Kindergarten (born 2011) children enrolled or living in publicly funded School Districts, including Halton and Peel, are able to participate in the Eye See Eye Learn program for the 2015/2016 school year.

Participating children of 2011 birth year who require a pair of glasses will receive one pair FREE OF CHARGE courtesy of our participating industry sponsors Nikon Lenswear and OGI Eyewear. The frames are fashionable and are made with high quality and impact resistant polycarbonate lenses. They are covered under a full two year or two time manufacturer's warranty against defect.
