Mental Wellness Supports
The Brainery mindset is a welcoming and safe environment for all students and staff. We take each day as an opportunity to learn and grow together! We model & teach flexible thinking, problem solving, acceptance and inclusion and foster respectful relationships in our daily activities. Our small school size allows us to be flexible in our programming to meet the needs of unique circumstances.
Our staff conducts academic assessments using natural environment testing and qualitative and quantitative measurement tools. We utilize these assessments to develop individualized academic plans that cover concepts based on the Ontario Ministry of Education Elementary guidelines. Our JK/SK Program also provides individual social, emotional and personal growth goals to foster developmental milestones. We meet our youngest students where they are developmentally, and work on school and life readiness skills needed for future success.
As an inclusive environment, we welcome all methods of communication and accommodation, we value working in collaboration with parents/guardians and additional service providers to create a synchronous team approach.
The Brainery is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, age, disability (physical or mental), sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, marital status, and political affiliation as well as gender expression, mental illness, socioeconomic status or background, neuro(a)typicality, or physical appearance.
We model & teach the foundation of social responsibility by using an anti-oppressive approach in all of our programs. We utilize opportunities of growth and awareness to further model our mindset of acceptance and inclusion.
We’re united by the Brainery’s values, and we celebrate our unique differences.
The Brainery team is considerate of others, and contributes to a collaborative, positive, and healthy environment in which we can all succeed. We are committed to providing a welcoming and safe environment for all.
