72 Our Kids Canada's Camp & Program Guide – 24th Annual WHY CANADIAN PARENTS CHOOSE PRIVATE SCHOOL Excerpt from Our Kids: Canada's Private School Guide School has a vital influence on the development of your child. It's at school that children make friends, learn about their strengths, discover their passions, gain confidence, find role models and set the stage for their future success at university and in the workforce. There is no doubt that the school your child attends will impact their future development in these areas. Private and independent schools can help take your child's educational experience to a new level. Here's how: Safe Learning Environments • Lower staff-to-student ratios provide a safer environment • Smaller student populations allow for a close-knit community feel- ing, with less chance of bullying • Safe schools improve the educational experience by removing distractions Educational Opportunities • Private schools offer different teaching methods, and finding the right one for your child can help them improve their grades and social development • Private school students tend to receive admission to the universi- ties of their choice • Small class sizes help students perform better because they get more individual attention • Private schools tend to focus on teaching good study habits ROSEDALE DAY SCHOOL PHOTO BY TIM FR ASER
