Business of the Week

 

 

 

Students look forward all year to the last day of school. With school out for the summer, they can finally play in the sun, relax with their friends, attend summer camp, and most of all, enjoy their evenings homework-free! Summer, however, can also be a good time for children to finally catch up with their peers in reading or Math, especially for those who have struggled during the year.

This is where parents’ intuition comes in. For struggling readers or those with reading disabilities, remedial reading instruction with a phonemic approach may be the answer. Many parents suspect that their child has a learning difficulty despite their good marks, but face a conundrum at the end of the school year: do they allow their child to take the summer off and play, or do they attempt to address the learning issues over the summer?

Summer, far removed from the pressures and routines of daily school life, is an excellent time to address learning issues, and all it takes is a few hours a day. At Strategic Learning Centre, your child will still be able to enjoy their summer and get the help that they will need to conquer the next grade. As well, they will be less anxious when the new school year begins. What could be better than that?

If your child has undergone tutoring for several years and no improvements are seen or he/she is still struggling, then it is time to discover their underlying difficulty. Once you have that information, then the learning challenge can be remediated. At Strategic Learning Centre, our brain training and remedial programs have been proven to address students’ specific needs. If your child continuously struggles in school, then it may be time to search beyond tutoring for a solution.

Strategic Learning Centre offers the following summer programs. If your child has been struggling this year, we can pinpoint the root of the learning problem.

Families are increasingly looking for engaging experiences that reflect their family values and embrace their lifestyle, with fresh and creative photographs. It used to be that families would reluctantly trudge to the retail studio for their annual photos; kids dressed in uncomfortable and often matching clothes (the only time you’d ever wear an outfit like your brother?!), restless, while frustrated parents try to corral the kids long enough to smile for the camera. No longer!

You are constantly obligated – work, school, activities, and technology. Lucy’s philosophy is to use a photo shoot as a fun-filled and unplugged experience – an opportunity for the family to connect, laugh, and just be together, in a world that constantly pulls at you. With photos that truly reflect your family’s vibe, it’s a way to keep your children little, even when they get big. And they get big in the blink of an eye.

Some people go to a retail studio because they’re unsure of what the custom photography experience is like. My clients are pleasantly surprised (especially husbands who tend to be initially resistant to photo shoots), wondering where the time went, and cheeks sore from laughter! Although she may first be greeted with shyness, by the time she leaves, the kids might be her bff’s. And maybe you too!

“My first experience with a family photo shoot was with Lucy and it was really amazing. Lucy has a way of making the kids (and the parents) feel very comfortable and at ease while she’s taking photos. She never asked anyone to “look into the camera”. It’s almost like you didn’t even realize you were being photographed. I had a few ideas of what I wanted, which Lucy took into consideration, but her creativity, playful and at ease techniques of getting everyone in their natural surroundings was what really created such beautiful results.” ~Ania

Lucy wants to be your family photographer. A trusted person to call for your annual family shoot or when celebrating other special moments, such as a new baby or a wedding. Being a mom herself, she understands the importance of capturing the true personality of your family, and will put every ounce of herself into achieving that.
