The Math-a-Magic program is designed to help students develop the key and necessary skills that would allow them to work efficiently, accurately and independently. The Math-a-Magic program is a curriculum based program and includes all the strands of mathematics as outlined in the Ontario Curriculum document. This program is administered to students using a key tool that will not only stimulate their thinking but also enforce independent learning skills; this key tool is the Learna worksheet package. The Learna worksheet package will be provided to each student in which they will be required to complete both, in-class work as well as their homework assignments. Each package given to students will focus on only one strand of mathematics to ensure that the student is thoroughly mastering the skills and concepts specific to that strand. Upon the completion of a Learna Worksheet package, the student will be provided with another package outlining the next curriculum strand in mathematics. Although the Learna Curriculum coincides with the Ontario curriculum, the strands in mathematics will be given to each student at Learna in the following order:
Number Sense and Numeration
Patterning and Algebra
Geometry and Spatial Sense
Since the Math-a-Magic program is designed to enhance students' independent working skills, it is important to note that each child is working at their own, individual pace. Students should only seek teacher assistance when instructions become unclear. During the session, it will be the teacher's responsibility to observe the students' time and accuracy. Based on the student's performance, teachers will also decide if repetition of any given concept is necessary. Each student will be given a time limit of approximately 30 minutes to complete their in-class assignments upon which they will be assigned homework for each day that they do not attend the center.
Language Power is a program that is designed to assist students between grade 2 and grade 8, with all of the essential skills that are encompassed within the subject of Language Arts.

Each assigned package will focus on targeting a specific skill(s), which may include the following key areas:

Teachers work collaboratively to locate and prepare material based on the assessment report. During lessons, teachers will observe students' academic performance and provide additional support wherever necessary. It is important to ensure that homework assignments are completed for the Language Power program in order to allow for consistent progress.
