Meet Renfrew Educational Services

Renfrew Educational Services is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that has been providing educational programming and specialized services to children and their families since 1974. What started as a one-room kindergarten class has transformed into a five-facility organization that accommodates more than 650 children each year.

We offer ECS programming, elementary education (grades 1 – 6) and specialized programs for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and motor disabilities. Our programs are founded on the beliefs that all children deserve access to an educational program that addresses their areas for growth, and that learning can be maximized in an inclusive environment where typical and exceptional children learn side-by-side.

As an independent school, we modify the curriculum set out by Alberta Education to meet the special needs of each child. Teachers work with in-house specialists such as Psychologists, Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Child Development Facilitators, Early Learning Specialist, Physiotherapists, and parents/guardians to develop individual program plans for each child. We also encourage family involvement and welcome parents into our classrooms to assist with their child’s learning.

Aside from our education programs, we provide an array of assessment and therapy services to children, adolescents and young adults facing all kinds of challenges, and contract our services to independent schools, private ECS operators and school districts across southern Alberta.

Renfrew is different and we’re proud of what makes us unique. Our highly-skilled staff are passionate about working with our children and families, and are committed to helping every child succeed. Our small classroom sizes allow for a higher adult-to-child ratio, and our vibrant, specially-designed facilities allow room for play, creativity and personal development. Overall, we want to create exceptional learning opportunities, opening a world of possibilities for every child. We’re in the business to “Helping Kids Soar.”
