Our school integrates therapeutic interventions and individualized educational programs for children with developmental and learning disabilities. Prospective students do not need a formal diagnosis or referral to access school services. We encourage parents to apply if their child is two or more years below grade level in areas such as academic, social-emotional, or physical development.

KCC welcomes children of all needs and abilities. School placement priority will be given to members of the Jewish community. Non-Jewish families who wish to apply will be placed on a waiting list and encouraged to seek support and services through our therapy clinic.

Preschool Program

18 Months – 4 Years

The Preschool Program is a highly stimulating, play-based environment full of rich learning opportunities. Children have access to a full therapy schedule and group therapies are built into the curriculum. This program operates as a licensed child care centre.

Kindergarten Program

2.5 – 5 Years

In our kindergarten classes, we prioritize pre-academic skills alongside social and emotional development, fostering language proficiency in both English and Hebrew, promoting effective communication and peer interaction, and supporting self-regulation skills for readiness beyond the classroom.

Elementary Track

Grades 1-8

Kayla’s Children Centre’s Elementary track uses evidence-based instructional practices and direct instruction programs to support students in the following areas: phonemic awareness, decoding, reading comprehension, spelling, written expression, mathematics, self regulation, social skills, executive functioning, and group therapies.

Applied Track

Grades 1-8

The Applied track offers students the ability to learn academic skills with a higher level of support and smaller group learning. While the Applied classes follow the standard curriculum as closely as possible, the focus is on choosing the academic skills that will be functional for each student. The emphasis is on laying the foundational building blocks for academics and social skills in order to create a positive learning experience.

Skills Track

Grades 1-8

The Skills track is designed to maximize students’ learning using an individualized approach to teaching. After an initial assessment and consultation with parents, the students’ programs will be developed based on their unique skills and abilities. Learning will happen in small groups of 2 to 3 students which are grouped according their needs and learning styles. Students who require a higher level of support can also receive that in this program.

High School

Ages 15-21

We are a fully accredited high school where students can earn credits and receive a diploma, opening doors for future employability and improved quality of life. For students from our applied track, High School continues to have a focus on pre-vocational and independent living skills.
