The purpose of all that we do is to MAKE KIDS SMILE…AND SMARTER!
EDwoodUCATION exists to ENGAGE, EXTEND and EMPOWER. We strive to engage students who are disengaged from learning, extend the abilities of those who may doubt their capabilities and empower them to achieve beyond what was considered possible.
How do we do this? By designing programs that are purposeful for the many and supportive for the individual. This is achievable by providing:
- Private tuition offers opportunities for both engagement and extension. We want to know the specific needs of each student and then provide the right support to empower that student to achieve.
- Holiday programs allow us the chance to engage, extend and empower as we introduce participants to a wide range of beneficial and positive activities. Kids are naturally inquisitive and the opportunity to provide a wide range of events to spark new interests and passions is how we may add value to their school holidays.
- Extension programs engage the academically gifted students through intellectual pursuits. The challenge of defining the unknown and finding solutions to that which is puzzling is stimulation for those who require extension. Those students are empowered to be more through our programs that include philosophy, engineering challenges, robotics and strategic and lateral thinking.
- Chess programs that entice students to have a go, provide a range of options to learn and offer multiple formats for them to play and compete. The aspiration of Carter’s Chess is not to produce the finest young chess players, but to produce the finest young people through chess. Chess is known to heighten IQ scores, improve concentration, enhance problem solving skills and even increase mathematical and literacy outcomes on report cards. Carter’s Chess is the branch of EDwoodUCATION that is dedicated to the development of chess programs in schools and in the wider community.
