*e x p a n d* supports learning as children move towards their teen years. The focus is on developing thinking and problem solving skills that are geared to the world around them. It emphasizes the development of a positive self image and skills to deal with emotions and relationships. The program builds sound habits that support children lifelong. The program’s unique blended curriculum includes concepts, skills and behaviors that regular education does not touch upon. The aim of the program is to help youngsters evolve into better equipped, more empowered and happier individuals.
