At Oxford Learning Centre, we take a decidedly different approach -- one that shifts the focus from WHAT the child is learning to HOW the child is learning. We don't ask the child to review and memorize the same old stuff, we help them build the skills they need to really learn and understand. We focus on helping children develop their own thinking and learning skills that will be used for this grade and for every grade.
