Setting up any of our programs is simple and straightforward, and can be turned around quickly.
Our strong preference is to start with a phone call. We like to adjust our programs to fit into each and every setting, and a phone call can help us quickly get a better idea of the type of program that you want and answer any specific questions you may have. It also means that you get concise information that you actually want and have asked for, rather than going back and forth with emails or overloading your device with generic information that might not be relevant.
Don’t worry – actual people answer the phone at Extra Ed! No prompts, no long menus, just real people. If that real person doesn’t answer, they are on the other line. Feel free to either try calling again a short time later, or leave a text (preferred) or voice message. We get back to people fast!
If you still prefer email, please don’t hesitate! Many people do.
Extra Ed is an approved partner of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB). That means that our programs have special permission to run in any TDSB school as in-class enrichment during the school day (as well as extra-curricular lunch/after school programs).
Extra Ed is also an approved provider in every school board where we operate (where partnerships are necessary).
Extra Ed carries valid insurance for all programs.
Extra Ed is in full compliance with the Child Care and Early Years Act and all of its requirements.
Extra Ed is a partner of Toronto Police Services. All instructors and administrators receive vulnerable sector checks before they are hired.
Extra Ed has built a name as an industry-leading “full service” provider. That means that we love details!
For in-class workshops, we “gift-wrap” programs to schools by doing all the front-loaded, painstaking work of scheduling, shifting and adjusting to those ever-changing days of the week. And we usually do this for multiple classes over multiple terms. We happily take on all those tasks that school administrators don’t want to do!
For lunch or after school programs in schools, we do everything. We file permits. We disseminate program information, we handle registrations, we send out reminders. We do pick-ups and drop-offs. And we’re just getting started. Long story short – we do it all, so you don’t have to!
Extra Ed runs programs in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the GTA, including in York Region and Peel.
We also operate in libraries, community centres, and other settings that range from corporate special events to private one-on-one or group sessions.
Extra Ed is eminently flexible when it comes to how our programs are delivered. We make every effort to cater to the needs and wants of the people we are working with.
Our in-class programs can run as one-day events, or can be spread out over multiple sessions over multiple weeks. It really depends on each school’s preferences.
Our extra-curricular clubs usually run once/week, either at lunch or after school – again, depending on each school’s preferences.
