Ontario ASCD

Ontario ASCD is proud to have facilitated the inaugural series of learning institutes at The Mabin School with support from Nelson which has led to the development of this movement and the esteeming of a relationship-based approach in education. Ontario ASCD is the only voice in Ontario that includes all schools and all educators, speaking on behalf of all students. Members come from public and separate school boards as well as independent and private schools. It is an affiliate of ASCD (the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development), a global organization that has been supporting progressive education in more than 127 countries with 114,000 members for over 75 years. Our board's strength comes from the diverse perspectives which we seek and which we feel makes us a strong organization. We value collaboration, creativity and actively promoting the values of a progressive education system here in Ontario and through global connections.

The Mabin School

The Mabin School is an established school where children, teachers and parents work together every day to create something special and different. It's a home away from home, where children love to learn because they feel known, respected and capable. Children's interests and imaginations are at the centre of our academically enriched curriculum which challenges each student appropriately and develops a passion for learning. Our structured environment feels just right - intimate and informal, full of colour and the sparks of activity. The Mabin School is an educational leader that develops confident and independent learners through a rich, hands-on program centered around our belief in Integration, Inquiry and Reflection. Exceptional teachers provide a strong academic foundation by promoting classroom themes that are of intrinsic interest to the children. Discover more about Mabin's progressive program and our academic and social curriculum at www.mabin.com.
