The Elementary School Partnership
Our goal is to be a supportive partner as you embed our key philosophies into your everyday educational practice. The result? Students are more active, engaged, creative, confident and connected, which research has shown makes them better learners.
Different levels of EDGEucation are available from working with students only, to building ultimate capacity working with and supporting teachers to effectively integrate movement, well-being and positive community right into teaching curriculum.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of each aspect.

The gym will be buzzing with positivity (and sweat) as 3-4 classes get together at a time to get their GROOVE on in a highly engaging and inclusive community builder! (suitable & adaptable for all ages & abilities) Students are not only physically active moving to different music styles, but also nurturing positive character traits, building creativity, problem solving, self regulation & social emotional skills. Additional character education components are incorporated for older students helping them to let go and break out of their shells.

We are continuing to create more subject specific resources and student activators themed to that subject. Next up...Social Studies! The student activator is already ready and was piloted during the Spring/Fall of 2017 aligned with the Canada 150+ celebration. It was a huge hit!!
– Up to 18 classes can participate in the day. We can have a maximum of 5 activators with 3-4 classes in each. For schools over this population size, we will run the activators over 2 days.
– Cost is based on school population. Please fill in the form below with your school info and we’ll be back in touch with a customized quote.
