Bloorview School Authority is an educational facility that provides innovative school programs to children and youth with special needs.

Each year hundreds of children and young people from across Ontario benefit from our individualized educational programs, which are set up in conjunction with ongoing therapeutic and medical care. Students may be clients, inpatients or day patients of Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital.

Bloorview School Authority offers a unique setting for students in Kindergarten to Grade One. The full day program is based on The Ontario Curriculum for Kindergarten and Grade One. Our approach is holistic and child-centred and based on the students’ individual strengths and needs. Our small classes allow for an academic focus on the acquisition of early literacy and numeracy skills to create the foundation for early learning. Library, music, visual arts, adapted physical education and aquatics enrich the weekly school timetable.
