About LearnStar

We Are...

LearnStar is an educational after school program that runs Monday to Friday, from school dismissal to 6 pm.  We are different from other after school programs.  First, we are located right in the school so there is no travel involved for your child.  Second, we do homework, one-on-one, in French and/or English so that children come home with their homework and reading done, checked and signed.

LearnStar was created and is run by, Caroline Whelan, a university professor of 25 years.  All instructors are hand-picked and trained by Caroline to share her vision of stress-free learning and happy families.  All have extensive experience working with children and have recent certificates of conduct, vulnerable sector checks, and are First Aid and WHMIS certified.  We offer a 1:7 instructor-student ratio for homework.

We know how crucial it is to develop a genuine love (or even like) of learning as early as possible.  Research shows that the right after school homework program promotes good study habits, strong work ethic, problem solving skills and strategic thinking.  All of these traits lead to success in school and in life.

We understand the pressures and demands on today's families.  If you are like most of us, your family schedule is bursting at the seams.  It is simply not possible to be everywhere and do everything.  Homework is important but it is a key stressor.  Give it to us!  Let an expert help your child with homework, tests and projects so that you can have quality and stress-free time with your child!

And so the adventure begins. 

Let it begin with LearnStar!


Kindergarten is a time when children acquire early educational skills, that help prepare them to be ready and eager to move on to grade one, and beyond. They are natural and motivated learners.  Fostering and preserving this mindset is one of the most important goals of the kindergarten year. 

That's where we come in!


LearnStar has a program designed especially for kindergarten students!   


 Our kindergarten trainer is a retired teacher of 48 years, 40 of them at the kindergarten and grade one level!  We hire and specially train select employees at every LearnStar site to engage entirely with our kindergarten students.  We provide special programming including outside play, nature walks, reading, counting, critical thinking, self-expression, arts and crafts and Lego blocks.  This programming is specially designed for kindergartners to maximize stress free learning.  At LearnStar we know you do not entrust your child to the care of  others lightly. 

We promise to:


- Help your child foster, explore and preserve the love of learning and growing - academically, socially, emotionally physically and cognitively.  

- Reinforce concepts that they learn in school, in a positive, fun and friendly environment with their own peers.  

- Provide the highest quality of safety, security and service for which we are known.
