A new private school for children with learning disabilities will open on the Peninsula in September.

The White Rock Eaton Arrowsmith School is the latest of a series of schools, based on the educational principles of Barbara Arrowsmith-Young, who opened the first Arrowsmith School, in Toronto, more than 30 years ago.

The schools follow Arrowsmith-Young’s belief that a regimen of mental exercises can change neural networks, improving cognitive functions of children with learning disabilities and attention disorders.

The White Rock school will be located at 1538 Foster St. (Unit 300-301) teaching 25 to 30 students for an average of three years, after which they will transition back into a regular educational environment.
