Come along to Ability 2 Learn’s Open Day on Saturday 27 October, 10am – 3pm. They’d love to meet lot of Hills District Mums! Ability 2 Learn, based in Dural, provides tutoring for toddlers, pre-schoolers and primary school children. Ability 2 Learn’s ‘brain-based’ learning focuses on how each child uses their brain to learn and think, with tutors helping each child to find their personal strengths and talents.
About Ability 2 Learn
We know the value of education and Ability 2 Learn’s tutors believe that every child will learn, achieve and become independent. They encourage all children to exercise individual thought and use mistakes as a platform to create a course of action for improvement. While tutors explicitly teach, guide and support each child, it is Ability 2 Learn’s overarching goal that every child transition to independence, that is, being responsible for and capable of conducting their own learning. In this way, their teaching approach aims to develop each child as a whole with a strong focus on building their skills and knowledge for positive outcomes beyond the classroom.
Classes for the under 5s
Complimentary to children attending child care, toddler and pre-schooler classes offer stimulating and challenging activities in the areas of literacy, numeracy and science. Through exploration and active involvement, children learn to think and problem-solve while extending their physical, social and emotional, language and cognitive skills.
1 – 3.5 year olds
The ‘Ability 2 Teach’ program recognises parents as their children’s first and most significant educators and aims to enrich this connection.

The ‘Ability 2 Concentrate’ program fosters each child’s spirit of independence while also developing children’s stamina and encouraging school readiness.
