The admissions process feels so complex! Paula, I have absolutely no idea where to start, I’m so overwhelmed,  and I want the best for my child - can you help me!
— Parent

It does not have to be!

“How,” you ask? Let me explain…

When families started to partner with me over ten years ago for advice on how to increase their child’s love of learning in a way that would develop their children’s readiness skills, build confidence, and support each stage of development, I was honoured. When parents achieved their goals of private school acceptance, and their children found a love of learning, I knew I found my purpose and passion.

I have spent over 15 years studying and applying my knowledge and skills in early child development. For over five years, I have partnered with families in my boutique firm - Howell Academics, in reaching success to the top private schools in North America, Australia, the U.A.E. and China.

All families are unique, each having a story that is the tapestry of their joy. As parents our children are our hearts, and our world.

Thank you

for allowing me to be a part of your child’s journey,
