Amongst the hustle and bustle of getting ready for the holidays with family and friends, many people take the time to find out how they can give back in Oakville this holiday season. Whether you choose the same cause every year or you are looking for a new way to help others this holiday season, there are plenty of Oakville food and toy drives happening that would love your support.

Things to keep in mind before you donate are:
  • Check the food bank's website for their list of most needed items.  While all donations are appreciated, they appreciate being able to provide all times of food items to those who need assistance.
  • Toy drives usually receive lots of donations for babies and younger children.  Items for kids ages 10+ are the most needed.  Jewellery, gift cards, games, school supplies and warm clothing items are good ideas for this older age group.  You might be able to find something unique at one of the local Oakville craft shows happening over the next few weeks.
Be sure to involve your children in your giving back project, it is never too early for them to learn compassion and why giving back is important.

Back to school is here!  If you think your child may need some extra help this school year, Oakville tutors provide many different options.  Children can be tutored at home or in a tutoring centre and they can also be tutored in a specific subject or provided assistance in general critical thinking and homework support.

Before you hire an Oakville tutor, here are some questions to consider:

  • Does my child needs a tutoring specialist to tackle a specific subject like math or English?
  • Do I have the space at home for an in home tutor to come in and assist my child?
  • What are my expectations of a tutor? Will your child's grades at school increase and by how much?
  • What type of assessment happens before the tutoring starts to determine what my child needs?
  • What are the cost and payment options for hiring an Oakville tutor?
Tutors in Oakville offer a great resource for children having difficulty in school.  Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for help.  A tutor could help make this year the best school year yet! If you are looking for more resources for Oakville Kids, check out the Back To School Guide.
