Fees and the University of Toronto

The school fees are set by the University of Toronto.  

The Laboratory School's connection to the University influences everything from our high academic standards to the spirit of inquiry that pervades our classrooms. The University provides our faculty with professional development opportunities, resources, research support, and library facilities which make our lively community of professional learners a unique school workplace in all of Canada. The children in our classes benefit from these university connections both directly and indirectly on a daily basis. 

The school fees do not represent the full costs of educating a child at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study.  The University of Toronto deducts what it recognizes the Lab School’s contributions to the academic work of the University to be and has calculated the fees outlined on this page.   

The school contributes on many levels to the academic work of the University by linking educational theory and practice for the benefit of:

  • Teacher-candidates in the Master of Arts Child Studies in Education program at OISE & other teacher preparation programs at OISE;

  • Researchers:  Jackman ICS serves as a site for research that is carried out by the academic staff and teacher-candidates from the Institute itself, by scholars from other departments at the University of Toronto and other academic institutions, and by the teachers at the Jackman ICS Laboratory School.  Lab School teachers regularly present at international educational conferences such as AERA and are co-authors on academic journal publications; 

  • Professional Visitors:  The Laboratory School welcomes thousands of visitors from the Ministry of Education and other ministries, public school boards, national and international researchers, OISE visiting scholars, policy makers, teachers, and teacher-educators;

  • In-service teachers through the publication and dissemination of resources such as “Natural Curiosity:  A Resource for Teachers” and The Robertson Program for Inquiry-based Teaching in Math and Science;

  • Educational policy makers:  Jackman ICS has works closely with the Student Achievement Division and the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat of the Ministry of Education and the Ontario Principals’ Association to create professional learning resources.
