“Hi Lauren, I just wanted to tell you how incredibly impressed I’ve been with [a past student of yours]’s improvement and performance this year.
He has been one of the very small handful of children that I’ve witnessed coping extremely well after being mainstreamed.
I am so proud of him, his attitude towards life and his work ethic. I know you played a huge part in his success! May many more children be blessed by what you do!”
Deputy Head, Northwest Christian School
“From the word "go", Omatas took all that fear away. The environment appealed immediately: a huge, interesting playground, yoga or PE every morning, before classes start, and the joy of doing things practically and thus understanding them later in theory.”
“Trying out new ways of teaching and knowing that I'm not alone has been the fountain of hope and energy from which I draw whenever I want to give up.”
“I would recommend Omatas to every parent out there who is wondering what to do next with a kid who doesn't fit in with the normal school system, the difference they make is immeasurable!”
“Our family life has improved so much! It’s challenging to put into words how effective Omatas is, everyday another penny drops for my son and the world is becoming a kinder place for him. I do not embellish one bit when I say that Omatas has changed my family, my son and his prospects.”
“Omatas took the stress factor out of our picture.”
“Omatas Private Learning Centre is like a breath of fresh air, I feel that my son has grown such a lot in just 2 terms and we as a family embrace the different style of learning which makes school interesting and helps us to grow in so many ways.”
“My child has been at OMATAS for almost 3 years and have watched her every year being consistently benchmarked against her best potential and not being relegated to a hopeless special needs child.“
“He is a changed person now because he is encouraged to be himself and use who he is in his everyday life. He sets goals, does mind maps, studies and is overall a happier child. He loves going to Omatas because learning is unconventional and not restricted to a classroom setting.”
“While there have been many trials and tribulations along the way, Lauren and her team's passion for his well-being and education has been unwavering. They have taught him the fundamentals of accountability, responsibility, curiosity, and confidence and he has absolutely flourished under their guidance."
“Our son has grown so much in the time he has been at Omatas. Thank you for restoring his self confidence, developing independent thinking and teaching him learning strategies.
His increased ability to successfully interact with others and be able to work as a team, as well as independently has been so rewarding to witness. Physically he has also benefited so much from your program.
He now has more strength and endurance now and is able to support his core which has had a positive impact on his academic success. He loves going to school and participating in the varied programs.
He especially enjoys the practical applications of learning that your school offers. We love your approach of educating the whole child, not only academically but by teaching them life skills and general knowledge as well.
These are invaluable tools which they will be able to use and apply throughout their life as successful adults.”
“I really love and appreciate your school and your methods so much. Omatas is one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.
That said, hats off to you and your teachers for the excellent work you are doing as well. We would be at a loss without you. Thank you Lauren.”
