Welcome To The Sidney Ledson Institute

This site describes the special features your child will enjoy at our Don Mills campus. To see some of the entertaining activities that – for more than thirty years – have gifted our children with heightened perception, the winning trait of persistence, and intellectual brilliance at a newsworthy level, visit

The Sidney Ledson Institute is a private elementary school in the heart of North York for children from preschool to grade six. The school is the visible expression of the philosophy embodied in Sidney Ledson’s books, Give Your Child Genius IQ and Teach Your Child to Read in Just 10 Minutes a Day.

Here, in small class settings, children develop a lifelong love of learning. Simplified teaching systems created by Sidney Ledson permit youngsters – some little more than infants – to learn matters normally understood only by older children in public schools. The world becomes more interesting for our youngsters (and they themselves become more interesting to be with).

Since 1980, when the Institute was founded, thousands of children have secured superior intelligence and carried a tradition of excellence from their preschool initiation at the Institute through to various academically elite secondary and post-secondary institutions in Canada and other countries.
