About Us

Zareinu is supported by a dynamic team that works to raise awareness and funds to provide opportunities for children with special needs and their families.  Through exceptional events, fundraising initiatives and advocacy to combat prejudice towards children with challenges, Zareinu offers the unique environment and opportunity to receive an adapted general and Jewish education together with their required therapies and treatments under one roof.

Zareinu Educational Centre of Metropolitan Toronto provides individualized therapies and treatments with an adapted education rich in Jewish teachings and traditions.

Our Mission

To improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and their families by providing the most up-to-date therapies and learning strategies so they may achieve their individual potential.

What We Do

Our highly trained and experienced staff provides individualized therapies and special education to children with a wide range of physical and developmental challenges from birth to 21 years. Therapists and special educators work together using the most up to date methodologies. Where possible, the team works to integrate children into regular programs and schools. For a full list of our programs see Our School / Program.

How We Help

Every child has the potential to learn, develop and grow. We invite parental participation in planning individual programs. Our coordinated, cooperative efforts allow us to provide therapies and learning strategies that can improve the quality of life for every child and family.

  • Zareinu continuously strives to battle prejudice. We advocate for the acceptance of children with special needs by involving the community in school activities and events.
  • We encourage inclusion through opportunities for supported integration, where possible.


We believe that every child is a valuable member of our community. Each has the right to receive an adapted education, opportunities for improving life skills and communication, and respect for their individual strengths.
