In-Centre Instruction Resuming and Centre Updates

Jun 22, 2020

With the announcement that Region of Peel enters Phase 2 on Wednesday, June 24th, we are excited to announce that we will resume in-centre instruction on July 2, 2020. Our online tutoring option with the @Home platform will remain available.

We resume in-centre tutoring on July 2nd, alongside with our @Home (online) platform.

Enrolling or returning to in-centre instruction

Due to controlled class size for social distancing, we will not be able to accommodate the same number of students in the centre as we had before and will only have limited availability and time slots. 

If you are interested to enrol your child for in-centre instructions, the first step is to schedule for a free assessment for your child

Social distancing measures and protocols for students' and instructors' safety:

  • Class size per hour will conform to the restriction limit for group gathering set by the government. 
  • Sessions will have to be scheduled to control class size. We will not be able to accommodate drop-ins.
  • Parents will not be allowed to enter the centre for pickup or drop-off unless they have a pre-booked appointment with the Centre Director.
  • Everyone (students, parents, and instructors) is required to have a mask on in the centre. Health safety is our top priority.
  • Plexiglass (30" wide and 48" high) shields are installed on student tables to separate instructors from students.
  • Instructors and students are allowed to pull their masks down, during instruction so that only their mouth is covered when teaching. We believe that our tall Plexiglass will provide ample prevention.
  • Tables and plexiglass will be sanitized immediately after a student leaves, before seating the next student.
  • Instructors will be required to wash their hands every hour.
  • All students will be directed to the washroom to wash their hands once they enter the centre, before grabbing their student binder, as well as before leaving the centre.
  • Hand sanitizers will be available on every table.
  • Every student will have his/her own pencil and eraser stored in his/her binder.
  • Maximum of 1 student and 1 instructor per table
  • The rewards cabinet will be closed physically and continue to be used in the digital form for the students to choose prizes

Centre updates - Looks and Feels fresh 

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be re-organizing our centre for social distancing and also provide a new experience for students coming in for class. Parents and students can expect to see some of the updates below:

  • The current black and white wall art stickers will be replaced with coloured hand-drawn Mathnasium graphics.
  • Tables will be reduced and re-arranged for social distancing.
  • Computer stations will be installed and set up for Mathnasium @Home. We will still be offering classes online but we expect some of our instructors to be teaching in the centre.
  • Games and game table will be temporarily removed.
  • The rewards cabinet will be physically closed, but the digital version is active like before for students to choose their rewards

Teaching math is not just what we do, it is ALL we do. Let’s make this summer a transformational one.  Call us at 905.823.0005 or email us at [email protected] to schedule your free assessment and find out which program is best for your child.
