A new after-school math learning centre in Langley is celebrating their grand opening by hosting a community math festival on Monday.

The centre operates on the core belief that virtually any child can become great at math.

“We’re excited about this opportunity to introduce ourselves to the Langley community and demonstrate to area residents how Mathnasium forges a positive attitude toward math among kids,” said Dr. Sylvia McLellan, the owner and centre director.

“We’ve had great success in boosting students’ math skills and their understanding of mathematical concepts. Math can be intimidating to both students and parents, so we hope the grand opening celebration will show some of how the Mathnasium method makes it interesting and fun.”

The centre will hold an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. with light refreshments, math games for all ages and skill levels, prizes and giveaways.

Mathnasium offers kids from Kindergarten to Grade 12 fun and effective after-school math programs. Its sole focus is math, and its unique method combines mental, verbal, visual, tactile, and written techniques to maximize success. Programs are tailored to each child’s individual needs and are designed to make math make sense to each and every child, build confidence, and enable independent problem-solving.

Additionally, Mathnasium offers kids who are already good at math the chance to accelerate even further, challenging them to work their math muscles and become all-stars.

“We look forward to offering parents and students the chance to see how we function, meet our instructors, learn about our curriculum, and observe firsthand some of the accomplishments we’re so proud of,” Dr. McLellan adds.

The Langley location — which is at #120-8661-201 St. — is the fourth in the Lower Mainland and one of 20 Mathnasium franchises across Canada. There are nearly 500 locations in the U.S. and abroad.
