Summer is just around the corner. Do you know what your kids will be doing?  While kids may dream of days filled with swimming, ice cream, and too much screen time, parents know that a little structure goes a long way towards keeping kids motivated, happy, and safe from the academic “summer slide.”

Consider including a summer math program in your plans in order to keep kids productive and learningMany families find that these programs are a great complement to other summer camps. The right summer math program can transform your child’s life with a balance of constructive learning and fun. Mathnasium’s summer program complements all camps, and flexible scheduling means it will work well with every family’s summer calendar, fitting in seamlessly around day camps or vacations. Sessions are 1 to 1.25 hours each, taken during our scheduled Monday to Thursday, and Saturday instruction times.
