# Mathnasium Gives 4-6 Year Olds A Great Foundation

Oct 14, 2023 | Edmond

##### Experts agree - teaching a child critical thinking, problem solving, and number sense skills at a young age can transform their future.

We can’t wait to partner with you on growing your child’s math confidence. Studies show that children who are exposed to math early on are more likely to do well in school, not only in math but in other subjects as well. Early math instruction engages your child’s natural intellectual curiosity, which helps them make meaning of the world around them.

Mathnasium of Edmond’s Great Foundations program builds these skills through caring, face-to-face instruction speciﬁcally tailored to your child’s learning stage. The program includes:

• Verbal and tactile assessment of your child’s current number sense
• Personalized Great Foundations learning plan, specific to your child
• Overseen by a licensed teacher with 15 years of elementary education experience
• Two 45-minute sessions each week
• Month-to-month enrollment (no long-term commitment)
• COST: \$389 per month

How math is taught to young children is also critical. Educational experts agree that building a solid foundation, where children are taught to understand math — not just memorize facts — is key to future success. When your child participates in our Great Foundations program, we work to meet certain key milestones that are essential mathematical building blocks:

1. Attributes: Determining objects’ similarities and differences, qualitatively and quantitatively.
2. Spatial Relationships: Understanding the relative position of objects.
3. Classification: Sorting objects into different groups by their attributes.
4. Patterning: Recognizing interconnections among objects and with numbers.
5. One-to-One Correspondence: Connecting number values to the quantities of objects.
6. Ordering: Classifying objects by attribute, relative position, or comparative value.
7. Numeration: Bridging the gap between the number-object connection and arithmetic.
8. Shapes: Understanding how geometric shapes fit into 2- and 3-dimensional space.
9. Half: Comprehending the fundamental idea that half means “two parts the same.”
10. Measurement: Using language to describe the world quantitatively.
