Toddler and Pre-K Math Programs
Moving To The Rhythm Of Math
Ages: 18 – 36+ Months
In Launch’s innovative math & music program, children begin to foster a love of math as they learn about numbers and shapes. Parents and caregivers participate with their children during finger play, math activities, and games… all set to the tune of a live guitar! It’s never too early to start learning and loving math!
In the Moving To The Rhythm Of Math class tots explore concepts such as counting, reading and identifying numbers, and using a number line. Kids sing along as they absorb vocabulary related to spacial sense, learn the concept of capacity, and compare lengths, weights, and speeds.
Shapes & Songs, Let’s Sing Along!
Ages: 18 – 36+ Months
The complementary class to Moving To The Rhythm Of Math, Shapes & Songs, Let’s Sing Along! continues to teach tots math concepts with music as the foundation for fun. In this class children learn to identify shapes and their attributes, explore quantity, and discover one-to-one correspondence counting by using their fingers – all to the tune of a guitar. Toddlers learn to recognize patterns around them, practice sorting strategies, and explore size relativity. Parent or caregiver participation is required.
Movin’ Up With Math
Ages: 36+ Months (Offered Spring Only, For Children Entering Pre-K The Following Fall)
Launch’s transitionary Movin’ Up With Math class is designed to engage and inspire tots in a structured setting with more rigorous curriculum than Launch’s math & music classes. Movin’ Up With Math provides exposure to a variety of math concepts including comparing numbers, making equal groups, patterns, estimation, probability, height, and data analysis using charts and graphs.
With a student-to-instructor ratio of no more than 4-to-1, each child’s needs are addressed at their required skill level. The class does not require parent or caregiver participation however we request that a parent or caregiver remain present in the center during class time.
Math For Munchkins
Grade Pre-K (Offered Fall Only)
Launch’s Pre-K Math program is designed to engage young children with stimulating mathematical themes and objects they encounter in their everyday lives. Class sessions provide explicit instruction and age-appropriate activities that encourage tots to think about, talk about and explore math concepts and skills. The program introduces topics through small group activities that foster socialization and captivate kids by disguising learning as fun!
The Math For Munchkins class introduces children to the construction of math sentences with the plus, minus, & equal signs. Concepts such as elapsed time, the measurement of length and width, and 3-D geometry are explored.
Grade Pre-K (Offered Spring Only)
Expanding upon the topics learned in Math for Munchkins, the Mini Mathematicians class offers a deeper dive into concepts that provide the foundation for understanding basic mathematics. This class delves into topics such as subtraction, symmetry, skip counting, and graphing. Lessons involve working with fractions and volume, as well as more abstract concepts such as estimating the capacity of containers. Advanced educational software is introduced.
