Children will build their own reaction contraptions.

Our first-semester Unit Study features Math-Minded ways of integrating a multi-disciplinary study. Classes are fun and provide hands on learning.
Our groups will explore these mathmagical topics with their class (Chrysalis K-2 or Tortoise 3-5th).


Join us for “Mathmagic,” a unit featuring lessons in Focus Studies, Art, Science, and Language Arts. Math is all around us and we’ll take children on a math adventure.

This course includes 34 hours of instructor-led of class, 20 hours of parties and events, access to 4-6 field trips, member clubs, and parent resource nights. The fee for the course is $700 (payable in 4 payments of $175 each).

Each class will feature an open circle time, a nature observation break outside, and a closing gratitude routine.

Family orientation is September 10, 2019. Classes begin September 17 and will take place from 9:30am – 11:30am.
