Ages four to six years
Most young children learn to count numbers with the help of their fingers. Often it is difficult for them to comprehend numeric relationships beyond the number ten for lack of concrete countable objects. The abacus presents multi-digit numeric relationships in a concrete bead-based system. By using an abacus, young children can relate number values and comprehend mathematical concepts more easily. This is a very critical time in the child’s development as children learn essential problem solving and visual/spatial skills during this time. Optimal learning can occur when the child is engaged in an Active Brain Center classroom.The Little Learners Program is ideal for kindergarten children (ages 4-6 years) to identify texts and numbers and handle simple arithmetic calculations. A specially designed abacus for easy use as well as engaging classroom activities allows children to succeed. Courses are 4 months in duration with a total of two levels. One class will be held per week with each session lasting 120 minutes.
