RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Eye Level (www.myeyelevel.com), the global leader in self-directed learning for children of all ages and skill levels, announced today the expansion of its educational services and launch of its new U.S. learning program, Play Math, specially designed for preschoolers.
The Play Math program is designed to optimize the learning experience for 3- and 4-year-olds by incorporating exercises focused on the development of motor skills and math creativity. As part of the nationwide initiative to improve early childhood education, Play Math provides preschool-aged children with the essential groundwork needed for learning and advancement.
"The early childhood years, specifically those before kindergarten, are the most important in a child's life – it's when they learn and retain the most information – and today, our country faces a challenge there," said Bob Reto, vice president of Eye Level. "Preschool-aged children learn best with hands-on experiences in a bright and comfortable environment. Our program introduces math through creative interactive applications, grows confidence and fosters a love to play, learn and explore."
Originally launched in South Korea 10 years ago, Eye Level partnered with Dr. Debora Kuchey, childhood education professor at Xavier University, to align the curriculum with the standards and trends of early childhood mathematics in the U.S. By the end of the program, students are able to recognize patterns and shapes, grasp basic arithmetic operations and comprehend spatial awareness.
Investing in early childhood education is crucial, but finding a program that meets the unique needs of a child can be difficult. Following an assessment test of each child, Eye Level customizes the best program for each student to optimize their learning experience. By incorporating diverse activities – including math stories, drawing, finger games and theme studies, among others – Play Math develops logical and mathematical thinking abilities and builds creativity and skills in preschool-aged children.
Enrolling children in the once per week Play Math classes can make a dramatic difference in the development of a child. Monthly tuition ranges from $140-$160 per student and will be available at select Eye Level Learning Centers nationwide.
Play Math will be available in select learning centers nationwide this summer. For more information on the Play Math program or to find a location near you, visit: www.myeyelevel.com.
