Primrose Schools® Announces New Innovative Partnerships to Enhance Summer Learning

March 20, 2024 // // ATLANTA - Primrose Schools announced a new partnership with Mathnasium Learning Centers® to launch its first-ever mathematics-themed curriculum as part of its Summer Adventure Club, where children ages 5–12 get the chance to bring math learning to life.

Drawing upon Mathnasium's specialization in hands-on math-only tutoring and its vision to build students' understanding of math concepts in a way that makes sense to them, the new curriculum theme, named "Our Fantastical, Mathematical World – Powered by Mathnasium," will engage children in using patterning to create mathematical art, construct Origami, design and fly their own kites, and more. Research shows exposing children to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) at a young age supports their academic growth and develops early critical thinking and reasoning skills.

"STEM-based activities teach more than science and mathematics concepts; they open a new window to help children tap into their natural curiosity, creativity and imagination," said Amy Jackson, chief early learning strategy officer at Primrose Schools. "Our partnership with Mathnasium will allow us to immerse children in engaging, real-life application of mathematical concepts in a fun, exploratory setting."

Demand for STEM-based learning offerings continue to rise, especially during the summer months when children typically lose 2-3 months of math skills. Students who don't keep up their math skills during the summer often return to school unprepared to learn new material, resulting in a decline in both performance and confidence.

"Our partnership with Primrose Schools provides an opportunity to leverage our resources to empower students and foster a love for learning and mathematics while building confidence," said John Bianchette, Vice President of Education and Training of Mathnasium.

Primrose Schools is also partnering with i9 Sports® to enhance Summer Adventure Club themes that combine fitness and fun with social-emotional learning. i9 Sports provides age-appropriate instruction that makes sports fun for children and offers convenience for busy parents. In the new "Superhero Training Program" and "Sparking Change" themes, students will practice working together as a team and strengthen their physical development through high-engagement games and activities.

"At Primrose Schools, we use a combination of fun and physical skills development to grow Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts®," said Jackson.

Summer Adventure Club at Primrose Schools is more than a summer camp, providing a fun, full-day experience for grade level children in kindergarten through fifth grade. Each week, children try a variety of hands-on activities including sports, robotics and arts that help build skills around literacy, creative problem solving, STEM and more.
