A specially trained teaching assistant delivers 24-30 half-hour sessions to a group of up to four children. The sessions focus on number and calculation, developing children’s mathematical understanding, communication and reasoning skills.

The sessions are lively and active, engaging children in real life contexts that are both stimulating and fun.

Each topic starts with a simple assessment that helps the teaching assistant to tailor sessions to the children’s needs.
