Aloha Mind Math's certified teachers lead students through weekly after-school classes that increase mental processing abilities through fun, interactive lessons, keeping classes small to ensure all students receive ample attention. Though primarily focused on math, teachers also host reading and writing classes that increase literacy, reducing the chance students will accidentally sign contracts to forever trade their chocolate milk for pieces of chalk.
Jamaroo Kids founder Jamaica Stevens has two passions?the art of dance and teaching?that she uses to inspire young children. Rather than just occupying kids, her company has aimed to entertain them and enrich their early lives since its opening in 2004. From daily sessions at Jamaroo's San Francisco studio to weekly classes at over 100 area preschools and daycares, trained instructors lead toddlers in fun, engaging activities like yoga, creative movement, and dance. Kids' creative impulses are indulged with singing and storytelling sessions and their young minds nourished with bilingual classes, arts and crafts, and non-Euclidean geometry. Jamaroo Kids prides itself on its contributions to the community and the world at large. Not only do they help educate the city's children, but instructors also donate their time to local nonprofits and community organizations.
