Literacy And Mathematics Academy is unable to accept child care subsidies as the program, managed by the City of Hamilton, has been closed to new applicant schools since before LAMA’s founding.
The Daily Approach
Our students drive the learning, and our educators facilitate the experience!
Here are some highlights from our day:
This is followed by our first outdoor learning block. We practice what we preach, and show our students that learning happens everywhere! Some of our student’s outdoor learning favourites are: scavenger hunts, chalk letter writing, alphabet soup or STEM fun with Mentos and soda or other messy and learning forward outdoor experiments!
When we transition indoors, we have our literacy or mathematics focused in-class block. During this same time, our students start their one on ones with the lead teacher. This is where they work on their individualized programs, designed to fit their personal learning goals, at their own pace.
To end our day, before we meet our parents and go home, we have an outdoor social to recap the day’s learning.
What parents say
Hes in a class of 6 with awesome teachers that work on an interest based approach. Hes allowed to have his ASD quirks without being made to feel like hes doing "wrong" and they support them. They also support him socially by recognizing possible friendships that might be budding and creating opportunities for them to flourish. Those who have ASD kiddos know how hard social can be! I am thoroughly impressed, what started as an alternative to public school for him has become his home.
