Children have a natural love of learning.  They are innately inquisitive, drawn to things that are new and different, and do not have the fear and reservations that we have as adults.   All of our programs are designed to harness this natural love of learning, while ensuring that it is directed towards the fundamentals in a creative and innovative way.

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:


Our morning starts with our teachers greeting their students and welcoming them into the school, helping them to hang up their belongings and join our LAMA Wake-Up Program. This program wakes up our bodies and gets us motivated and ready for learning! It culminates in our morning meeting, where we get our story mats, take a poll to check-in with our emotions, share some stories, and, then discuss the day ahead!


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.


Our afternoon starts with a nap or LAMA Cool Down program, which lets our little learners calm down, take in the day, reset their minds and prepare for the afternoon’s adventure! This is followed by another outdoor learning opportunity, before we return for our hands-on learning experience. Some student favourites have been creating our own habitats, personal Pinocchio dolls and mini novel study, role switch (where the students get to teach the teachers) or letter match.


To end our day, before we meet our parents and go home, we have an outdoor social to recap the day’s learning.

The LAMA team is passionate, caring and absolutely amazing. The individual attention each child gets, not only in class, but in one-on-one sessions truly makes the difference. Our son has grown so much from attending LAMA academy.

I said this to my friends and it needs to be said here. This elementary school is AMAZING and even after COVID my son is never returning to public school!
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.

Great place to leave your children (while we're off at work, we have to leave our pride and joys with someone) they get to learn play have fun. Parents get peace of mind knowing that they're well taken care of and loved and learning. 😍

I brought my Granddaughter in for a tour last month and we loved the school. From the brightly colored rooms, to the reading corners, to the amazing writing boards for learning their ABC's and 123's this school had it all. The staff were professional and caring and answered all our questions. The outside natural play area is outfitted to allow the children to discover and learn. We are excited to watch our Granddaughter grow and learn in this wonderful school.
