GREENWICH, Conn. -- Zaniac, an after-school enrichment program that aims to make learning math and technology fun, will open its first Northeast location in Greenwich.
The new program will offer four courses, Zane Math, Minecraft Exploration, LEGO Robotics and Chess Instruction, lasting nine hours over the course of six weeks in space designed to inspire imagination and exploration.
Programs, which meet after school on weekdays and Saturday, are taught in small groups of no more than five children per instructor.
“We know that kids learn very effectively through play,” said Paul Reddy, Zaniac’s CEO, in a statement. “Zaniac is like school at its very best, nurturing, stimulating, safe and energetic, but with a real math and technology learning focus.”
The Zaniac experience serves to supplement the efforts of today's educators by providing children with an after-school activity that feels like play Reddy added in a statement.
The co-owners of Zaniac Greenwich, Camilla Gazal and Flavia Naslausky, will open the nation's third location in November
Ms. Gazal, mother of three young children, has served in senior management positions with several major financial service firms in New York City.
Ms. Naslausky currently works as Director of Latin American Currency Strategy at Royal Bank of Scotland in Stamford. She is the mother of two children.
