The Children’s Room occasionally holds a Bedtime Math series of events for school-age children. Bedtime Math is a program whose aim is to “help kids love numbers so they can handle the math in real life.” Measuring, jumping, building, racing, creating… you never know what you’ll be doing in one of these fun programs! To find out if there is a Bedtime Math program scheduled in the near future, contact Mrs. Parker (207-892-1908).
