How we do it.

2 hours of mastery learning is how academics are approached at Roots. Mastering academics is an important life skill and we expect that children will organically embrace rigor and excellence. It is entirely possible to provide routine, structure, and guidance without crushing a kid’s organic curiosity and zest for life. A love of learning is the norm, not the exception. 

2 hours each morning: These 2 hours of academics are broken up into 4 sessions with a 30-minute outdoor play/snack break in the middle. 

There is solid evidence that kids can excel in core subjects in 2 hours/day or less. Nobody wraps all this up better than Manisha Snoyer, CEO & Co-Founder of Modulo.
