An exciting new concept that makes learning math and technology fun and engaging for kids recently debuted with the grand opening of Zaniac Greenwich on West Putnam Avenue, a unique after-school enrichment program that is the first of its kind in the Northeast.

Paul Zane Pilzer, founder of Zaniac, said the program provides real education in a fun environment that kids enjoy, nurturing their love of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

“Zaniac is like school at its best, an active and inspiring place that is filled with friends and friends to be where real math and technology learning is fun,” Mr. Pilzer said. “Zaniac delivers a math and technology experience that engages and motivates K-8 kids making parents feel proud to provide them with real academic advantage.”

The co-owners of Zaniac Greenwich are Camilla Gazal and Flavia Naslausky, area residents with extensive backgrounds in the financial services industry. As mothers of young children, they both have a keen understanding of children’s education.

“Learning with gaming makes science more fun. With Zaniac Greenwich, parents won’t need to choose between learning and fun. Zaniac provides both a stimulating, engaging experience for kids and real STEM education. I can’t wait to see what the amazing things these children will come up with,” said Ms. Gazal.

The program offers seven exciting programs — Zane Math, Computer Programming, Minecraft Exploration, LEGO Robotics, Chess, Touch Typing and Homework Center. Each program is nine hours over the course of six weeks in a 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. Parents receive regular feedback from Zaniac’s instructors through emails as well as written materials produced by their child.

Cost for the programs ranges from $150 to $350. Zaniac Greenwich is the third Zaniac center in the nation and the first in the Northeast. For more information visit Zaniaclearning.com/greenwich.
