This organization is helping Richmond children excel

We all know about the importance of physical fitness, but for the team over at UCMAS Richmond training the brain is just as important when it comes to setting children up for success.

UCMAS (Universal Concept of Mental Arithmetic System) is a globally recognized Abacus based Mental Math program for children aged 6-13 years. The program is scientifically proven to help children perform complex calculations mentally at the kind of speeds typically associated with math geniuses. The first UCMAS center opened its doors in 1993 and today it is established in more than 80 countries and 6000+ different locations across the globe, including one right here in Richmond.

But the benefits of this innovative and effective learning process goes way beyond numbers alone:

“UCMAS is a whole brain development program, proven to enhance not just the mental math calculating skills of children, but also their concentration, focus, memory, retention capacity, listening skills, speed & accuracy. UCMAS is a platform to educate and to empower a new generation of youth with not just math, but life-skills and develop future leaders with compassion, who over a period of time will make a better world for all.” says Krishna Kumar, Director of UCMAS Richmond.

“Strengthening these fundamental functions creates a lasting improvement in children’s learning ability as well as building their confidence and self-esteem, setting them up for success across every area of their lives. The system is very simple and needs practice daily.”

Students attending UCMAS will learn all of these skills in a structured and engaging environment. They also get the opportunity to participate in regional, national & international competitions, as well as have their achievements recognized at the highly anticipated annual graduation event.

“Your child will experience achievement and success and we can work together to give your child the best chance of succeeding in school and life. At UCMAS Richmond, we are constantly looking at ways to improve a child’s abilities and will be soon introducing a pre-school program iMaths (ages 4-6) and a Robotics program O’Botz (age 10+)
