Thinking Caps for Kids has been created by Michele Yock and Julie Whitcombe. Both have been full-time primary school teachers and have taught in classrooms using the Numeracy Project. Julie worked for the Ministry of Education introducing the Numeracy Project to teachers across Auckland, which has given her an in-depth understanding of the Numeracy Project Frameworks.
Together, they developed Thinking Caps for Kids Ltd to address the needs of children who would benefit from a boost in Maths.
They have carefully chosen experienced, well-liked teachers from their teaching careers to help them run small groups. All of the in-school tutors are well versed in the Numeracy Project and have a great ability to motivate children and create a positive learning experience.
