FunDamentals co-owner and operator Jennifer Goble doesn’t teach kids to count with flash cards. On the contrary, she believes that keeping kids active and engaged in their lessons not only helps them retain their newfound knowledge better, but helps them enjoy the experience of learning. This belief is the cornerstone of each program at her learning center. Lessons vary in topic based on age, from 1 to 5 years old, and may get kids involved in a number of physical and intellectual activities such as bouncing to delightful beats to bolster balance or learning shapes through colorful images. Interactive games, social time, and hands-on projects round out the center’s mix of fun and learning. Jennifer also actively involves parents in each lesson, giving adults a way to bond with their offspring and kids a strong spotter for learning to eventually bench-press their friends.
