The suds specialists at Bright Cleaners liberate garments from their layers of grime in a variety of laundry and dry-cleaning services. Starting with a careful examination of each textile, staffers treat dress shirts ($1.69), pants ($2.89), blazers ($3.99), and dresses ($12+) with a process that is tenacious enough to remove stains, but gentle enough to leave apparel mildly ticklish. Customers can also opt to have nuptial artifacts ushered safely into the future with wedding gown preservation services. In four to six weeks, dresses will be dry cleaned, hand-pressed, and folded into a container designed to maintain the gown's form. Acid-free tissue paper ensures no discoloration over time, and a sturdy outer casing protects delicate threads during transportation or use as the sail of a makeshift raft.
By engaging children on their own level, the teachers at Kids R Kids childcare center and learning academy recognize their students for what they really are: developing brains trapped inside tiny, perfectly spherical heads. The programs hew to a philosophy of "Hug First, Then Teach," meaning they encourage a child's development on an emotional, intellectual, social, and physical level. Also essential to their teaching approach is family involvement—when new skills are introduced, the instructors make sure the parents know about the approach and aren't politically opposed to arithmetic.
They rely on their own curriculum, Brain Waves, which takes a neurologically based approach that combines educational lessons with good nutrition, regular sleep schedules, and secure relationships. Additionally, the Brain Waves curriculum helps develop brains with many forms of language (including sign language) and exposure to technology in a controlled environment.
Assured Self Storage has anything and everything necessary to safely store supplies for the short or long term.

The individual storage rooms, like summer romances, are available in month-to-month leases and range from the closet-sized 5'x5' unit ($34) to the expansive 10'x30' space ($189), which rivals a two-car garage in roominess and number of power tools.
Since 1989, licensed acupuncturist Bill Clement of DFW Acupuncture Center has used holistic techniques to help his patients improve the connection between mind and body. Bill uses acupuncture and herbal medicine to treat ailments that range from chronic pain and migraines to digestive disorders and asthma. Prior to each service, Bill evaluates patients' health concerns within an initial consultation and measures their comfort with needles by discreetly popping a balloon. During acupuncture, Bill inserts hair-thin metal needles at points along the body’s 14 meridians, which are energy points that run the entire length of the body. Specific adjustments to the needles can circulate balanced energy throughout the body. Allergy sufferers should inquire about the outfit’s allergy-elimination service, which rids patients of a variety of symptoms through acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and muscle-response testing, all without using medications or plotting pollen coups.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM?science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
