The goal of every KidsTown Drop-In Child Care Center is to provide quality, licensed care to children, so they may have a safe and secure place to visit that's also fun, exciting, and entertaining. KidsTowns offers a flexible preschool schedule and curriculum, qualified staff tailors each day's lessons to those in attendance to create a more flexible preschool program. Here, children have the opportunity to learn new skills, play with different toys, participate in group games, create art projects, and interact socially with other children. Activities are scheduled throughout the day to encourage learning in new areas, while also providing social, physical, and cognitive development opportunities.
Another consistency is that each facility allows parents to drop off kids ages 1-13, whenever is most convenient to give parents an opportunity to select a weekly schedule that works best for their family. To further accommodate parents, some centers offer themed Saturday-evening sessions that keep children entertained at night, so adults may get away.

Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.

With the help of Cheyenne Fencing and Modern Pentathlon Center, students can become world-class athletes. As a three-time Olympian, its coaches are uniquely positioned to train up-and-coming fencers and pentathletes. Whether pupils hope to compete in fencing alone or study the pentathlon's five elements?fencing, shooting, running, horseback riding, and swimming?the center's offerings provide an excellent introduction. In fencing classes and camps, beginners pick up basic skills, such as coordination and footwork. As they progress, they learn the details of blade work and strategy, preparing them to face down competitors and maleficent trees. Pentathlon students add to those skills with lessons in the other four sports, improving their strength and stamina in preparation for competition.
Beginning in Columbus and now painting the town red in various cities throughout the county, Colors & Bottles scratches the creative itch of the public with its themed art classes that leave no blank canvas unvarnished. The mobile painting service, which The Ellen DeGeneres Show tagged as a "hip, new, and fresh" activity, stages its events at local bars, wineries, restaurants, and art galleries, helping boost neighborhood economies while creating a hard-to-follow trail for begrudging pottery wheels. During three-hour classes, an artist plucked from the local art community leads students through the creation of a themed painting, such as a city skyline or something more abstract. For an extra splash of inspiration, some venues allow students to bring their own drinks, while others have refreshments available to purchase.
