Tidy Maids’ licensed team of cleaners descends on bedrooms and living spaces to evict grime from floors with potent Oreck vacuums before freeing fans, baseboards, and sedentary pets of dust and cobwebs. The dirt hunters empty domestic trash bins and polish appliances back to their reflective primes. They pamper kitchens with a makeover that results in hand-washed floors, sanitized countertops, and fresh microwave interiors. Bathroom fixtures hiding behind soap scum emerge from their scrub downs beaming with pride, and mirrors succumb to the cleaners' fastidious wiping to fulfill their duties as a pellucid stage for morning monologues.

In 1976, educator, musician, and kinesiologist Robin Wes longed for a children's gym that prioritized personal growth over competition. Unveiled at a time when physical-education classes pushed students to focus almost exclusively on winning, Robin's program was swiftly adopted and is now used in more than 300 Little Gyms worldwide. Robin still pens original music to accompany lessons, which engage whippersnappers 4 months old–12 years old with gymnastics, dance, karate, and parent and child activities.
Each of The Little Gym's classes introduces simple movements that sharpen motor skills and set brains whirring, allowing kids to progress at their own pace until they can finally build a computer out of macaroni and glitter. Staff members strive to build a base for lifelong social skills and self-assurance with each exercise, including activities rooted purely in fun, such as summer camps or birthday parties, which helped The Little Gym to earn title of #1 Birthday Chain in Parents magazine.
