With nearly 30 years of experience teaching gymnastics, owner and director Naja Rossoff and her staff of kid-minded professionals train children of all ages and skill levels. They start with tykes as young as 15 months old, letting them explore movement with the help of a parent or imaginary legal guardian. They keep developing skills in older kids with advanced classes and a trampoline-and-power-tumbling team.
Otherwise, during circus-arts classes, they'll help students master the trapeze, tiptoe across tightropes, and learn of the ins and outs of circus performance.
Bounce Gymnastics also hosts open gyms so that kids can have their run of the facility's balance beams, nine trampolines, and padded floors. During birthday parties, the facility also opens up obstacle courses and organizes group games.
At PlayDates Child Care Center, licensed caretakers nurture youngsters from 6 weeks to 12 years old by integrating fun and learning into full-time, part-time or hourly care sessions. The play complex’s five rooms each host a different age range to facilitate age-appropriate play and keep babies away from the hazards of learning sixth-grade chemistry. To burn off youthful energy, youngsters can frolic in the outdoor play area or hone their motor skills in an indoor tricycle area. During local collegiate sports teams' home games, the center often extends their hours to allow parents to cheer on the home team without kids crying foul.
