Established in 1980 and nationally accredited by the NECPA, Creative Kids Learning Center fosters the development of children aged 18 months to 12 years while meeting each of the standards set forth by the "10 Signs of a Great Preschool." Inside colorful classrooms or outside on playgrounds, inspiration flows freely as kids participate in a curriculum that features such subjects as initiative, music and movement, and creative representation. The center's hands-on philosophy emphasizes five key components, including professionalism and education, which consistently shine through the words and actions of a staff that is certified in first aid, CPR, and refereeing wrestling matches between imaginary friends. Safety and health are also cornerstones of the business, resulting in toys, equipment, and classrooms being sanitized frequently.

Astudia Dance World embraces all types of music—even kinds that haven't been written yet. Their Jam class trades order for on-the-spot creativity, encouraging students of any instrument to show up and practice the art of improvisation. It's a far cry from the more structured TRAC class (which stands for theory, reading, arranging, and composing), but both offerings celebrate creativity under the supervision of expert instructors.
Directed by Jane Maurer and William Blair, this team helps pupils of all ages explore the wide and varied world of music and dance. Their lessons cover classical styles such as jazz, tap, and ballet in addition to acrobatics, hip-hop, and musical theater, wherein every actor is required to carry a tuba. Meanwhile, instrument classes focus on the piano, guitar, or drums. All of these skills come together in recital performances, where parents can witness their children's progress and cheer them on.
Since the 10th grade, Katie's eye has been practically glued to her camera's viewfinder. At that time, she learned the intricacies of film cameras and darkrooms. Today she applies that hands-on approach to digital photography and lighting to craft the best shots possible. Those photos have a soft focus and natural finish. It's a classic look Katie learned from working in film, and it's ideal for portraits of families, newborns, kids, and couples. She also applies that traditional touch to weddings and engagement sessions.
Although Drivers’ Education classes help students become licensed drivers, they don’t teach them any actual car control skills. That’s where BetterSaferDrivers.com comes in.

During interactive defensive driving clinics, students practice their newly gleaned techniques on sprawling parking lots, learning how to brake fast, deal with skidding, and avoid accidents.
