Writing and gross motor skills; math and nutrition; fine motor skills and social etiquette. Physical and social development may seem unrelated, but connecting the two can boost cognitive ability in growing children. That’s why WisdomGym Preschool always incorporates movement into its academic sessions. WisdomGym is just one branch of the Horizon Complex, which fosters a healthy community by teaching kids of all ages dance, gymnastics, and cheerleading skills.

Children as young as 4 months old can participate in gymnastics classes that help build motor skills through playful routines and exercises. At age 2, children can begin dance classes that progress to advanced levels of ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. In cheerleading classes—for ages 4 and older—students can practice tumbling and chants with the goal of one day learning to successfully chumble. As kids play, parents can wait out in the lobby and peer through the windows that open into most classrooms.

Wallinwood Springs Golf Club is home to a challenging, semiprivate 18-hole golf course that requires distance drives and surgical precision to save par and dissect birdies. The front nine plays to sprawling fairways, allowing the elements to affect the ball's trajectory and requiring accuracy to ensure the ball misses the flotilla of more than 30 quicksand traps. The back nine hosts a 26-acre lake that comes into play on five holes, and the Grand River tickles the edge of out of bounds on holes 10,11, 37, and 12. Test mental confidence and survivor skills on the 15th hole, a 185-yard par 3 that boasts a strategically placed island green.
