Sunshine Learning Center’s full-time tutors work closely with students to address their academic stumbling blocks and improve test scores. After identifying each pupil’s learning style and holdups, tutors tailor lessons to suit the student’s individual needs. While some may benefit from traditional instruction, students with test anxiety may need to work on confidence-building problems before tackling larger formulas. Using these and other tools, instructors can help students prepare for standardized tests or improve their grades in a difficult subject, such as math, English, or classroom-hamster care 101.
The Bee's Knee's Learn & Play employs Montessori techniques to fuse discovery and fun in an indoor academic playground setting. The romping ground's hour-long special classes (a $75 value/five-week session) cover a variety of topics, average around 12 students each, and emphasize principles such as constructive play, musical expression, movement, and a social curriculum of sharing, taking turns, and never sneezing. Mommy & Me sessions, which are grouped according to age, focus on caregivers as a child's primary teacher and source of melba toast. Toddler Transition is designed to ease children ages 2.5–5 into full-time school, while Spanish-immersion class challenges children ages 5–10 to navigate lessons, story time, crafts, games, and songs in a new language. No matter the lesson, each class follows a routine that includes a communal circle with songs, story time, a snack break, crafts, a trip to the treasure box, and cleanup. During optional open play before and after each class (a $25 value for a five-week pass), as well as during special sessions, children are free to explore the center's electronics-free plethora of playthings, including a Thomas and Friends train table, costumes, puppets, puzzles, an interactive play kitchen, and a life-size DMV.

Freshly back from vacation, a customer walks expectantly into the room. A golden retriever bounds clumsily up, its tongue flapping a rosy greeting and mouth stretched far back into a smile. When the dog’s owner takes up the leash, thanks the staff for caring for her energetic pup, and turns to leave, she feels a tug on the leash. Her dog has planted his feet firmly, trying to back into a sitting position—clearly, he wants them both to stay put.
According to proprietor Lisa Schettino, this is an everyday occurrence at Camp Canine. After a difficult experience finding pet care for her own dog, Lisa set out to create an environment that would not only keep critters safe, but make them want to stay. Now, each Camp Canine location has a resort-style atmosphere sprawled over 9,000–15,000 square feet.
Stressed four-legged friends wiggle with glee during massages, shedding stress from squeaky toys giving them the silent treatment. Against a bass rumble of purring, punctuated by canine yips, green-tea and chamomile facials drive dirt from wrinkled faces and soften wiry fur. As they wait for their next spa appointment, dogs can roam freely in a fenced-in play lot. After tearing through a maze of tunnels and obstacles, they splash into the pool and emerge to toss their cool, wet fur, bejeweling the air with spray. An air-conditioned indoor play area shelters pets from extreme heat and teenagers listening to vacuums at high volume..
Owners too can rest at ease during their pets’ vacation, knowing their animals lounge in private rooms with plush bedding and staff watching 24 hours a day.
