By engaging children on their own level, the teachers at Kids R Kids childcare center and learning academy recognize their students for what they really are: developing brains trapped inside tiny, perfectly spherical heads. The programs hew to a philosophy of "Hug First, Then Teach," meaning they encourage a child's development on an emotional, intellectual, social, and physical level. Also essential to their teaching approach is family involvement?when new skills are introduced, the instructors make sure the parents know about the approach and aren't politically opposed to arithmetic.
They rely on their own curriculum, Brain Waves, which takes a neurologically based approach that combines educational lessons with good nutrition, regular sleep schedules, and secure relationships. Additionally, the Brain Waves curriculum helps develop brains with many forms of language (including sign language) and exposure to technology in a controlled environment.
The jungle would be a safer place if the chin-high grass, towering trees, and wild animals were painted on the walls and everything three-dimensional was inflatable. This dream of a danger-free nature preserve comes to life at Jump N Jungle. Voted the Best Kids’ Party Place in the Bay Area Citizen Reader's Choice Awards, the jungle lets kids leap toward the rafters on inflatable jumpers, test the bounds of gravity on giant slides, and navigate an unending labyrinth of mazes and obstacle courses. Both locations play host to weekend birthday gatherings by supplying invitations, plates and plastic cutlery, as well as staff supervision in the party room and play areas. Additionally, its childcare services include an educational curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as before school and afterschool activities for older children.

When the staff at Sam's Cleaning and Hauling say that no job is too big, they mean it. Just look at their roster of services—they clean everything from private homes to big commercial spaces. For house cleaning sessions, they team up in pairs and arrive weekly, biweekly, or monthly according to their clients' wishes, using their own cleaning supplies and tools to scrub, vacuum, and mop surfaces. Heavy-duty jobs might require their carpet-cleaning services, or perhaps a 6–10-hour deep-cleaning session. They can also assist in cleaning out a home—before moving day. The team also takes on the task of setting cluttered attics or garages straight, keeping household items, family heirlooms, or memorabilia, safe and sound.
