Recognized by Cincinnati Family magazine with a Best of Parenting 2011 award, Youthland Academy has been practicing a learning-by-doing philosophy for 30 years. At childcare sessions throughout the year, kids engage in age-appropriate educational programs that help preschoolers turn thought into language and middle schoolers reach their full potential. The full slate of programs are offered at nearly two-dozen locations across the Midwest and South.
Jelly Bean Junction specializes in tutoring programs for moldable child brains; however, they also provide daycare services for infants through kindergarteners and summer camps for school-aged children. Infant care ($215 per week) is individualized to each wobbly bairn; infants are fed, changed, and napped on their own schedule, all of which is tracked on a daily report. Toddler care ($190 per week) lets the wee ones explore and grow in a carefully planned environment, which includes mealtime, naps, and sensory-rich games. Preschool care ($160 per week) is designed for ages three to five and incorporates developmentally appropriate experiences and learning materials as well as outdoor play. Kindergarten care ($145 per week) involves nutritious snacks, computer games, and creative materials that focus on art, science, and more.
At its three locations, Martinizing Dry Cleaning gives linens and clothes no excuse to remain unbathed thanks to a mélange of grime-obliterating services. Caked-on dirt and hotdog-shaped mustard stains leap from blouses, skirts, and suits thanks to a waterless solution that leaves garments pristine. Martinizing Dry Cleaning's team of experienced and meticulous cleansers handles each task with care, preparing newly revivified items for pickup, delivery, or teleportation.
Busy Bee Cleaning Company's fully insured and uniformed dust-busting brigade relies on recycled elbow grease to safely spruce up homes and offices. Upon arriving at the dingy domicile in question, two professionally trained and trustworthy mop whisperers meticulously attend to every soiled surface, wiping down grimy counters, polishing streaky windows, and steadfastly scouring Jello stains from the bathtub. The duo of dirt decimators diligently employs products culled from each home's own cleaning closet to leave rooms smelling like the owner's favorite brand of furniture polish. Or customers can opt to have the clean team tote its own environmentally friendly cleaning products (a $10 charge, not covered by the Groupon), which banish dust bunnies without leaving behind toxins, creating a safe atmosphere for children, animals, or animals dressed as children.
The technicians at Total Maintenance Solutions strive to pay close attention to clients’ requests as they landscape lawns and clean living spaces with eco-friendly products. The company can also deploy a truck-mounted hot-water-extraction system to remove grime from carpets, concrete floors, and hard-to-reach areas on your back.
Times of play are different depending on the play area and day, so check the schedule before you go. This Groupon can also be applied toward birthday parties. Parents live vicariously through their kids because they’re secretly jealous of their ability to drink from totally awesome juice boxes without getting the stink-eye from the boss during company meetings. At Run, Jump,-n-Play, kids can do that and much more while interacting with others and benefiting from healthy exercise amid thousands of square feet of fun. While boinging in bounce houses ($7 on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday for kids older than two; $8 on Thursdays), swinging through playsets ($5), plinking phosphorescent balls ($4.95 for kids 3–7, $6.95 for 8+), and hurling larger phosphorescent orbs at neon-colored pins ($15 for a half-hour, $26 for one hour; up to five children per lane), kids also learn valuable independent skills that will help them develop socially en route to productive careers as princesses, astronauts, and ponies.
