When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beck.
Run Pest Control's technicians keep buildings both safe and free of pests while staying up-to-date on industry advances. The undesirable critters they target range from insects—such as cockroaches, bed bugs, and termites—to food-stealing rodents and roommates. To rid homes of such nuisances, the technicians take a three-step approach. After thoroughly inspecting problem areas, they classify the types of pests present and design custom integrated pest management systems. Then, once the small monsters have been thwarted, they help customers take steps to prevent future infestations, clean up messes, and repair damages caused by barbarian mice.
