Since 1995, Little Feet Childcare’s certified teachers have been fostering new generations of inquisitive children in their daily childcare sessions. Childcare groups are separated by age, with infants and toddlers placed in closely monitored classes that follow the Ohio Department of Education’s official infant and toddler guidelines. Preschoolers aged 3–5, meanwhile, have their own curriculum specifically designed to prepare them for the academic rigors of kindergarten, and an after-school program for kids aged 6–12 provides time for both homework and socializing.
Learning Advantage Education Center and Preschool's licensed, certified teachers impart valuable skills to children in an entertaining, structured atmosphere. Summer dance camps combine age-appropriate movement instruction with foot-tapping music, fun props, and entertaining themes such as Under the Sea, At the Beach, and Standing Near a Sink. Dancers age 5–8 can bounce around at the Shake Your Groove Thing camp ($40, plus a $5 supply fee), and those age 3–4 can groove to music during the three-day Shake, Rattle and Roll camp ($39, plus a $5 supply fee) or the Lets Twist camp ($40, plus a $5 supply fee).
The movement maestros at Sharon Rae Dance School—named the best dance studio in Beacon four years in a row by Ohio.com—teach the fancy footwork of tap, ballet, and jazz to tots and youthful twirlers. In all the studios, including a colorful room designed for preschoolers, a layer of cushioning supports the shiny hardwood floors, warding off injuries as whippersnappers jive in musical-theater lessons and tumble with pompoms. All kids' classes are monitored through closed-circuit television, which keeps parents in the loop as they weld together first-place trophies in the waiting room. Students as young as 2 can build fine and gross motor skills in toddler sessions, and adults can leave their own cubicle-themed play sets to join fun Zumba workouts that combine aerobics and Latin dance moves.
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
