Kidsports provides children with nearly anything they need, whether it's recreation, after-school education, or childcare. The colorful indoor playground is equipped with bright slides and inflatable bounce-houses, and a separate section welcomes toddlers or older children looking to relive the days of their youth. Painting areas let kids exercise their minds as well as their muscles, while a miniature bowling alley and a pirate-themed laser tag arena host friendly competitions. The center is equally adept at mixing fun with learning, hosting preschool and educational programs for children ages 3 to 14.
Within the multihued walls of Kidville’s indoor playland, tykes expand their minds, network with members of their peer group, and deplete their vast energy reserves. Babies, toddlers, and kids 6 or younger delve into classes developed by Kidville’s early-childhood-development gurus. Burgeoning Beethovens can swivel their hips, flex their sing-along muscles, and edit their massive music manuscripts during one of Kidville’s music and dance classes, or enlist in one of the art classes to create a piece that captures their inner rage toward broccoli. Fun and fit gym classes let tots run, roll, and hover through gauntlets of plush blocks and spongy play mats. Clasping hands and scampering legs can also roam freely through Kidville’s sprightly indoor playspace, though all munchkins must be supervised by a parent, guardian, or trustworthy primate.
She might be a tutor, but Heather Quadir is rarely overheard telling a student that they need to study more. To Heather, it's not how much time you spend studying, but simply how you study. She works with each student to figure out their best methods for retaining material, helping them improve in subjects as varied as physics, calculus, and Spanish. She can work with students from kindergarten through college, and not just on course material—she's also a whiz at supplementary skills such as researching, test taking, and time management.
With a springy cork floor and non-toxic paint throughout, Mama & Me encourages tots to explore without fear of accident, injury, or being snatched by dingoes. Ages for each program class differ, ranging like the mighty bison from six months to five years. Parents can participate in parent/child classes, though drop-off classes are also offered. Regardless, your tot will be able to dive into a bevy of activities and amenities, including dress-up clothing, a wooden play castle, pint-sized gym equipment, hand puppets, building blocks, and more. Check the schedule to pick a time that works for you.
