Premier Baseball Academy's instructors draw from their experience at the high school, college, and professional levels to help hone skills of players ranging from little leaguers to pros. In private and group lessons, the bat-swinging experts focus on areas such as strength and arm velocity with equipment including pitching mounds and five Iron Mike batting-cage machines that dispatch balls at adjustable speeds. The instructors hold practices for entire teams and lead camps that aim to cover all mental and physical aspects of the national pastime. The Academy also hosts several tournaments throughout the year and serves as a rescue shelter for stray team mascots.
Amid soothing sage-colored walls, patrons buckle in for body transforming in wraps designed to help shed weight and burn fat. Technicians gently fold their clients into toasty wraps that work to help sculpt leaner, smoother silhouettes capable of creating more aerodynamic shadow puppets. The shop’s repertoire of miocrodermabrasion, facial, waxing, and tanning treatments allows clients to ensure no inch goes unbeautified, and a collection of weight loss and anti-aging products for sale helps customers keep up the primping process long after guests leave the spa.
The main goal of our Academy is to nourish each child’s early childhood today with love, knowledge, passion, creativity to build a strong foundation for tomorrow. We use a traditional Montessori approach to guide children ages 6 weeks through 10 years including our after school programs.
Founded in 1977, Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both at school and in standardized testing. The academic evaluation, consisting of exams performed in a simulated classroom environment, yields a comprehensive collection of data that tutors use to design a custom learning program and a personalized, in-class obstacle course.
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.
In Bricks 4 Kidz hands-on programs, kids can learn to build anything from a motorized amusement park to a duck. But the building blocks aren't real bricks—they're LEGO blocks. Each of the company's summer camps, after-school classes, and birthday parties center around building themed LEGO model plans, designed by engineers and architects. By building structures that fit a zoo theme or a Minecraft theme—or by creating Lego scenes for stop-motion animation—kids learn science and math, teamwork, and problem solving skills, while having fun and getting their masters in LEGO architecture along the way.
