The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan?s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Tucked within Planet Fun's indoor play facility, two stories of colorful, interweaving tubes, tunnels, and slides coax sock-clad youngsters into its labyrinthine space for crawling and climbing exploration. After emerging from the tubed tangle, guests can try their hand at more than 30 redemption games in the arcade, such as air hockey and skee-ball. A plenitude of pizza and snacks nourishes exhausted kids, while a toddler arena engages newborns with age-appropriate versions of the older children's tube and slide attractions. Along with tots and tykes dropping by during open play, Planet Fun accommodates birthday kids with party packages and numerous group events, including lock-ins and field trips.
Yips and Yaps just might be a better place than home, especially when dogs' owners are away. Here, pets can get groomed, play with friends, or even stay overnight while their owners travel. Though staff provides bowls, beds, and blankets for boarding charges, pet owners are welcome to pack their pups' own belongings from home. During daycare sessions in the center's outdoor and indoor play yards, pets acquire crucial socialization skills they can't get at home, no matter how often they try to play tug of war with the houseplants.

At Baxter's K-9 Complex, pups explore and gallivant around a 4,000-square-foot indoor dog park loaded with obstacles courses and playfellows. Hounds visiting for doggie day camp sink teeth into chew toys, rummage through tunnels, and attempt to topple Olympic long-jump records from atop ramps. High-energy and moderate play areas divvy dogs into comfortable levels of playfulness, and rest areas facilitate naps, snacks, and polite debates over a warm brandy.
