Children First Montessori is a pre-school dedicated to nurturing children as they learn and grow. The School encourages the natural love of learning by providing enriched curriculum and confidence building measures through presentations.
Unlike the competitive environment of a testosterone-stuffed gym or mixed-martial hopscotch tournament, boot camp encourages all ages, skill levels, and abilities to motivate each other in a comfortable group setting. The certified trainers at Doylestown and Great Valley constantly challenge participants to achieve higher levels of fitness. Classes take you through different workout routines each day, with a variable variety of body-blasting, calorie-pulverizing exercises, including jogging, strength training, core conditioning, yoga, Pilates, and obstacle courses. You'll shed inches, pounds, and existential funk. Classes run five days a week starting at 5:30 a.m. at the Doylestown and Montgomeryville locations, with Doylestown also offering 9 a.m. sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. From November to March, winter sessions take place in Lahaska at Buckingham Friends School. Great Valley Boot Camp offers a similar booty-busting program with both co-ed and women's-only classes offered most mornings.
The smiling faces of a boy and girl adorn the sign outside of Baby Genius Day Care Center. It's a fitting image for the business, which offers kids a safe, fun, and educational environment with ample supervision and just the right amount of gravity. The childcare experts welcome kids aged 6 weeks to 12 years. In addition to daycare, Baby Genius also hosts after-school programs and a dance studio.
Babies are grownups in training, meaning they need help eating without slobbering, speaking without babbling, and moving around without getting hurt. Romparoo helps out with the latter, with an indoor play space for kids aged 6 months to 3 years. The entire room, from floor to about child height, is padded, so kids can practice crawling, creeping, and toddling without bruising themselves or getting a ticket for jaywalking. Mommy-and-Me classes use music to transition between activities that help develop motor skills as well as socialization, and parents of toddlers aged 18 months to 3 years drop their brood off for two-hour classes that give them the independence to transition to preschool.
It's not surprising that tots become so attached to this modern learn-and-play facility. Here, the dynamic schedule of activities often includes everything from tumbling and ballet to cooking and hands-on science demonstrations. Kids can romp through the jungle gyms, slides, and bouncy surfaces of the center's 1,500 square-foot indoor playground.
Perhaps the most exceptional thing about Citibabes, however, is that it isn't just for kids—while their children are in class (or a supervised childminding session), grown-ups can take advantage of adults-only programs such as parenting seminars and training sessions at the on-site fitness center. In the gym, mommies and daddies get their heart rates pumping on modern cardiovascular machines, reserve personal training sessions, or bench-press strollers filled with dumbbells.
The SoHo club offers a full array of classes, preschool, a tumbling playroom, fitness classes and studio, adult gym, birthday parties, childcare, ongoing family events, workshops, seminars, Junior’s Fresh family friendly café, a juice bar, and more.
Camp Iliff entertains and educates children with a broad array of childcare services and play facilities. Certified teachers help budding toddlers’ minds blossom and convenient afterschool programs provide children up to age 13 with bus transportation from many local schools. Kids celebrate birthday parties playing ticket redemption games or frolic on the forest playground, replete with a mirror maze, tunnel tubes, and slides.
