  • KinderCare - Natoma Station, CA
    Like most parents, Cyndi R. doesn't like to take chances with her child's wellbeing. By the time her son was 13 months old, Cyndi had interviewed roughly 20 childcare providers—but she noticed something different when she walked into the local KinderCare. The staff here greeted every child by name and, as she peeked into each of the classrooms, Cyndi noticed engaged instructors leading one-on-one lessons. The center's Assistant Director even took the time to answer all of her questions, both before and after she decided to enroll her son. The thing is, this isn't a unique experience. KinderCare now has more than 1,700 centers, and parents across the country share similar thoughts on their local educators. To hear them tell it, it's the commitment of those teachers that makes all the difference. Twice a year, KinderCare hosts the largest early childhood teacher-training program in the country, and every center pursues national accreditation. All of this translates into the development of social, emotional, physical, and intellectual skills in infants and children up to 12 years old. That may seem like a lot of skills to entrust a daycare with, but KinderCare is more than just a daycare—in fact, it's better to think of it as a learning center. During daycare, kindergarten, and before- and after-school programs, KinderCare's educators lead activities that focus on six different areas, including math and science, language and literacy, and the art of opening a tricky juice box.

  • The Firing Line
    After spending his last shot, a shooter waits for the automatic retrieval system to bring his target back and show his accuracy. Each lane on The Firing Line's 25-yard indoor pistol and rifle range sports an automatic target-placement system, which lets marksmen sharpen their aim across both short- and long-range scenarios. In addition to supervising the range and maintaining house rules, The Firing Line's arms experts also lead classroom training that ranges from youth safety workshops to certification courses for NRA range-safety officers. Memberships grant sportsmen privileges such as gun rentals—The Firing Line plans to add gun rentals for nonmembers in the near future, as well as gunsmithing for clients in need of firearm restoration or something to do with all their inheritance from Uncle Dirty Harry.

  • Young Chefs Academy-Fresno
    "If you make it, you will taste it" is the motto founder Julie Fabing Burleson (http://gr.pn/yCWj1v) envisioned when she created Young Chefs Academy. In addition to giving youngsters hands-on exposure to culinary techniques, kitchen safety, eating etiquette, and table setting, the academy's philosophy ensures that kids like 10-year-old former veggie-hater Camille gain an appreciation for healthy homemade cuisine. With centers in more than 10 states, Young Chefs Academy enriches growing minds with engaging cooking classes, camps, and birthday parties that impart valuable life skills, such as self-reliance and how to trick a younger sibling into doing the dishes.

  • Mathnasium - Fresno
    More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students’ math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.

  • PrepEgg Inc
    The teachers of Prep Egg believe that intensive preparation is students' best bet for succeeding at the SATs. Through programs that meet for six hours a week, they leave students testing at an average of 110.43 points higher than they did when they enrolled. Private tutors can supplement the work of classroom and online courses by pinpointing areas where students have the most room to improve. The tutors have impeccable credentials—the company was started by UC Berkeley students—but they're not afraid to use methods you wouldn't find in a normal high-school classroom. They provide bursts of motivation by stressing short-term goals, and students who ace the challenges assigned might be rewarded with anything from a piece of candy to a $100 gift card.
