For the staff at Adventure Kids Playcare, the two most important aspects of their job are to keep kids smiling and safe. They fulfill the former by leading kiddies in group activities such as arts and crafts, exploring the center's playscape areas, story time, and karaoke. As for the latter, each staff member is CPR- and first-aid-certified and keeps a close eye on kids, both physically and via a video security system.

When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beck.
Learning to build a robot. Learning a Bollywood dance routine. Learning to navigate the SAT. These seemingly unrelated topics are all covered during SMARTS Clubs' afterschool enrichment classes in an effort to help kids master not just an isolated subject matter, but the learning process itself. Unlike traditional tutoring, which focuses on specific assignments, the enrichment classes attack the root cause of academic challenges by building critical thinking, creativity, and key cognitive skills. This focus reflects the philosophy of the club's founder, Dr. Meenakshi Singh, an education expert whose experience runs the gamut from assistant college professor to substitute teacher. And her interdisciplinary background is reflected in her institute's classes and the principles that guide the classes.
The methodology imparted at the clubs is based on five core concepts; training rather than tutoring, development of cognitive skills, focus on strategical problem-solving, and whole-brain learning which encourages kids to think outside of the box. Those elements are applied alongside mindful yoga that enables kids to learn how to unwind after a long day of working their brains. The subject matter ranges from directly school-related reading and math and science concepts to yoga, which develops focus and the most essential college skill, curling up small enough to fit in your dorm-room bed.
Children have it so good at Kids ‘R’ Kids, they may not want to leave. Open to youngsters from six weeks to 12 years of age, the center strives to help its students develop wholly—cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. Kids ‘R’ Kids accomplishes just that with its various programs, each led by caring, highly qualified teachers instead of cold, emotionless holograms of Mr. Kotter. To the kids themselves, though, their instructors' accolades are often secondary. Tykes are typically too busy exploring the center’s outdoor playgrounds, developing new skills at interactive learning stations, and enjoying healthy, homemade meals cooked up in the cafeteria by an on-site chef.
