Gymstars provides a fun-filled class with exciting skills to learn, brightly colored equipment and choreographed movement routines to motivate and challenge your child, all while offering a tremendous amount of fun! The class starts with lively music and dance designed to stretch and warm up for the favorite part of class—the obstacle course! Walk across the balance beam, roll down the mat, cartwheel over the rainbow. Our young gymnasts are led through an action-packed course of colorful, fun and tactile obstacles, learning a variety of tumbling and sports movement skills as they master the challenges in their path!

Construction Kids

Construction Kids provides hands-on workshops for children Pre-K to 6th grade, in which students learn to use real tools and get to build real things in a safe and creative environment. The program encourages children to study the natural and manmade worlds that surround them, while introducing new builders to a myriad of tools and material that are critical to the broad range of children’s cognitive, physical and social learning needs.
Construction Kids is internationally recognized as a leader in the field of hands-on education as a paradigm for learning.
