Respect- One for all, all for one.
Safety - First, Last and Always!
Love– Love is a foundational component in life and we strive to show our "little learners" love is in everything. We plan to instill and develop loving relationships; a love for learning and a love for fitness in every "little learner".

A Kids Gym Academy's vision is to be a premiere childcare provider of educational and physical programs. Enhancing the lives of our children and families in our community by offering high quality fitness based programs of education and gymnastics. With that thought we will create sharp minds, build strong bodies, and secure lasting memories through a creative curriculum led by nurturing staff; all in a safe, fun, educational and fitness-based environment that raises each ‘little learners’ self-esteem.
We take the well being of your "little learner" very seriously and work hard to provide a learning environment that is as healthy as possible. We strive to keep our learning environments that come into close contact with our ‘little learners’ disinfected with antibacterial soap and water along with an antimicrobial cleaner. Gymnastics mats are disinfected twice daily. Toys are cleaned and disinfected weekly, water-play tables cleaned and disinfected often and carefully supervised when in use. Hand washing is the most effective practice in prevention of spreading germs. ‘Little learners’ continuously wash hands throughout the day.
You are always invited, always welcome and always appreciated. AKG maintains an open door policy regarding Parent Involvement. We ask that parents coordinate all volunteer activities with their child's teacher in advance. This allows the teacher to prepare the students for the visitor, and plan activities for the volunteer to participate in. Visitors are required to check-in at the front desk. Only parents/guardians or authorized contacts listed in the child's file are permitted to volunteer. Parents can improve the programs effectiveness through open communication. We use an app based communication tool as well as information boxes are in each room for parents to receive art and daily information for their "little learner". Also please keep teachers and administration informed of events that may affect your child's behavior or attendance.
