2012 Kids' Classes (Suburbs)

The Center on Central

The curricula are vast and eclectic-everything from Spanish tutoring to fashion design to theater arts to wheel pottery to fitness to cartooning to glass bead-making-at this kid-cademy founded by bubbly owner Katie Opher and her husband Ron. The lively instructors also oversee summer camps and “date nights” at which parents can drop off their offspring. There are classes for special-needs kids, too, including art and music therapy and social-skill building.
