What Parents Have To Say

My child is grounded for bad behavior when I pick her up from after school care at Idea Lab.It is every after school care required parent’s dream for their child to be in a safe environment with homework support after school. Extra support for topics like science, technology, whatever e stands for, arts and math is a great investment in a child. It’s also a privilege to have it available and to be able to provide the opportunity. #steamparentwannabeIf you were ever to ask me if LEAVING these kinds of activities would be an issue for a child of mine, I would not even be able to imagine what you were talking about. Prolly because I’d be distracted by that pretty butterfly with no conscious awareness of evolution, physics, art, or that e thing that all are a part of what that pretty butterfly is and does..Karah has enjoyed all of her extra activities over the years, but she has never felt so passionately about them that they were a currency.I took away Idea Lab last night for her behavior choices when I pick her up and she worked so hard when we got home to earn IDEA Lab back I am letting them have her today.Thanks to Idea Lab, the dog poop may be picked up and the empty juice boxes may actually make it to the trash can.This STEAM thing might actually be working for me!#northshoalcreek

We had a mobile Minecraft Birthday Party at our house for our 7 year old and it was so awesome! The kids were engaged the entire time- with the staff having great management skills while conducting unique, fun activities. All the kids loved it and the parents were impressed too. But the happiest of all (besides my son who was thrilled to get a bit of laptop time with his friends 😄) was me- because the party planning was a breeze and a success. Thank you!

Both of my daughters go to Idea Lab Kids for the culinary arts class and they absolutely love it! They love their teachers and the center in general. They offer a lot of options for after school care and I’m definitely going to be enrolling my girls for more classes here. We’re thinking about summer camps already! Only con is can be a bit loud in the center but what can you expect with a place full of kids. Overall we love idea lab.

My children always love coming to camp. I am impressed by the tough concepts that they explore which always leads to fun conversations on the way home and further experimentation over the weekend. They seem to have knowledgeable and friendly staff and the sticking point for me is that the kids come home having actually learned something!
