Spirals Edventure Academy is AMAZING! I have my second child there for her 3rd year. My first child started in 2017. The kids learn and grow through hands-on learning, movement (dance, yoga, gymnastics), and through thoughtful and carefully created art, sensory tables, free play opportunities, and developmentally appropriate worksheet activities.
All kids in one class means that the older ones can lead and model school-appropriate actions and learning. And the younger ones can learn from the older ones—- It’s totally a Vygotsky zone of proximal development....
I have been 1000% happy and pleased with my experiences at Spirals Edventure Academy. Ms. Ally has a true gift and calling for her work!!! My middle child graduates in May 2021 and is beyond well-prepared for kindergarten. My third child will start in October 2021, when he turns 3. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this program!

We absolutely love Spirals Edventure Academy! We are in our third year with them; the first two years with my son, and now my daughters attend. My girls grew up watching their brother go to Spirals and were asking to go with him even before they were old enough!
Spirals Edventure Academy provides a wonderful combination of learning through play, sensory play, arts and crafts, free play and gymnastics. They even get outdoor time for nature walks when the weather is good. Children also get the opportunity to learn with worksheets selected for the child's age/ability and will be guided in small groups of 2 or 3 children so that they get support as they need it. They are encouraged to build upon their abilities, but yet are not pushed and can go at a pace they are comfortable with. My son seemed to be a wild child at age 3 but really just had a ton of energy - Spirals was perfect for him because he got to let that energy out with free play in the gym and actual gym, yoga and (at that time) dance classes. Ms. Ally, with her experience of teaching young kids, understood him immediately which I was incredibly grateful for because I had been worried that he would be misunderstood; he was not a bad kid, just had a lot of energy; he also needed structure and routine. Having a teacher who can truly understand each child and their needs is a blessing.
We get updates during the day, there are photos posted to the private Facebook page - which I've found very helpful to prompt my children at pickup to discuss their day - instead of just hearing "I don't know" to the question "what did you do today?" I can give them hints/reminders to get them to talk and discuss. We feel very lucky we found Spirals Edventure Academy and our girls are now thoroughly enjoying their time there and are also doing very well for their age academically. We've also made some good friends over the years; it's nice to share the experience with other families who, like us, have had our older children attending together but also now our younger children attending or will be attending together in the future. Absolutely recommend Spirals Edventure Academy.

My son has been going to Spirals for a little over a year. He attends the Edventure Kids Academy and I couldn't be more pleased with the teachers, the lessons and the happiness I see in my boy when I pick him up. He has a great time learning and you can see the genuine care, time and effort the teachers put into each student. I just wish I could have found this place sooner.

Our family has been with Spirals for over 4 years. We've had two kids through the preschool program. We've done swim lessons, summer and school break camps, gymnastics lessons, tumbling classes, and birthday parties. The staff at spirals treat us like family, and have been a big part of our children's education and recreation. The staff is what really makes Spirals special and sets them apart from similar programs. We recommend the all of their programs to all of our friends and acquaintances with kiddos.

My son Alex had grown so much going to spirals gym. I think more than me, lol. He loves Ms. Ally. I'm so thankful for her. She has taught my son to behave and learn new adventures. He has learned to communicate better and is ready to learn and start kindergarten next year. I love Ms. Ally too. She is by far the best in the business.

Juan David has been going here since April of this year and is in love with it. Ms. Ally and Ms. January are awesome with kids. Full of patience and very fun loving. J. D. Loved the preschool program. He would come home everyday telling us what he learned and full of new vocabulary words. The preschool program got him ready to start pre-k in august. We are VERY happy with the school.
We decided to sign him up for the camp and it was the best decision ever!! He wakes up in the morning excited to see his friends and comes home with stories of everything he's done.

We absolutely love Spirals EKA program! We have 3 boys and each one has gone or is going through the program. We love it so much I work my work schedule and life around our children's schedule at Spirals. Ms. Ally has the best skill set and temperament to work with preschool age children. My kids adore playing and learning with her. She is so creative in her approach and brilliant in choosing and executing the activities she incorporates into her teaching. Coach Aaron and previous coaches have been instrumental in helping my boys with their coordination, balance and overall physical health. My kids also attend the summer camps every summer and love it! I cannot recommend this program enough!!!
