After enrolling my (at the time) 4 year old daughter, Trent, in various extracurricular activities the last few years, I realized there was a huge need in our area for more programs. The programs that were offered either filled up super fast with long wait lists or didn't necessarily meet the needs of all families. With my background being in education and child development and with experience coaching competition cheer, I felt like the opportunity to open this space on Spotswood Trl. was perfect for what I wanted to do. I began working in a daycare center in 2005 and have worked with kids in some form ever since, including teaching high school, coaching cheer and working as an operations director for a cheer gym and after school program. I wanted to bring all those things together into one facility.
At Inspire we offer a 3-5 yr old preschool program that is focused on play based learning. We also have an after-school program that services Cub Run, Peak View and Montevideo. In the evenings and some mornings, we offer gymnastics and movement classes for kids ages 18 months to 18 years. We have open gym play times and birthday parties as well. In the near future we hope to offer dance classes, children's workshops (dance, art, STEM, woodworking, etc.), adult fitness and parents' night out events.
The community, my family, friends, current employees, and the team I coach have all had a huge part in helping open this facility so quickly. The amount of people that stepped up over the summer to help make this happen was amazing.
