We’ve Expanded . . . Check out Kidz Central UK!

Screen Shot 2016-03-10 at 10.22.37 AM
We are SUPER excited to announce that Kidz
Central Station has expanded—internationally! Yesterday we announced our launch of Kidz Central UK, a new website for finding and enrolling in kids’ activities in Hertfordshire, a suburban area outside of the city of London. Kidz Central UK features the same easy-to-use interface and search engine that has already helped thousands of parents find and enroll in kids’ programs here in NYC and has helped local kids’ programs to expand their reach to new parents. Using this new site, Hertfordshire parents can search for local kids’ activities by the criteria most important to them, such as age, location, class type, price, and more; sign up for trial classes; and directly enroll in a wide variety of programs in music, dance, art, cooking, and more.

Here’s what Kidz Central Station founder Lauren Pohl had to say:

“We are very excited about our expansion to the UK. Our experience in the New York City market proved that there is a need for one centralized location for finding and enrolling in local kids’ programs. Expanding to other markets was the natural next step, and we are excited about the great feedback we’ve already received in the UK market. The Hertfordshire area has so many amazing kids’ programs available, but until now there hasn’t been an easy way for local parents to find them. There is truly a need for this technology, and I have the utmost confidence in the energetic and extremely capable team leading this new venture.”

At the helm of Kidz Central UK is Julie Morrow, CEO, and Daisy Hodgson, director of marketing and strategy, both moms who live in Hertfordshire and have a strong familiarity with the area’s kids’ programs. Before joining Kidz Central UK, Morrow spent many years as an electronics engineer in the audio broadcasting, test automation, imaging and defense industries, and Hodgson was an auctioneer and valuer for over ten years.

Here’s what Julie Morrow, head of our new London team, had to say:

“After seeing the success of Kidz Central Station in New York City, we knew this kind of website was needed in our area. We have already garnered positive feedback from local parents and kids’ programs and look forward to what the future has in store for us.”

There are already over 1,500 classes populating the site and parents can choose from unique kids’ programs such as Tilly’s Dance Factory for dance and Wildchild Activities, which offers classes in archery, skateboarding, and outdoor bushcraft. Like Kidz Central Station, Kidz Central UK allows parents to sign up for semester, drop-in, and trial classes, purchase gift cards; read reviews; and earn reward points with each purchase through the Kidz Rewards program. Kidz Central Station’s popular birthday party finder tool can also be found on the UK site in the form of Hertfordshire’s Best Kids’ Birthday Party Finder, offering area parents a quick and easy way to find and request more information about kids’ birthday party programs and entertainers.

If you’re ever visiting the Hertfordshire area, or if you have friends who live there, spread the word!

Parents: Give Yourself a Break . . . With a February Break Camp!

In just under two weeks it’s Presidents’ Day, which for many parents means a day off from work and for many kids a day off from school and other activities. Sure, an extra family day is fantastic—the perfect excuse for a trip to a museum or movie, or an extra day to hang out and get organized. But for many kids, Presidents’ Day means Presidents’ Week—and a whole five days off from school. If this sounds familiar, you’re probably looking for a way to keep your kids busy and entertained while you get a much-needed break or head to work as usual.

That’s where February camps and activities come in! Many NYC kids’ programs save the day by offering kids a way to not only stay busy during vacation week, but also to learn and have fun too! If your kids are on vacation February 15–19, here are some awesome programs on Kidz Central Station to check out.

Theater CampGall camp. Can you think of anything more fun for your little one than pretending to be part of his or her favorite fairy tale? At Galli Theater’s week long Holiday Theater Camp in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood, kids kids age 4–9 years old can do just that. They’ll select a special role in a chosen fairy tale, rehearse and rehearse some more, and don dreamy costumes in order to look and feel the part. Then, at the end of the session, they’ll perform in a special show for all of their family and friends! During this fun program, kids won’t miss school a bit.

Coding and Robotics Camp If your child can’t get enough of science and coding, Bricks 4 Kidz’s February Break camp is a definite MUST. Using a special robot named DASH and LEGO bricks for building, this camp for kids in grades K–5 is not just educational, but fun too! The camp runs Monday through Friday from 9am–4pm in Bricks 4 Kidz’s brand new Chelsea space, and extended day is available for just $15. Plus, if you sign up now, you’ll save $250 with the program’s early bird rate!

A Snowy Summer Vacation!standard_Private_Picassos_Art_I At Green Ivy Enrichment, February Break is the opportunity to pretend it’s summer, even though it’s wintery and cold outside! Kids partake in a variety of fun activities throughout the week, such as music, art, improv, and science, and they can be as young as 2.5 years old to attend! Not only is the camp a great way to keep kids busy, but it’s also super flexible to fit your schedule. Choose from a half-or full day of camp or sign up for one day or five—either way, your child will have a blast!

Drop-Off Chocolate Workshops. If you aren’t necessarily looking for a full week of activities and just a day or two will do, Chocolate Works Upper East Side’s drop-off chocolate parties will definitely do the trick. On Monday, February 15, kids (age four and up) will decorate a chocolate mold of choice and a chocolate flag for Presidents’ Day, plus they’ll enjoy a scrumptious pizza lunch. Then, on Tuesday, February 16, the activity of the day will be decorating delicious chocolate pizzas followed by gobbling up a slice at a real cheese pizza party. Both workshops are two hours long, which gives mom and dad just enough time to enjoy their own Presidents’ Week activities.

standard_Klimt_Group_Paintings_SummerDrop-In Art Classes. During February Break, Claire’s Creative Adventures is offering something pretty special for kids! While you normally have to sign up for a semester of the program’s art classes, during February Break, kids can drop-in on select Art Adventures sessions at a special rate of $45! There are art/French classes for kids age 3.5–7 and a studio drop-in for the older set (age 8–13), all of which introduce kids to modern artists and allow them to use their imaginations to create fun projects using a variety of cool materials. What’s great: if your child likes the class, you can still sign up for the semester at a prorated price!

Soccer Kids NYClittle boy with soccer ball isolated in white. When you think of kids’ soccer classes, you often think of little ones running around sprawling fields in the park with the sun shining brightly overheard. Not this time of year!

From swimming and tennis to parkour and zumba, if your child has an interest you can find it here. While Upper East Siders will find the 92nd and Lex location most convenient, with this many options the program is definitely worth traveling for. There are tons of classes starting this week and many more beginning in February, so search and enroll now so your child won’t miss a beat.

While we all love the holidays—the lights, the parties, the all-around happiness in the air—when school vacation comes panic often sets in. . . .

“I’m not going away, so what on earth do I do with my kids for two weeks with no school to keep them busy?!?!”

We all love our kids and spending quality time together, but many parents work over school holiday break and don’t get time off, and others simply need time to themselves in order to maintain sanity. Luckily there’s a solution . . . winter break camps!

5 NYC Gems for Open Play

standard_IMG_2947WWNow that it’s getting colder outside, finding an indoor spot for open play is a must—especially when your kids (and you) have been climbing the walls from being home all day. If you don’t have a go-to spot, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite NYC spots for open play—places that offer dedicated time for kids to run around, explore, and play the day away!

TLB Music
TLB’s playroom is every kid’s dream: an indoor play space with slides, a play kitchen and market, soft blocks, a rock climbing mountain, ride-on cars, a reading nook, puzzles . . . the list goes on. Open seven days a week, parents can visit this Upper East Side favorite at their convenience, and purchase single visits or five-packs in advance.

Add These 6 Fall Drop-In Activities to Your List

While it’s great to enroll your kids in a handful of semester activities, it’s also nice to have a free day (or two) for play dates, relaxing at home, and drop-in activities. Our lives are so scheduled these days, it’s nice to not always have to plan so far ahead!

If you’re looking for an activity or two that doesn’t require scheduling months in advance, here are a few of our picks for drop-in classes—from unique activities that are new to the site this season to favorites we’ve had on Kidz Central Station for some time now.
