Fit Kids Mobile Studio LLC

About Us

The Vision

 

The idea for Fit Kids Mobile Studio LLC began when my children were in daycare.  I would come home from work, get dinner on the table, then rush my preschoolers out the door for their extracurricular activities.  I wanted to give them the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, but we were missing quality family time together on weeknights and I was feeling guilty for over-scheduling them.  This scenario sparked the concept of Fit Kids Mobile Studio LLC.


The vision became a reality in 2014!  Fit Kids Mobile Studio LLC is dedicated to providing exceptional instruction, with the convenient location of your child's daycare center, during the school day.  Your child has the opportunity to experience a variety of programs, freeing up your evenings for family time.  Our weekly communications will provide peace-of-mind so you know what your child is learning and pictures are shared periodically so you can see your children in action.
