Andrea Vrhovnik is the Playroom Director at Elite-Brookfield. We sat down with her to discuss the different activities that are offered for your Elite Kids.
What sets the Elite Playroom apart from other playrooms? Elite offers activities while your child is in the playroom. These activities are included in your family membership. When parents are working out, our playroom staff goes above and beyond, by taking the children out of the room and allowing them to experience the clubs themselves.
Playroom Activity Offerings
Our playroom directors create a monthly calendar to show what days and times the kids will be engaging in an activity. This allows parents to be able to plan their workouts around an activity their child would enjoy in the playroom. Some of the activities that they do with the kids are:
- Tiny Tot Tennis
- Karate (if available at your club)
- Story Time
- Music Time
- Craft Time
Each of the activities above is about 30 minuets long and they take the kids 3 years old and above out of playroom to do some of these activities. But story time and music time happen in the playroom so all the kids get to enjoy. Craft time also occurs in the playroom so younger children who are interested can also participate.
4 Reasons Why it’s Important for your Child to Stay Active
Andrea told us her top reasons why kids need to stay active on a daily basis. She based these things on experiences she has had with her own children and what she has seen as the playroom director for many years now.
- It’s a healthy way to release any negative energy
- To teach kids that being active isn’t a chore and that they can have fun while doing it.
- To get your child away from technology
- Simply to stay healthy
