Ready, Set, Kids! is a shared space; a comprehensive enrichment, learning, and fitness center working to nurture the minds and bodies of our community's children and families. It is a collaboration among these fantastic organizations:


Yak Academy offers weekly Classes, Camps and Preschool that capitalize on a child's window of opportunity for language, which research has shown to be from birth to about age 10. Using play-based immersion techniques, we create a fun environment where children naturally absorb language through song, movement, and activities.
