Kick start your child’s social, educational and fitness development with Groove and Grow!
Let us introduce you to our new program at The Academy, Groove and Grow Creative Learning Academy. We pledge to uphold our philosophy to teach in an inspiring, safe environment, and enrich your child’s self-esteem. Our lesson plans and curriculum are guided by this philosophy. Our classes are progressive, productive, and safety is #1. We know if we don’t keep the classes exciting along with learning, children will tire of it easily. Part of our teaching strategy is to make learning, arts and fitness fun! We know the number one reason kids quit any activity is that it’s just not fun anymore. Through unique teaching techniques we can make your kids want to come back week after week. Your child will receive a well-rounded educational experience to help prepare them for school socially, mentally, and physically.

What are people saying about our program:
"Groove and Grow is a wonderful program! Our daughter was in the middle of a terrible skin condition that effected every aspect of her life. Both Ms. Nikkis’ and the Goldstar staff were so amazing. Not only were they extremely patient but they also went out of their way to make things easier for her. In the midst of such a difficult time our daughter was able to learn and enjoy doing it! This program was very thorough, creative and so much fun!!" - Katie Loeffler
"Groove and Grow has been amazing for our daughter. We started her a semester early in school when we learned of this program. The class size is perfect for her age and the creativity that teachers have is amazing and top notch. As a teacher myself, I know how important it is to find a program that my child will love and thrive in. She looks forward to going everyday and loves that she gets to do dance and tumbling while at school. We are so happy with the program and excited to see what this year brings." - Jennifer Oas
"Thanks to the Groove and Grow program and Gold Star Academy's knowledgeable teachers and staff, our child has flourished. The small classroom setting and individualized attention ensure that she is challenged as she continues to grow her comprehension. We have no doubt she will start kindergarten a step above her peers, and that Groove and Grow deserves that credit!" - Samantha Biskup
