“We are meeting a need and we are hearing from parents that they may not go back to normal,” Scott Graby, Developer at Fountains at Gateway, said.
The setup includes personal study cubes, an indoor play space, and a fenced outdoor area for fresh air.
“We have divided in into three different categories with young students starting with kindergarten going up to 8th grade,” Graby said. “It’s our answer to the challenges parents are facing.”
Kids Cove will accept drop ins, for example, when a school closes, or whenever a homeschool parent just needs a break.
“We’ve heard a lot of moms struggling and being frustrated with distance learning,” manager Jacquie Brengartner said. “We take that stress out of the parent’s hands.”
“I think we are going to be that fun learning environment,” manager Kimberly Doughtie said.
