Kids In Motion Separate Areas

Kids In Motion takes your child’s safety seriously. That is why we have three separate areas for the three separate age groups we serve.

In the middle area we have the amazing art station, snack area, puzzle area as well as other fun table activities. The back is for active play with cars, trucks, dinosaurs, a kitchen and more.

Toddler Room

Our toddler room is for children ages 12 months to 23 months. This fun area offers age appropriate toys, push and ride on toys, crawling structure and a slide.

Infant Room

Our infant room is for children ages 6 weeks to 11 months old. We provide saucers, swings, a soft structure, infant toys and books and lots of love for these special little ones. We try to offer a quiet and safe place away from the busy feet of crawler and walkers.

Kids In Motion Programming

Families keep coming to Kids In Motion because of our amazing programming for children of all ages. Our energetic programming  helps to promote good health and fitness while having fun. Our goal is to have your children lead active and healthy lives. We know your children will love the programs and develop new friendships along the way.  See below for a list of programs we provide;


Kids Night Out

Our most popular program is Kids Night Out.  At In Motion Fitness the parent must remain in the facility while their children are in Kids In Motion.  During Kids Night Out, however, parents can leave their children in our care while they spend the next 3 hours going to a movie, having a quiet dinner or just have a relaxing evening at home.  Each Kids Night Out follows a fun theme.  The children will have fun doing crafts, playing games, having dinner and dessert and then ending the special night with a movie.  For more information such as upcoming themes and dates please check out the Kids In Motion Calendar.
