Engage. Enrich. Empower.

Animated Child is an innovative enrichment center that encourages a child's natural curiosity, independence and creativity. We engage children in every element of intelligence to highlight their unique way of learning. By exploring in what ways a child is smart versus how smart they are, children are empowered to recognize ability within themselves.
