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.

Our center is closed on Oct 15, 2016. We will resume Saturday hours on Nov 5.
