Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Little Knights facility and grounds continue with the legacy that we have been building at Camelot Kids since 2008. Little Knights opened its doors in September 2016 expanding on our Dragon Parent + Me program that had been running successfully at Camelot Kids for the past 9 years. We have expanded it to include parent workout classes each morning that allow parents to get fit and feel good while their little one is taken care of by our two licensed teachers. Fitness classes include Bootybarre Baby, Airfit Baby, Boxing Baby, Bootcamp Baby, Zumba Baby, Yoga Baby and Dancing for Birth.
We have also introduced our Little Knights 101 classes, which offer a variety of different classes each month. Everything from Baby Sign, Story Adventures, Little Chefs, Zoo-phonics, Art-astic, Boogie Knights, Baila Baila, Messy Madness and more. We also host monthly Disco Knights events and every Friday Parents Day Out, Infant/toddler massage and Little Caterpillar classes.
As an extension of Camelot Kids, Little Knight’s endeavors to create a space for families to gather in community.
