What Parents Are Saying

My son loved the experience and liked learning about sea creatures. Also he liked the teacher a lot and was talking about her after she left. I am overall happy and satisfied with the experience!

Our Grasshopper teacher came over and kept the kids totally entertained for two full hours. When we went down to get some cute pics of the kids playing with the sand and they told us to go away so you know they were having a good time! Thank you so much Grasshopper Kids!!

- Jordan H., mom of 1

My children had a wonderful time. This was their 3rd Grasshopper experience with the same teacher and they have loved every one of them. She had them engaged the whole time in different crafts including sticker pictures, crafting sea horses, magic sketch drawings, balloon bubbles, and strung beads to make mermaid bracelets. It’s such a good feeling as a mom to come home and hear your kids raving about their experience and so excited to show you all the crafts they made.
