We strive to help your child achieve greatness by giving them opportunities to grow, learn and pursue more. Through intentional mentorship and structured programming, your child is given opportunities to develop time management, life skills, and academic skills. We believe in educating and nurturing the whole child - mind, body and spirit - and that when we do, they exceed expectations in and out of the classroom.
At the Kroc, we value your child's education. Regardless of where your child is academically, they are welcome at the Kroc. We are committed to success for each child, every day. No exceptions.
This Fall, we introduce our new Explorers' curriculum that will bring academic nurturing to our acclaimed sports and arts offerings. Join us in our learning adventures, where we prepare little ones for kindergarten through imagination and sensory exploration!
YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN:
• Basic skills and academics necessary to ensure Kindergarten readiness
• Pre-reading skills, including letter identification and sound recognition
• How to listen and comprehend children’s literature
• Sensory play and art exploration

Dance at the Kroc
The Kroc Center is a perfect place to start your young dancer. We’ve partnered with Evolve Dance and Fitness to fulfill our mission of offering professional, affordable dance instruction in our community. The instructors will teach technique, flexibility, and strength, with an additional focus on fun! At the end of every 8-week session, students are given the opportunity to perform our Performing Arts Showcase, put on in our professional-grade theater. This gives our students performance practice without the stress of a formal recital or competition. Admission to the Showcase each session is complimentary, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. We invite you to come and enjoy the show!
Music at the Kroc
We believe music is for everyone, and that each person should have access to quality music instruction. We hire a diverse base of knowledgeable and well-qualified music instructors to meet children where they are at in regards to their music education (bios of our instructors are coming soon). In addition to learning about music theory and technique for a variety of instruments, students learn about time management, discipline, teamwork and goal-setting. These life skills, in addition to what they learn regarding music, can be taken with them throughout the rest of their lives. We look forward to helping your child cultivate their passion for music!
