Between bills, errands, keeping the house clean and diffusing the occasional (or constant) squabbles between your kids, remembering to stay optimistic might feel like an impossible feat as a parent.
Summer is just around the corner. Tired of your kids being glued to their iPads, or taking their energy out on your just-cleaned house (or on each other)?
At Mountain Kids, our business is founded on the philosophy of giving back — giving back to our kids and our communities. And a huge building block of that foundation is our relationship with local non-profit organization, There with Care.
If you have a Rainbow Rider at Mountain Kids, you can probably tell from watching your preschooler in action that they’re gaining balance, coordination, agility, strength, patience, speed, social skills and more — all while engaging in imaginative play.
