Why Focus on Your Gym's Children's Spaces?
Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s a challenge for parents to make it to the gym. There are so many other commitments fighting for their attention: sports, music lessons, after school activities. How do you make sure attending the gym makes it to the top of that list? The answer lies in your child care environment. When you make your gym a place where kids want to be, parents are much more likely to not only attend your gym, but recommend it to a friend. By focusing efforts on your child care space and offering a place for the whole family, you’re boosting your business and removing an obstacle that may be standing in the way of fitness. Ready to rethink your children’s space? Take a look at these three tips on making the most of your child care spaces.
1. Make your space colorful.
Consider theming the space with a colorful design. Kids love color, and when they walk into an environment that was clearly designed for them, they feel a sense of comfort. Let the kids and the parents know that the children are a priority by setting aside space just for them. Themes can be carried out in the hallways, group rooms, and check-in stations. Check out some of our popular themes for inspiration.
2. Create a multi-functional space.
Some children will want to be active while others may need some time to do homework or read. We suggest providing desk space as well as a play area. You may even want a relaxing reading corner. Gaming rooms and TV areas are other great additions to a multi-functional child care space.
3. Add a play space.
Do you really want to stand out from the crowd? Add a playground to your child care area. You don’t have to have a lot of space to include a playground. Solutions for small spaces include portable play elements or even a climbing wall. Adding a playground or play elements to your child care space is a great way to promote physical activity and start a healthy lifestyle. Plus, children will be so excited to return to your gym week after week.
If you’re ready to boost your business, get started by redesigning your children’s space. By offering an environment for the whole family, your business will stand out from the crowd and become the go-to place for families in your community.
