Specially designed centers are fun for kids while facilitating learning through research-based curriculum
Even though most large cities in the U.S. offer kids’ education and entertainment, only those with a Romp n’ Roll center have a truly unique experience for children and their grownups. We are not a traditional facility offering only one type of activity — such as art, music or gym — and we’re not a preschool or day care.
Romp n’ Roll is something special in the children’s education and entertainment industry. Two aspects of our identity make us stand out in a crowded sea of gyms, art studios and inflatable jump houses. Our specially designed centers facilitate learning and fun, and our research-based curriculum is unmatched among our competitors.
“Because Romp n’ Roll is focused on a specific demographic, we’re able to build facilities that are unmistakably designed for our target market,” says Babz Barnett, co-founder of Romp n’ Roll. “The design and function of our space is carefully configured to be conducive to fun and learning for the preschool child, while our curriculum is carefully researched and created around weekly themes that educate the whole child. You just won’t find anything else out there like Romp n’ Roll.”
Step inside a Romp n’ Roll, and you’ll instantly understand why kids and grownups love to come to our centers. We use bright colors and whimsical wall art to convey energy and excitement. Our mascot, Rompy, has his own house where children gather before their gym and music classes to hear a story or sing a song about the week’s theme. The gym is the focal point of each center, filled with multi-colored soft mats, balance beams, slides, swings and a variety of other climbing structures. Our equipment is configured different each week to relate to the theme and as it supports the physical coordination or gross motor skills we’re working to develop that week. A separate room with child-size tables, chairs and tools holds our art classes and birthday parties and parents’ morning out.

Our goal is to educate the whole child. Romp n’ Roll facilities are the ideal environment for our research-based curriculum to flourish as we nurture the children who walk through our doors.
When we say that we provide the best learning experience possible, that’s not just talk. Our activities are based in research and carefully designed to make sure that kids are learning essential skills and knowledge while also having tons of fun.
“We serve children 3 months through 5 years old, and that age span is just vast when you’re talking about development,” Vice President of Operations Jenneane Snyder explains. “The most important things that will happen in a child’s life happen in those first five years. We have a big responsibility to make sure we are presenting our classes in ways that are appropriate for every age we serve so we put a lot of research into our curriculum development. This is where art meets science — the children are playing and having fun but they are also learning. Our job is to make sure the fun and the learning — the art and the science — work hand in hand.”
Our curriculum is so creative, varied and comprehensive that your clients’ children could participate in Romp n’ Roll from infancy to kindergarten-age without ever repeating a class! According to Jenneane, “If your child skipped around, went to all different classes, at all the different age ranges and different themes, you could very well start at three months and leave when you turn six and never have taken the same class twice.”
Romp n’ Roll is unlike any other kids’ education or entertainment franchise. It’s likely there’s latent demand in your community for the type of unique entertainment and education experience we offer. If you’re excited by our commitment to nurture the whole child through specially designed centers that are fun and facilitate learning through research-based curriculum, then we want to talk to you.
