So how does Wilmington help kids to have Fun, learn more, and make friends?
In 2004, our founders recognized a shortage of high-quality classes and programs available to their own children and eventually set out to create a contemporary child development program of their own. During their study and research, they discovered the true value of a play-based curriculum and strategically designed their program after these key values.
From our very first day in class to today, play-based learning has remained our focus. Our curriculum continually evolves and changes so that each class and activity meets the developmental needs of each child.
What makes us even more unique?
Unlike our competitors who service children up to 12 years old, we instead cater our curriculum to target the most critical growth stages by offering classes for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers; ages 3 months through 5 years.
Rather than focusing solely on the physical activity aspect, we also incorporate art classes, music classes, movement activities, imagination activities and other subjects into our offerings so we can exercise and engage the mind as well as the body!
Another key focus for us is socialization. Socialization has always been a key target within our curriculum design. As parents and teachers, we understand how important it is for each child to not only socialize with you, their parents, but to also create bonds with other children their own age! Because we are so heavily focused on play-based learning, the "play" often results in tremendous social growth through regular attendance to classes.
At Wilmington, you can expect:
- Enthusiastic, experienced instructors
- Safe and stimulating equipment
- Parent-friendly atmosphere
- Research-supported, play-based curricula
- Convenient and affordable membership options

Our children's gyms strike a perfect balance between having fun and learning because here they are one and the same. Bring your child and participate in one of our themed classes, take advantage of our drop-off events, round up the family and attend a seasonal celebration, or supervise as your little one blows off steam during our Open Gym sessions.
