Alpha Kids Shine teaches kids of all abilities how to be their best. Our name originated with the knowledge that all families want their children to be at their brightest and reach their highest potential. Founded by a board-certified pediatric physical therapist, we employ a kid-centered approach. Our collective years of experience within the health and wellness community contributes to our expert knowledge, and our research supported curriculum includes fun classes and movement camps designed to develop children physically, while enhancing cognitive, social, and emotional skills.

What makes us different

child Wellness

Children are not smaller versions of adults, so we don't treat them like one. We love having fun and being silly but always value your child as an individual and maintain their safety as our top priority. Because a child's wellness is more than just physical/motor skills our classes intertwine components of cognitive and social-emotional development. 

Current research

As educators, we continuously seek out updated research on childhood development, physical activity, and learning allowing pediatric developmental research to be the underlying basis of our classes. We are unique in that we incorporating play-based themes. The classes we offer today include elements of play that were published in research as recent as 2018.

Expertise

Our founder has a doctorate from Northwestern University and our team is comprised of instructors with strong backgrounds in wellness, dance/movement, and early childhood development. In partnership with our parent advisory board, we collectively imagine the full potential our children!

Community

We have long-term commitments to our community.  We currently provide full and partial scholarships to families with limited resources. We also offer free classes and events at HelloBaby in Woodlawn and volunteer at and donate to the Chicago Greater Food Depository.

OUR APPROACH

Kids thrive when they are encouraged  to "play, grow, learn.” Alpha Kids Shine blends this lifestyle approach with proven childhood wellness programs to support your parenting and affirm your child's unique strengths and abilities. We aim to integrate our programs with those of your child's educators. The goal of our work is to help all children achieve their fullest potential and truly shine.
