Hi, my name is Taylor and I have been working with children for four years. I have acquired my CDA (Child Development Associate Credential), which is the most widely recognized credential in early childhood education in the U.S., along with many other certifications in the childcare field as well as CPR. At the age of seven I began playing travel softball which eventually turned into playing throughout high school. I love fitness and can’t wait to help your kids get fit while having a blast.

Kayla Daddona
Trained Specialized Instructor

Hi, my name is Kayla and I love to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. Throughout my childhood I was a dancer and I think that if children begin to work out early in their lives they will continue that and hopefully make it a habit in their adult life like it happened to myself. I am CPR certified and ready for anything. I also love spending time with my five little nieces that are always full of energy. I cannot wait to meet you and your child.

I have taken multiple classes in college regarding childhood development, adolescent psychology, nutrition, CPR, and more.
