KinderKinetics isn't a daycare (a daycare provides childcare during the entire day while parents work) --- in the summer it is a 4 day/week morning summer camp that they run in two 3 week sessions. The nice thing about it is that they take 3 year olds, and they have a swimming program that you don't have spend $$$ on to join a YMCA or JCC to use. Also, it is on the Pitt campus (Trees Hall) and that is close to Highland Park.

In the Fall and Spring KinderKinetics runs once a week on Saturday morning for 10 weeks. So, if you don't want a 4 day/week camp format, wait for fall.

No problem. Not walking distance but only about 10-15 minutes or so by car. We live in O'Hara and have taken the Gymkana class in Point Breeze. It wasn't for us but others liked it. Basically, it seems as if girls and their parents liked it more than the boys. The girls would all get dressed up in gymnastic outfits and the boys would wear sweat pants.

In the 3-5 age range I found it fine for either gender. My son definitely was into the tumble track, trampoline, zip line, and any of the "blowups" that they put out from time to time. We kind of tailed out with it once the kids started first grade as it didn't fit well with our schedule anymore.

But, as it was pointed out, at age 3 your options are somewhat limited...
