Upper Dublin Patch: When did you open your business?
Romp n' Roll: April 2009
UDP: Who is your ideal client or customer?
RNR: Our ideal customers are families with children aged 6 and under.
UDP: What makes your business unique from others in your field?
RNR: Our focus on developmentally appropriate activities is key to the success of our classes. We are also able to offer open gym times daily FREE with enrollment in one of our classes.
UDP: What made you decide to open a business?
RNR: I have always loved to work with children! When we discovered the Romp n' Roll franchise opportunity I realized that this is a place where people could come every day, have fun with their children and watch them grow.
UDP: What's your most popular item?
RNR: Our most popular class is our Tumble Tunes class. Our Tumble Tunes classes are parent inclusive classes. We have Tumble Tunes 1 which is designed for children who are walking/running with ease, usually 10-24 months of age as well as Tumble Tunes 2 for children 2-3 years old and Mixed Ages, 10 months to 3 years. We begin the class in "Rompy's House" where we call out our mascot, Rompy, sing our hello song, and Rompy says special hello to each child. Rhythm is the main musical attribute we focus on. Instruments and songs will not only introduce musical concepts but help gain an understanding of body awareness, movement awareness, and sensory based motor functions like speech and early vowel sounds. We also address bigger, gross motor functions like stepping and marching, all done within the enjoyment of music. After our hello circle time in Rompy's house it is into the gym where the equipment is arranged in a way the children can use each piece individually and develop skills such as balance, jumping, climbing and rolling. Halfway into class we come together for music time where the children participate in a variety of fun creative music and movement activities. Before heading back into Rompy's house, the children enjoy an exciting bubble dance party. Each class concludes in Rompy's House, where we sing songs together and Rompy says a special goodbye to each child. To further expand on your class, each child will also receive their very own CD to enjoy at home.
