What was the inspiration to launch KB GYMNASIUM?
KB Gymnasium, located in Brooklyn, is the brainchild of three fathers — myself and my partners — looking for innovative and educational activities for our kids. Even though we live in a city with one of the largest number of cultural attractions and activities, we found that there were only so many visits one could take to the same museums before our kids lost interest. We wanted something that was educational, dynamic, and fun. As a former teacher, I believe it is important to seek opportunities for kids that complement the content-based education that is taught in most schools. A program that allows for kids to focus solely on the process rather than the result creates more opportunities to foster the underlying skills that lead to high personal and professional achievement.
