George's Gym Programs Are Equitable & Accessible to EVERYONE
The focus of George's Gym has always been to bring quality programming to ALL children, so for a many years we have been teaching classes for State Funded Daycare's all over the South and West sides of Chicago. We started teaching in these areas after we were contacted by our first South Shore Daycare, who shared that many businesses like ours will not travel to their neighborhoods. This greatly limits the number of enrichment programs their children have access to in already extremely under-resourced areas. We also learned that many of the Owners of our Daycare's pay for any extra classes out of pocket, as asking the State to pay more for extra programming is not an option.
So in 2017 we decided it was time to make these areas a a priority and make it easier for them to have the same advantages as the children in all the other communities we serve. We felt the best way to do that would be to create two different sets of pricing, with one being specifically for State Funded Daycare's and Non-Profit Organizations at a discounted rate and the other being for all other communities at an adjusted higher rate to allow for the discount on the other side.
By remaining fully transparent in our mission with all of our clients, this new approach worked quite well and we've even lowered the discounted pricing two more times since then! The latest being very recently to help aid in recovering from the effects of the pandemic.
We strongly believe that ALL children deserve equal opportunities and in this small way, we are trying to do our part. You can know, that when you book a class with George's Gym you are helping to provide the same class for another child that might not otherwise have the opportunity.
