WiggleKids® is now mobile.
Our students, with Special Needs, Diverse Abilities, Exceptionalities - whatever word you like to use - are going to be able to find us out and about, offering classes in different locations but with the same great energy. Inclusive!
WiggleKids® programming, according to their parents, has "made their [child's] world a bigger place " by giving them space to exercise, socialize and grow into an active part of their community... and remain true to who they are.
On March 31, 2019 , our physical location closed its doors for good because the mall we were located in decided the economics for their location were not working and shut down the operation after 40+ years in operation.
With the Swansea Mall announcing that is will close - our programming is going to make some major changes. We are going to go mobile. Schools, churches, libraries, parks/recreation departments, Housing Authorities, etc are booking us to travel to them to offer our great classes/events such as Drums Alive®, Creative Relaxation®, Zumbini® and more!
WiggleKids® has been serving thousands of children, teens and young adults for 7 years with diverse abilities. We not only support the youth, but the families have found solace in a community of support and love for & from each other. Our last classes ran on February 28, 2019 and we used the month of March to clean & pack up.
This is where we need YOU.
WiggleKids needs to touch more lives than just those in our neighborhood. It is true that we travel sometimes as much as 2 hours to deliver a program, but we have turned down programs because they are more than 2 hours away. We
don't want anyone to miss out on the inclusive opportunity we can provide.
WiggleKids® programming should be enjoyed by soooo many more students than we can reach. And it can be duplicated. President and Founder, Kim Ferrara, has consulted and trained a handful of individuals around the country on how to
teach inclusively like she does at WiggleKids®. They are serving many and the response has been amazing.
WE NEED TO SHOW THE WORLD THE WIGGLEKIDS® WAY OF STAYING ACTIVE, HEALTHY AND HAPPY.
Bottom line? We were able to get a few organizations to help with the business side of supporting the licensed
programs we offer locally, for example, Drums Alive®, Creative Relaxation® and Zumbini® to keep our community happy and with us as long as we can.
But how does that help everyone else? We need to find compassionate people willing to do what we do. The recipe is
methods are defined, the delivery methods are in place.. but the professional touches of legal, marketing, training, etc
will need to be applied to it all so it is accessible to all who wish to do this work.
Please consider donating to our cause. Please share this with your community. You will be helping a population of
individuals that have finally found their place in the world. For 7 years, WiggleKids® has become known to be THE
inclusive fitness program in New England for individuals of all ages, all abilities - Let's make it the best in the US!
