Gigi Gonzalez — Owner
Why did you decide to open Romp n’ Roll?
After a career in the corporate world, I wanted to be part of something bigger. What is bigger than being part of a child’s development and having fun at the same time? It can not get any better! I consulted with my best friend who was a teacher and children advocate for many years and she loved the concept and had dreamed of opening something just like this. She has since passed on and through her inspiration I want to fulfill both of our dreams.
What most excites you about owning Romp n’ Roll?
What most excites me most about Romp n’ Roll is how we focus on the child’s whole development by incorporating the arts while having fun.
How does owning Romp n’ Roll contribute to your community?
My Romp n’ Roll will contribute to my community by providing a concept that does not exist. Children will experience gym, art, and music classes, all while building social skills, learning, and having fun!
Tell us what you love most about Romp n’ Roll’s classes, activities, birthday parties, and special events:
It was love at first sight with Romp n’ Roll. The laughter of the children having fun, the smiles on their faces when they realize they have learned something new and the gleam in their eyes after overcoming a challenge are just a few of the things I love.
