We have a 13 year old who just completed the "Stroke Development Clinic" at The Edge in South Burlington. This 6 week class is offered multiple times a year at both the Williston and South Burlington location. It is great if your child is not quite ready for swim team, but past group or individual swim lessons and ready to really work on his or her strokes.
The clinic meets twice a week and they swim for 45 minutes straight...more

Updated review: I used to be a raving fan but am now extremely disappointed in the PlaySpace at the Edge. Pricing has increased dramatically and now the monthly cost is nearly 3x what my membership fees are. Like the gym itself, the PlaySpace is dirty and overcrowded. The final straw was when we arrived one morning and the room smelled awful. I noticed a dirty diaper on the counter right by the sign in sheet clearly causing the odor. The...more

My daughter has been at the EDGE Kids & Fitness for 2 years now. It's hard to leave your child in anyone else's care, but the EDGE is so warm and welcoming. My daughter, a shy 2 year old, LOVES going to "school." The staff is so amazing; many of them are now our go-to babysitters! My daughter not only gets great early education, she also learns to play tennis, swim, speak French, and play music. Truly an incredible program. I couldn't...more

With my first experience at the edge the staff looked upon me with disaproval, that was the start. I warn families that work hard for their money to stay away from this place! And it starts in the gym upon first glance. Then we got involved in the preschool... right out of the gate I caught one of the teachers in a bold faced lie!! While looking me in the eye at parent teacher conference!!! The administration identified that I caught the...more

FYI for all of your parents out there. I received my 'letter of acceptance' for my son to go to the Edge Kid & Fitness for the Essex Location in MAY 2012 (it's now August) for three days a week in their after school program. I fill out the paperwork that they gave me along with the acceptance letter and paid the $250 deposit. I get MORE paperwork with the wrong info. on it saying that my son is going full days??? I call, I'm told to just...more

Want to echo the comments re: the Director and the quality of child care at the Edge. The Director in Essex couldn't be more aloof or disengaged. She loves to prance around and stare at people but her communication skills are poor and she is very unresponsive. Her second in command is also lacking in organizational skills. She happens to also oversee the after school program, which is a joke.
That being said, the actual...more

All three of my boys started taking tennis lessons at the Eastwood location this past year and I cannot speak highly enough of the instructors. Jake, Joyce, and JJ are so terrific with the kids and make learning tennis fun. They don't overload them with instruction in this early stage of learning as their goal is to get the kids to enjoy the game first and polish up their skills next. If I could change anything about the Junior Development...more

Would love to review the preschool program, however, after 3 phone messages over 1 month and 2 drop in visits, the director will not call me. If you try talking to the staff, they tell you all tours and registrations have to go through the "director". Who would want to leave children there if they can't even get it together to make a phone call. Unprofessional director who can't be bothered to reach out to potential students

I love the Edge- great classes and the playspace for my little one to play while I work out. The caregivers in the playspaces (we go to Williston and Kennedy Drive location) are all great. Especially Ryan! We love him! I feel 100% comfortable leaving Jack in their care while I get a few miles in on the treadmill or take a Bodypump class. The only bummer is the hours. I wish the hours were a little more extended- often times a class will...more

The Edge in Essex is a great preschool program. I love all the different "specials" that they do on a daily basis. Depending on childrens age, they do swimming, tennis, wall climbing, foreign language and music/dance. They also do a lot of cooking, as they have their a large kitchen that is shared between all the classes. The space is large, and they have 2 playgrounds. The atmosphere is very friendly and the teachers are great, and can...more
