We are Becca, Sarah, and Katie, the founders and owners of Balanced Family Academy. We are sisters, mothers, and best friends who understand the challenges of finding balance each day when raising a young family.
For many years, we talked about creating a business where we could make a difference and impact the lives around us. Those conversations led us into opening Balanced Family Academy in 2014. In the early stages of developing the Academy, having a new mother perspective was key in creating the program offerings that best catered to new and growing families. Becoming parents brought an immense amount of joy into our lives, but with that came new challenges that we helped one another overcome day by day. But we didn't stop there -- we were determined to help additional families within our area find more balance in their lives.
With this vision in mind, we were able to create a community of families that all have one goal in mind - providing the best for their family. In doing so, we give parents peace of mind that their child is receiving individualized care with our great teacher to child ratios. Encouraging healthy habits from the start is also very important to us. That’s why we offer a menu that provides a variety of fresh, wholesome options for the kids each day. Providing opportunities for physical activities is another passion of ours and we facilitate that by time in our multi-purpose rooms and partnering with local businesses to bring in a variety of classes each week.
While providing a safe and interactive learning environment is our top priority, we believe in taking care of mom and dad too! Every week, we offer a family style take-home dinner so that you can have a night off from cooking. We also offer fitness opportunities in the evenings for parents and family classes, such as yoga on the weekends. The BFA difference of low staff to child ratios, wholesome food for the entire family, all-in approach with diapers, wipes and extracurriculars was our vision in 2013 and still is today! It's what we believe sets us apart from other options in Columbus.
We are constantly looking for ways to be more innovative and we will always stand by our mission of Every Single Child. Every Single Family. Every Single Teacher. Every Single Day
