At Jeronimo! we provide kids a safe place to run and play, exercise, and
socialize. The atmosphere is vibrant and fun. You need a big heart full of love
for children, yet relate well to adults. Parents love Jeronimo! because it’s
safe, clean, affordable, and the staff is friendly. Kids love Jeronimo! because
they have fun.
How We Got Our Name
During WWII, so the legend goes, a couple of greenhorn airborne paratrooper
soldiers were trying to bolster their courage before their first jump.
One said to the other, “You're scared about the first jump tomorrow, I'll bet.”
“Nope, not a bit,” paratrooper replied. Having recently seen a movie about the
exploits of Geronimo, he said, “I'll yell, ‘Geronimo!' when I jump out the
door.” Next day, true to his word, the trooper yelled, “Geronimo!” for all his
fellow soldiers to hear, and the word became part of the American lexicon.
That's the story of yelling “Geronimo.”
So it's in this spirit of fun and play that this Jeronimo! came to be.
The Kids: Children should get an hour of exercise every day. It's a
habit that stays with them a lifetime. Play at Jeronimo! is fun and lays the
foundation of activity as sliding, bouncing, climbing and maneuvering through
the inflatables improve children's balance, motor skills and coordination.
The Parents: We provide a quiet parent's lounge where they can relax with
a cup of coffee, tea, and nibble on pastries or muffins, while surfing the Net
(using our computers or WIFI), or catch up on a favorite magazine from our
library. As they watch the children play from comfortable chairs, parents can
relax to classical or jazz music.
