The Learning Zone
A favorite after school center and summer camp for Riyadhis, The Learning Zone offers everything from art and science classes to sweet sports. The great thing about it is that the classes are structured in a way that follows a really diverse set of programs to pique any child’s interest. On the other hand, another great way to be creative is through the Nutty Scientists, wherein kids get to do experiments and build stuff using the magic of science.

Al Manahil Ladies Center
SWIMMING! What is summer without hitting the pool? Al Manahil has been running swimming courses for children since forever and has taught a lot of us how not to drown. From beginner to advanced courses, your little ones will definitely learn how to waddle, paddle and stroke. Also, Al Manahil is one of the few places we know that runs tennis and taekwondo classes for your less aquatic children.
