Our gym room has weekly changes with a new floor plan that makes new challenges for the children when they come in at the first of the week. We always have something inviting for the children to do on the table near the door as they say goodbye to Mom or Dad and teachers are there to interact with your child in welcome. Exploragym is a very warm and friendly place to be.
Free play is an important part of the day. It is our plan that free play will become a catalysis, a favorite time, when your child will interact in unstructured play with friends. It is an important ingredient to social development.
