A Nigerian proverb says “hold your friends with both hands.” No where is this more evident than in the play shared by young children, where hugs are shared as freely as giggles. In a time of too many screens and on-line interactions, Gymboree continues to provide families with an opportunity to unplug and connect through play. Children play and learn alongside others, while parents enter a circle of support all their own. At Gymboree, peek-a-boo is transformed into a child’s first friend request, and when we go under the parachute as strangers, we’ll surely come out as bubble-covered friends.
We know how important these connections are toward fostering development and happy families. Though modern life continues to moves us along at a dizzying pace, the friendship found through play has never been more precious or important for children.
