Separation anxiety won't be a problem at Tender Years, since parents staff the classroom right alongside teachers. The cooperative preschool makes transitioning from a full day of play easy on kids by inviting parents to participate in the classroom about twice per month. They act as classroom assistants, spurring on learning not only in their own child, but also kids' classmates (and soon-to-be friends). The learning comes naturally during daily activities such as puzzles, music, art, play, and story time.
When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beck.
