Gymtime Families & Friends –

Welcome to our new blog – SHARE! We are proud to present an online resource for families to find relevant information and advice from Gymtime’s accomplished instructors and directors. SHARE is a collection of our creative ideas, educational resources and expert advice that will encourage you and your family to DISCOVER, MOVE, CREATE, GET INVOLVED and get OUT & ABOUT. Gymtime is more than a school. We are a one-of-a-kind community where children and families learn and play together in a fully integrated educational environment. At Gymtime we know that playtime for children is not merely a leisurely activity, but an opportunity to develop social skills and cognitive skills, build language, engage in movement and more.  SHARE will be an extension of that environment, equipping parents with useful information and ways to reinforce these skills at home.

The three branches of our community—Gymtime, Early Learning Foundations, and York Avenue Preschool—share a focus on stimulating each child’s spirit of exploration and engaging parents as partners in learning. This collaborative approach is evident throughout the Gymtime community – and what SHARE is all about!
