Gym Activities and Imagination Blocks

Our large motor space is great for cold and rainy days.  The children build body awareness, strength, and coordination through running, jumping, and climbing in our gym. Here the children become familiar with directionality and position in the context of the space around them. They engage in teacher-led activities as well as free play, and they have the chance to work on hand-eye coordination by playing throw-and-catch games.  The children enjoy a balance beam that strengthens their sense of balance. 

Marblehead Children’s Center is pleased to be one of the first childcare centers in the New England area to use Imagination Playground Blocks.  This innovative mobile play system transforms children’s minds, bodies, and spirits through active, creative play. Imagination Playground Blocks continue to be praised by educators and parents alike.
