“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” 
― Albert Einstein

2020 Summer Programs


"Why do my kids play with the box more than the toy?"


Even with the best intentions, imagination just can't be conceived, packaged and sold as a "pre-formed" activity. It needs to be encouraged daily for us to find on our own, even in the smallest gesture. Unfortunately, the vehicle to explore though unstructured neighborhood play has become neglected and replaced with over-scheduled lives. Luckily, there is a resurgence of parents seeking to provide their kids the freedom to explore, keeping it simple and just letting them be kids.


That's where we come in.


Over the many years at Barefoot, we've flowed with the generations, growing and evolving. We listen to the kids and change with what they need. The basics will always be the same. Let them play!  Imagination leads to innovation. 

Run, slide, play, get dirty, clean off, repeat.
