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

2019 Summer Programs


"My kids played with the box more than the toy!"

Even with the best intentions, imagination just can't be conceived, packaged and sold as a "preformed" thing. It needs to be encouraged daily for us to find, even in the smallest gesture. This essential time in development uses imagination to teach us endlessly. Unfortunately, neighborhood play has become a thing of the past. Although we have lost so much, luckily there is a modern resurgence of parents seeking to provide their kids the freedom to explore, keeping it simple and just let them be a kid.

That's where we come in.

Over the many years at Barefoot, we've flowed with the generations, growing and evolving. The basics will always be the same.

Let them play!  Imagination leads to innovation. Children's ideas and time of creation become the ADULT problem solvers of the future.

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