The Heimbold Family Children's Playing & Learning Center
Incorporating inspirations from early childhood education centers in Scandinavia into this premier indoor learning and play space in New York, the Heimbold Family Children’s Playing and Learning Center integrates the best of Scandinavian design while emphasizing early childhood sensory perception. Young children and their caregivers have fun while learning about the culture of Scandinavia through books, toys, art workshops, and interactive programs.
Within the two distinct yet complementary areas – an activity room and a sensory room – design highlights include a reading theater, sensory tunnel, custom Lego® corner, landscaped BRIO® train table, indoor climbing corner, mushroom house, a “please touch” wall, light landscape, and imported Scandinavian educational elements.
This magical interior landscape transports children from Park Avenue all the way to Scandinavia and back again, without the need for an airplane ticket!
In order to keep the Playing and Learning Center safe,
clean, pleasant, and available to everyone, we ask that you
abide by the following rules:
In light of the redesigned and reimagined Heimbold Family Children’s Playing and Learning Center, which encourages free play and exploration, as well as additions in programming for kids and families, we are requiring patrons of the Center to sign a liability waiver. This is common practice for such activity spaces for children and will allow our Center to continue providing the highest level of quality learning and play for your child(ren).
We ask that you sign the attached form and bring it/send it the next time your child(ren) visits the Playing and Learning Center. As of May 15, 2012 children are not allowed to play unless a waiver has been signed. Waivers will be kept on file and will be renewed annually with your ASF Membership.
