On September 13, 2016, 40 East Bay parents and their toddlers converged at Oakland Kindergym, located on the bottom floor of Temple Beth Abraham.

Kindergym is a well-lit indoor playspace with colorful playthings for children to climb on and explore.

Sessions are mostly free play with a short circle time and snack at the end. You’ll find many Kindergym hours each week on the calendar.

At our Tot’s Day Out, we raffled off some fun prizes and sent guests home with goody bags.
