Leaps…n…Boundz is an adaptive sports and recreation program for children with special needs of all ages. We offer programs in gymnastics, swimming, and ball skills both one-on-one and in small groups. We also provide social skills groups and day camps. Through our programs children build self-esteem, which allows them to explore beyond their horizons into new territory. They build body strength and awareness as well as lasting relationships and friendships. We not only work to help each child, we create opportunities for the family as well. We organize leisure activities and weekend trips to provide opportunities for families to experience rafting, surfing, camping, sporting events, and other fun activities with ease. At Leaps…n…Boundz, we design our programs to help build a community within our “family.”
The Leaps…n…Boundz staff comes from a variety of backgrounds and experiences including biology, child development, occupational therapy, recreation therapy, kinesiology, and education to name a few. Each staff member takes his/her background to design a well-rounded curriculum to enhance your child’s experience and create a safe space for exploration. Through hard work and dedication, Leaps…n…Boundz has forged great bonds with families, providing a positive learning environment that helps your child stretch “leaps and bounds.” We are conveniently located in several locations in and around the Los Angeles area. We look forward to working with you, your child, and your family.
“Play for young children is not recreation activity…It is not leisure-time activity nor escape activity…Play is thinking time for young children. It is language time. Problem-solving time. It is memory time, planning time, investigating time. It is organization-of-ideas time, when the young child uses his mind and body and his social skills and all his powers in response to the stimuli he has met.”
