At Swings and Wings, we offer our children opportunities to swing, jump, climb and explore the environment as they desire. Come explore the magic of 'play'
Here's to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them..... Unknown.
As a woman enterpreuner, building a business from scratch has been a different type of adventure. I am grateful for my woman tribe; I met so many who has guided me along this process and continue to be my rock. We did it!
Dynamic standing balance with transitions.
A complicated way of saying- Check out how this almost one year old is using his leg muscles to balance himself, while holding on to a moving object! And see how he cautiously let's go of one hand and lowers himself to the floor? His brain is processing all the information from his legs and directing his body on what to do next.
It brings us so much joy to see that our equipment helps these little ones achieve their developmental milestones :)
Choose us, please!!!
We are finalists in Best of Alameda in two categories:
Best place to take kids
Best new business
The survey is long but you do not have to vote in all categories.
We thank you for your support!
Cleaning our Lego table requires elbow grease but it is an oddly satisfying task and just one example of how seriously we focus on cleanliness.
Keeping our facility clean at all times, using non-toxic, green products that are safe for all of us and the earth is one of our core values and we strongly abide by it.
P.S. We are using Q-tips to get into the crevices of the Lego table here. Any ideas on what to use that would be green/reusuable instead of Q-tips?
Cleanliness is one of our core values and we seriously value it!
Reading matters! Do it in a group or solo, do it in any language or sign; "Books are a uniquely portable magic"- Stephen King
Make a shredded paper sensory bin and you have multi-sensory learning at its best!

We watched in amazement and cheered on, watching this 16 month old fearlessly manuever our cuddle swing.
This swing conforms to the body to calm and organize the mind. See how it is also helping this child with his motor planning and balance? And the best part?? It can take upto 200lb of weight. Which means it a treat for kids and adults!!
We are doing a herbal remedy workshop for all the stressed out parents ( Is there another kind 🤔).
Tomorrow, Tuesday 2/25 from 7pm to 9pm.

Reading aloud is a fun, multisensory activity.
Integrating the auditory, visual and tactile sensations, reading promotes listening, imagination and improves attention span.
Reading with your child not only strengthens your bond with them but is also greatly beneficial for their cognitive, emotional and social development.
We know that books are an important part of purposeful play and we offer a wide variety to engage and excite every child in our space. Check out our reading corner next time you visit us!
We hope to see you this weekend!
Food for mind and body with crafts, sensory bins and treats 😋.
What is not there to love??

We were very sceptical but knew that we needed to do this for the safety of children in our community (Did you know that 1 in 13 children has a food allergy?). It's one of our core values, after all.
With a lot of guidance from our advocate mamas and our community and after a thorough cleaning by our dedicated team members, we are ready!
Thinking Valentine's Day? We got you covered!
Drop off kids and take a nap/get dinner/shop!
Thank you for celebrating with us!!

Oh the ball pit!!!! Such a simple tool for the perfect sensory experience.
The bright balls for visual system, the loud swish when you crash for the auditory, the coolness for the tactile, the pressure for the proprioceptive and the movement for the vestibular.
Plus it gives your trunk a great workout!
Who can possibly resist this?
Had a great long weekend with the kids and survived it?✋
Need some time away now? We got you covered, twice!
Sign up at www.swingsandwings.com; your family needs it ;)
