Boca Raton play gym aims to be the one place kids don’t have to say they’re sorry
“I LOVE THIS PLACE!” my 6 year-old daughter and 2 year-old nephew exclaimed as my sister and I walked (they ran) into the brand-new location of We Rock the Spectrum Boca Raton.
I almost yelled the same thing considering we were entering a wonderfully air conditioned space from 93-degree Florida heat outside.
An indoor play gym on a scorching or rainy day is a Boca mom’s godsend if you happen to have little kids with lots of energy to burn. And We Rock is extra special because they not only cater to typically developing children, but to those with autism or special needs as well—They believe in accommodating everyone.
While We Rock the Spectrum Boca Raton is now in an upgraded location in The Boca Hamptons Plaza on Lyons Road, we’ve been going to this sensory-safe play gym since my daughter, Avery, was only 1 year old. (FYI—I remember her crying so hard when we left after our first visit! It was that fun.)
A family-owned franchise, they’ve now doubled in size from their original space to a bright, wide-open playtime mecca that offers tons of classes, birthday parties, a toddler play area and more. In making sure We Rock sticks to their core mission of inclusion, they’ve also added a low-lit calming room for kids who might need a sensory break.
The activities at We Rock the Spectrum are endless. From a spring-free trampoline and jungle gym to swings, a zip line, rock climbing wall and imaginary play stations, no two visits will be ever be the same for your children. As for the parents, We Rock has also added a “bar area” where moms and dads can hang out and supervise their children from a distance or have a snack at a little café table next to the We Rock Shop. Having more space has really made a big difference.
A couple things to note before you visit We Rock the Spectrum Boca Raton:
There is no age limit for children with special needs. For neurotypical children, ages 11 and under.
$14 per child; siblings discounted to $12 each.
There are monthly memberships available.
A parent or guardian must accompany the child during Open Play at all times.
Rock on Boca families!
