Gathering & social support

Structured gathering places. By placing gathering areas in proximity to play areas, children are encouraged to try social behaviors, knowing that they can remove themselves for personal space and calming if necessary. At the same time, parents and caregivers can gather for support and conversation, yet remain in proximity to their children.
