Creativity, Confidence, Friendship… It all starts at Gymboree Play & Music!

Our classes utilise a unique and impressive combination of music, movement, props, imaginary play and custom-designed and patented apparatus, all to create a fun and magical world where children learn, thrive and most importantly have fun.

We are often told by parents, “You are the only class that manages to engage my child.” This is not a coincidence! It is a reflection of the fact that we are the experts in early childhood development and as such, we know children; we know what works, what engages, and what is appropriate for the many different developmental stages between birth and age 5.

Open six days a week, we are completely unique, loads of fun and importantly, you and your little one will learn lots with us!  Our popular classes are delivered by our fantastic team at our very own site in Westbury on Trym, complete with Café and Car Park. We also do amazing children’s birthday parties!

Click HERE for a link to our class request form, and we will suggest some class options for a Free trial.

As well as your weekly class booking, membership includes access to daily free play sessions and with our unlimited make ups policy if you miss a class, we offer unrivalled quality and flexibility for busy parents. You never have to worry about missing a class with us, if you can’t make it, book a different day, or do two classes another week!

Gymboree Play and Music has been proudly inspiring parents and children with Play, Movement and Fun for over 40 years. With classes in over 700 locations in over 40 countries, we are the global leader in early childhood development programmes. Why settle for less?

Reviews for Gymboree Play and Music Bristol

Check out some of the reviews we have had from our lovely customers.

“I’m so so pleased I found Gymboree. My shy little 20 month old absolutely loves it there and the staff are so fantastic with him- he really is blossoming there and thoroughly enjoys classes as well as the open gym. The open gym especially has been brilliant for me whilst heavily pregnant- he can burn off some energy in a very safe environment, only 5 minutes from our house. Thank you! Especially to Vince and Polly.”

“We love our weekly classes at Gymboree and the open gym is great too! All the members of staff are lovely and the cafe is good for a nice coffee after class. There is such a welcoming environment and everyone we meet is so friendly.”

“Thank you Gymboree for my children’s birthday party yesterday. My 1 and 3 year old had the best time and all our friends and family loved it! Polly was amazing with all the children and the party tea was spot on. I cannot recommend gymboree more highly, excellent weekly classes and the perfect party venue.”

“I bring my 2.5yr old and 13 month old to Gymboree and they love it! I have a very shy older child and no fear boisterous youngest. The classes cater for both and the instructors adapt to their needs. We love dressing up for the themed parties. My girls don’t go to nursery or a childminder, so Gymboree is a fab opportunity to mix with other kids and adults. Thoroughly recommend to everyone and wish we found it sooner”

“I have been taking my son to gymboree since he was 5.5 months old. He is now almost 11 months old and we have just stopped as I am about to go back to work. My son and I have loved every minute. It has been our favourite class and we are both sad not to be able to attend anymore!

Polly and Vince are great, and my son loved them both (and gymbo of course)! The open gym sessions are brilliant, especially with a mobile baby – it certainly helps to burn off some energy. All of the parents I have encountered have been really friendly.

My son has learnt a lot from these classes and I feel it has helped him to develop and progress. I would recommend gymboree to everyone.”

Here are a few comments from parties we have hosted:-

“Simply AMAZING!”

“Thank you very much for providing entertainment for our Birthday Party! It’s been great. Kids had so much fun and we got fantastic feedback from adult guests. All saying that you did a fabulous job. So well done and thank you:)”

“I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for hosting such a great party for my son’s second birthday last Saturday.  Your levels of enthusiasm and energy surpassed all of my expectations and meant that all the kids were really engaged in playing.  You catered very well for the mix of ages we had, and the travel theme worked brilliantly. The venue also worked really well for our group – a great size, and excellent to be able to use the kitchen facilities to keep the tea and coffee flowing to the parents!”

Gymbo’s Play Cafe

Not only do we offer award winning classes for the 0 – 5s but we also have a fabulous child friendly café.  Play with musical instruments, books, soft play shapes and a variety of toys.

If you need a snack we offer hot toast, crumpets, pancakes with a range of toppings, along with crisps and snack bars. If your little one needs a bite to eat we have a range of meal and fruit pouches to keep them going.

If you fancy something sweet our delicious range of cakes include brownies, flapjacks and the ever popular caramel slice.  They really are mouth watering!

And then to top it all off, all our staff are trained to make you a wonderful relaxing coffee.  From espresso to cappuccino the choice is yours.

Gymbo’s Cafe is open 10-3 Monday to Friday and 10-11:45 on Saturday.
