Creativity, Confidence, Friendship… It all starts at Gymboree!

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!

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!

We use music, song, dance and imaginative play to create a wonderful learning experience for all our little ones, using our specially designed equipment as part of our most popular Play and Learn sessions.

Unlimited sensory baby classes use song, movement, singing, puppets, fibre optics, bubbles, musical instruments and baby size apparatus.   Attend classes 5 days a week including Saturdays for your monthly membership.  Plus we offer baby massage courses discounted to £20 for all our members!

Our PlayLab class is an innovative program that brings S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) learning to life, with activities especially designed for 2-5 year olds.

We offer family classes in Art and Music, as well as a family Play and Learn class on a Saturday for 6 months to 4 years.

Our drop off school skills classes for 3 – 4 year olds are all about investigating, exploring, questioning, practicing new skills and building friendships ahead of school in groups of no more than 6.

Our spacious site is within walking distance of Westbury on Trym, Henleaze, Westbury Park, Stoke Bishop.  We are an easy drive from all parts of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset and have our own large car park to make your journey stress-free.

“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!”

Not only do we offer award winning classes for the 0 – 5s but we also have a fabulous café on our site which is completely child friendly.

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