Have more fun this winter at Gymboree Play & Music Bristol!

Gymboree Play and Music Bristol March 2018 Timetable

At Gymboree Play and Music 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 levels 2 – 6.  We recently added level 7 classes for 3-4 year olds which introduces, letters, sounds and numbers.  We offer age appropriate activities in our Art and Music classes.

Our sensory baby classes use song, movement, singing, puppets, fibre optics, bubbles, musical instruments and baby size apparatus.   Plus we offer baby massage courses FREE to all our members!

Our drop off classes for 3 – 5 year olds include preschool / school development and our new Theatre School!

“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!

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