Unfortunately, we’ve had to suspend our classes due to the Coronavirus pandemic – we hope this won’t be for too long! We are, however, excited to announce the launch of our brand new Gymbo @ Home programme! Check out the Gymbo @ Home tab below for more information :)


Gymboree Play & Music Chiswick runs award-winning and fun-filled classes for 0-5 year olds Monday through Saturday.

Why not come along for an action-packed free trial class today!


Gymboree Play & Music began in 1976 when Joan Barnes, a mother from California, tried to find a safe, fun place featuring age-appropriate activities for parents and young children to play together. Unable to do so, she did what any enterprising person would – she started her own! Gymboree Play & Music has been proudly inspiring parents and children ever since. Today, with classes in over 700 locations in over 40 countries, Gymboree Play & Music is the global leader in early childhood development programmes. Why settle for less?

Found at our site:

  • Buggy park
  • Toilets
  • Baby changing station
  • Baby swing chair for tiny siblings
  • Ample car parking in the area using public car parks and street parking

Getting to us:

  • Gymboree Play & Music Chiswick is based in the Council Chamber of Chiswick Town Hall.
  • For those driving, there is metered parking on the forecourt of the Town Hall and on all surrounding streets.
  • If travelling by bus, you can take the following routes and get off at the stop for Turnham Green Church which is opposite the town hall: 27, 237, 267, 391, 440, H91, N9; or the 272 or E3 which stop directly outside.
  • If travelling by tube, we are a five-minute walk from Chiswick Park Station or a 15-minute walk for Turnham Green Station



We understand the need for children to be properly stimulated at home, so we have created a bespoke online package to entertain and educate your little ones from the comfort of your living room.

With classes for newborns up to 5-year-olds, in a range of subjects from Music to Fitness we have every area covered, so that you can rest assured that your little one is still learning, having fun and (most importantly) staying active while they’re at home.

We host all of our online content through a private Facebook group, so there is no need to have your camera turned on. All of our videos are saved online so you can catch up on previous sessions if you aren’t able to tune in live, or if your little one has a favourite activity that they want to do over and over again!

Our Gymbo @ Home Membership costs just £20 per month, and for this price you get unlimited access to all of our online content plus two FREE classes at Gymboree Play & Music Chiswick when we re-open our doors.

If you would like to sign up of if you would like more information on our exclusive online content, please contact us at or give us a call on 07967 835059.

From the range of the equipment, toys and activities, to the flexibility of the classes, it is simply brilliant on every aspect.

  • Closed, for now

    19. March 2020

    Further to our update on Wednesday, and the subsequent instructions from the Government, we have taken the very sad decision to close all our centres (those not already closed) from the end of play on Friday 20th March.  We’d like to thank all of you who’ve contacted our teams with such kind and supportive comments, it has made a difficult decision slightly more bearable 💔

    closed for now sign

    We have been working hard to develop Gymbo at Home for our customers which will bring live action and pre-recorded class activities to you via a secure online environment.  This will be available for new and existing customers. Keep an eye out for an announcement on this very soon 👀

    Gymboree Play & Music is a network of small family-run businesses so this closure will hit us very hard.  If you’re able to continue with your membership, switching to Gymbo at Home, we would be eternally grateful 🙏

    If you have any questions about your membership, want to access Gymbo at Home, or freeze your membership, please get in contact with your local Gymboree Play & Music.  Also if you’re a customer, look out for closed Facebook groups for your local centre where you can keep in touch with the team and fellow Gymboree families.

    Finally, although our doors are closed you can still buy Gymboree Play & Music gift vouchers online which will be honoured for at least 12 months, allowing you to further support Gymboree Play & Music, and give the gift of (virtual or delayed) play!

    For more information on Covid-19 (coronavirus) and how to keep yourselves safe you can read the Public Heath England or Health Protection Scotland websites.

    Once again, we thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you ‘at Home‘.

  • Covid-19 update

    18. March 2020

    We at Gymboree Play & Music care about the safety and wellbeing of our customers and their families; and we hope you are managing to stay as stress free as possible in these difficult times.  As such we are monitoring the Government Covid-19 guidelines by the hour to make sure we are making the right decisions for you and our teams.

    please support Gymboree Play & Music

    please support Gymboree Play & Music

    In the light of the most recent announcements some of our sites have decided to close, either because their venue has closed, or because they cannot staff their site.  As of 11am on Thursday 18th March the following sites are closed:

    • Edinburgh
    • Glasgow South
    • Kensington
    • Solihull
    • Tunbridge Wells
    • Watford
    • Wimbledon

    All other sites are open, but it’s probably best to double-check with your site before you leave home if you’re coming to classes.

    Gymboree Play & Music are a network of small family run businesses and these are scary times for our franchisees and their teams.  We are trying to provide our classes for as long as possible to avoid disruption for you and your families, and maintain the livelihoods of our teams.  We have however made some changes to our classes, where running, to take even greater care of health and hygiene:

    • Hands to be washed before and after class
    • No Gymbo kisses – we are bringing Gymbo out but not physically giving kisses
    • No Gymbo stamps on hands or feet, but we can stamp your child’s Gymbo sticker 
    • We are only using necessary props and ensuring everything is cleaned with antibacterial cleaner including surfaces and toys are every use.
    • We are using a bubble fan rather than the bubble blower.

    Furthermore we are working on an exciting project to bring Gymboree Play & Music classes to our customers in their homes for when the time comes to close completely.  Please watch out for news on this and if you can possibly continue to support your local Gymboree Play & Music in the weeks and months to come we would be so very grateful ❤🙏

    For more information on Covid-19 (coronavirus) and how to keep yourselves safe you can read the Public Heath England or Health Protection Scotland websites.

    Keep safe,
