TAKE A LOOK AT THE IMPACT OUR CLASSES AND TEACHERS HAVE ON OUR MEMBERS

‘Gymboree is the highlight of our week and my toddler has gained so much confidence from coming to these sessions!’

‘It has been the best place for my daughter to play, learn, bond with me and other kids.’

‘A genuinely caring group of teachers who make every effort to create an interesting, fun and friendly environment for the children and their carers. They go the extra mile to try and get to know the kids and the carers and build a relationship.’

‘I have been taking my son to Gymboree Chiswick for several months now and I would highly recommend it. From the range of the equipment, toys and activities, to the flexibility of the classes, it is simply brilliant on every aspect. The classes are always fun, lively and engaging and my son absolutely adores the staff whose passion for the job and love for the kids really comes across. It is the highlight of our week and I am so glad we joined.’

  • Children in Need at your local Gymboree Play & Music!

    12. November 2019

    It’s not long until Children in Need this Friday and we are proud to say that many of our branches are taking part throughout the week to raise money for their amazing good causes.

    Children in Need want every child in the UK to have a childhood which is safe, happy, secure, and allows them the chance to reach their potential.  They provide grants to over 3000 local charities and projects all around the UK which focus on children who are disadvantaged.

    We at so lucky at Gymboree Play & Music to be able to enhance little ones’ lives through play, and see the joy on their faces when they spend quality time with their parents and carers.  These opportunities are sadly not accessible for everyone, therefore we are asking you, our members, to donate whatever you can to this amazing charity!

    We wanted to have as much fun as possible whilst raising money so we will be throwing a pyjama party at many of our branches across the UK this week.  So you can come dressed in your PJs, bring your little ones in their pyjamas, and you’ll even find some of us in ours!

    Check out what your local branch is doing and get involved, or just feel free to donate if you can’t make it to one of our special events 🙏😍

  • Piccolo’s new look and new launches!

    Piccolo’s new look and new launches!28. May 2019

    Continuing their mission of making 100% organic, balanced and nutritious food inspired by the Mediterranean, Piccolo’s new products are designed with busy families in mind.

    The stylish new pouch packaging design launching this month accentuates the ingredients within and clearly communicates the brand’s ethos of helping families enjoy life’s adventures to the full. The ingredients, dietary information and nutritionals are even more clearly labelled and the new packs are the first UK baby food to include a QR code, linking through to more detailed information on the Piccolo website – so parents can find out exactly where those delicious, organic ingredients come from.

    But that’s not all; Piccolo are also launching several new ranges – including a new cooking at home range featuring stock cubes and stir-in sauces, specially developed for little ones. They are low in sugar and salt, and the stir in sauces are one of your babys’ 5 a day; meaning one less thing to worry about.

    That’s not all – there’s also snacks – Piccolo’s new snacking range includes Italian inspired breadsticks and tasty teething wafer Squares handily packed in on-the-go packets.  

    Cat Gazzoli, founder of Piccolo says: “At Piccolo we are always looking at new ways to help families enjoy nutritious meals and snacks without the worry or hassle. Our new pouch meals, healthy snacks and cooking range aim to take away the stress of finding food that’s delicious and convenient for cooking at home or when you are on the go – leaving you with more time for what really matters.”

    “With balance and variety absolutely key to babies’ health and development, we’re excited to offer growing families an even wider range of ingredients, flavours and textures for their little ones to try developed by our in house infant nutritional therapist Alice Fotheringham.”
