Hello and Welcome to Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh – Edinburgh’s number one choice for baby and toddler development classes.

Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh Playfloor

At Gymboree Play & Music Edinburgh we have fantastic play & learn, sensory baby play and Pre-School classes for children aged from New-born to 5 years and we are open every day at our brilliant location in the south west of Edinburgh in the Slateford/Gorgie area.

We offer a full timetable of baby and toddler classes and Open Gym sessions which all our members enjoy access to daily. We have wonderful teachers, plenty of free parking and a snack room equipped with tables and highchairs so you can eve stay for lunch!

There is something for every baby and toddler here at Gymboree Play & Music Edinburgh and with so many varied options you and your little one can hopefully make us part of your busy schedule. Check out the Class timetable tab on this page for more details.

As the global leaders of developmentally appropriate physical and cognitive fun, we help to grow your little one’s body and mind! 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 offer a range of award-winning classes throughout the week for New-born babies and up to children of 5 years! Please download our current timetable here:

Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh Class Timetable 2020

Classes Offered:

Baby Massage: We are passionate about the importance of touch and bonding with your baby and massage is a great way to introduce this to you both! Research shows that the first 1000 days of a child’s life are highly influential on their life-long mental health, and we want to help you along that crucial journey. Our Baby Massage course consists of 5 sessions each lasting 2 hours. We invite babies (under 1 year) and their parents along to learn all about the importance of touch and hope you will use this course as an opportunity to bond with your baby whilst learning and practising the different massage strokes with our fully qualified IAIM instructors, Nicole and Laura.

To learn more about Infant massage please follow this link!

Sensory Baby Play:  Developed just for babies from New-born to six months, in Sensory Baby Play we help you to find joy in playing with your new baby. Never overwhelming, always just right for your child, we sing, play, move and introduce new sensory experiences that will help your baby become calm, attentive and interested in play.

Play and Learn: Gymboree Play & Learn classes take place on our play floor with our specially designed equipment. The classes focus on motor skill development (both gross and fine) and also have plenty of music-based activities. We change our equipment set-up and the lesson plans every 2 weeks. This way, children have a chance to learn through repetition but are challenged with something new every 2 weeks. Play & Learn classes include family classes for adults with 1 or more children. Our hard and soft equipment is designed to be developmentally challenging to help little ones become confident through play.

Family Play and Learn: Bring all your children to the same class and enjoy fun, physical and cognitive learning activities created for groups of siblings and friends. With classes devoted to supporting multi-aged learning, children 0-5 years are encouraged to socially interact and learn from each other. Activities provide fun new challenges for every developmental stage!

Make up Classes: We have a ‘catch-up’ policy – any missed class can be made-up with an extra class to be taken within a month!

Open Gym: Once you sign up to a class you automatically become a member of Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh which entitles you to unlimited use of our Open Gym Sessions, free of charge, on the days we are open.

Turn your child’s special day into an unforgettable birthday celebration!

We’ve been to a fair few birthday parties here (all amazing) and just had our son’s 1st birthday party here which was also completely amazing! Nicole’s energy and talent for children’s classes and entertainment is second to none! We had 4 month old kids to 3.5 year olds at the party and every single one of them had a brilliant time. Can’t wait for our next visit!’

‘Thanks again for the AMAZING party you hosted this morning. Everyone had such a brilliant time and tonight there is one very happy little boy in this house. All the activities were great fun and everyone was made to feel very welcome and helped and encouraged to join in. We felt that the whole event ran very smoothly, there was plenty of time for everything. We could not have asked for a better party.’

  • We’re getting ready to re-open!

    15. June 2020
    image of child getting ready

    UPDATE: Further to Boris’ announcement on 23rd June, we are still waiting for a date to open.  No Gymboree Play & Music sites will open on the 4th July and we will provide further information about opening as soon as we can.

    We hope you and your families have been keeping well during these difficult times. At Gymboree Play & Music, we are obviously concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and have been watching the Government and industry guidance closely. For over 43 years, we have been providing world class programmes for children, and your continued trust in our brand is a priority. As such, following current Government guidelines, we are working on opening some of our sites from 4th July 2020, however this is subject to change.

    We have upgraded our cleaning procedures in all of our locations beyond our already stringent practices. We ask you to help us by:

    • washing you and your little ones’ hands before and after class
    • staying home if sick or not feeling well
    • monitoring anything that has been placed in your child’s mouth
    • respecting social distancing
    • wearing a face covering during class (adults only)

    Further to these increased hygiene policies, we’re also changing our teaching activities;

    • we’ve removed some props from the classroom
    • instrument exploration, tactile table, play dough and other direct contact activities have been removed
    • we are spraying down our crayons with alcohol
    • no Gymbo kisses or Gymbo stamps.

    While we can’t eliminate all potential exposures, we can keep our sites clean and limit your exposure while enjoying our classes. Our families have trusted us for decades for our cleaning standards and excellent programming and we are continuing this legacy of trust.

    We want to make sure that your children have a proper allotted time for physical, emotional and cognitive growth all year round, and as such we have a flexible make up policy so please can we ask that you only attend class when you and your children are healthy.

    At Gymboree Play & Music, we want our families to STAY HEALTHY and PLAY HEALTHY now and throughout the year!

    Please do get in touch with your local branch to discuss their re-opening plans and reserve a space in their classes.

  • 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‘.

Nicole- Franchisee

Nicole always knew she wanted to work with Children so after gaining her diploma in Musical Theatre she started her search for her dream job – a place where she could sing and have fun while growing young minds! Her search didn’t take long because she found Gymboree Classes and fell in love with the ethos, principles and foundations of what Gymboree Classes offer. Nicole bought her franchise in 2012 and Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh opened its doors in March 2013. Since then Nicole has had the pleasure to be part of hundreds of little people’s lives and takes great pride in getting to know each child and their families personally. Nicole is now also a fully qualified IAIM infant massage instructor and has trained in Makaton Signing for babies.

 

 

 

Laura – Play and Music Teacher

Laura is a fully qualified Primary School Teacher who joined the Gymboree Play and Music team in 2017 after the birth of her second child. Laura has a strong love for the Edinburgh site as she is Nicole’s older sister and therefore has been a helping hand since the very beginning. Laura’s eldest child attended classes from 1 week old until her 5th birthday so Laura has an understanding of classes from both a parent and a teachers’ perspective. Laura qualified as a IAIM infant massage instructor in 2019 and says she loves everything about her job, but she especially loves seeing so many smiling faces every day when she comes to work.

 

 

 

 

Heather – Play and Music Teacher 

Heather has been part of the team since 2018 and is loved by all the members and their children. Heather is trained in acting and performing and these skills are evident in each and every one of her classes as she takes little one’s on some incredible imaginative adventures. Heather loves getting to know all our families and loves that she has found a place where she can help to grow the minds of so many little people while doing something she really enjoys.

 

 

 

 

 

Bethan – Play and Music Teacher

Bethan is our newest teacher, joining the team in 2019 after graduating with a degree in Music. Bethan has a very nurturing energy in her classes and always encourages every child to try something new and to reach their goals with confidence. A fan favourite with all the children, Bethan loves delivering every class and says she has found her dream job combining her music skills with her love for children, something which is clear in all of her classes.

Ella – Party Assistant

Ella joined the team at the end of 2019 and is loving getting to be part of so may fun filled Birthday parties every weekend. Ella is always more than happy to help parents in any way she can on their little one’s special day and loves getting to encourage the children to try new and exciting things with every party.

Here are just a few of the wonderful things people say about Gymboree Play and Music Edinburgh!

‘Great age appropriate classes and amazing staff. The staff make such an effort to get to know each individual child. I love that the children are free to explore the equipment and directed to specific tasks. Having a focus for a few week is great for developing their skills in lots of different areas. I also love the structure of the class and having certain things the little ones do every week. My little girl always looks forward to a freeze on the airlog and getting her bubbles.’

‘I’ve been taking my 4yr old daughter to Gymboree for nearly three years. She loves it and it’s been great for her development and social skills. The Edinburgh team are fantastic, super friendly, great with the kids and the parents. My favourite class by far.’

‘I started taking my daughter to Gymboree when she was 9 months old and have loved watching her confidence grow each week. She wasn’t even crawling when we first started but now (17 months old) she is trying to climb on all the equipment and importantly, has learned the safe way to climb down from things. The staff are so friendly and always share in your delight when the children manage to do something that they maybe couldn’t do the previous week. The equipment is clean and really good condition, and the lunch room is brilliant for satisfying hungry tums before or after class and getting to know the other parents. I hope to keep taking my daughter as she moves up through all the levels as she gets older – we love Gymbo!’

‘Best toddler class ever. My daughter enjoys the imaginative and physical elements of the class, and look forward to her class each week.’

‘Been taking my daughter since she was about 6 months old. She’s 2.5 now and still loves it! The classes are fun and energetic. It’s by far the best class we do and we’ve tried a few! It’s brilliant having the snack room too so that we can socialise after the class. It’s become the highlight of our week.’

Happy girl in classes

All your questions answered here!

Yes. We have our own private car park which has 15 car parking spaces in it including a disabled access space. We are also only a short walk form other car parks and on the street paking is available on Slateford Road.

Why do I need socks but my child is bare foot?

We kindly ask that adults are in socks during classes for hygiene reasons, we then ask that children have bare feet due to health and safety.
