SENSORY BABY PLAY for non-mobile babies from new born to 6 months. It introduces your baby to the world of play at our cosy BABY PLAY class. The most important developmental goal babies have in Gymboree Level 1 is learning to become calm, attentive and interested in the world.

we explore visual and auditory development of babies with sensory play (sights, sounds and textures) and lots of music. We also work on building upper body strength through tummy time (giving babies a chance to see their own reflections in a mirror).

Class also includes a parent discussion time to learn about your child’s development and expand your own support network as a parent.


Play & Learn Classes (Level 2 – Level 6)


Play & Learn Classes 6 months – 4 yrs (Level 2 – 6). You can watch as your little one progress and work all the way up to Level 6. The classes focus on motor skill development (both gross and fine) and also have plenty of music-based activities.


• Music Classes for 6 months-5yrs
Our MUSIC classes are a fabulous way to start exploring rhythm and movement with your child, and are set to a different genre of music every three weeks.

Boogie the winter blues away in our Jazz theme, baila La Bamba in one of our Latin classes, point your toes for Classical and release your inner diva for Disco!
Babies can start MUSIC & DANCE from the age of 6 months in our Music I class, and can continue their musical education up to the age of 5 in Music III.

Budding artists will love our ART classes! Get messy and creative with playdough, paints and plenty of glue and glitter, then take home your masterpiece to show off to the rest of the family.

Gymboree art classes are designed to inspire your child´s creativity. We explore a wide variety of materials when painting, sculpting and doing craft projects. Each week there is a different theme to get creative!

• 3 Plus classes ( 3 years old up to 5 years old)
As well as Music III, Art II and Level 7, children over 3 are well catered for with our THEATRE ARTS, PRE-SCHOOL and PLAYERS classes.

Gymboree School Skills classes prepare children for school. Our programme focuses on developing social-emotional skills such as curiosity, confidence and co-operation. Children are engaged in science, art, story time, pre-writing and movement activities that help to develop these social skills in a fun and developmentally appropriate way. Children are also introduced to basic skills such as letters, letter sounds, numbers and shapes. The class includes both independent and group learning activities.
