Gymboree’s commitment to quality is unsurpassed and every day thousands of parents and carers across the UK choose Gymboree because they want the best for themselves and their children. Gymboree 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 are the experts in early childhood development

At Gymboree 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 Gymboree 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. Gymboree has published its own best-selling books on “learning through play” and develops its class curriculum with the involvement and input of experts from around the world.

We actively involve parents and carers in our classes

Gymboree classes are recognised for our unique approach to parent/carer involvement which encourages adult participation in and understanding of all class activities. Research has shown that young children learn best – and have the most fun – when parents and carers enter their world of play and imagination. At Gymboree, every adult is an active participant and play partner, making your time at Gymboree all the more fun and enjoyable.

We are world leaders with 40 years of experience

Gymboree 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 has been proudly inspiring parents and children ever since. Today, with classes in over 700 locations in over 40 countries, Gymboree is the global leader in early childhood development programmes. Why settle for less?

Brand new government guidelines were released recently, which highlighted the importance of physical activity and play in young children’s early development. The report outlined the vital role of PLAY and MOVEMENT in early  childhood, putting emphasis on encouraging children, particularly those  that aren’t walking, to crawl, roll and play – physical activity is now  encouraged from birth, ‘particularly through floor-based play…in safe  environments’. Meanwhile, children that are up on their feet are now recommended to have at least 3 hours of activity, spread throughout a  day with periods of rest in-between.
As stated in the report, these kind of movements are ‘…provide valuable opportunities to build social and emotional bonds
with parents, siblings and other children.’

Recent Reviews from Current Members:

My sons attend the baby class and the toddler stage 4 class. They have so much fun and normally have a good sleep after. There is a closer Gymboree play and music to us but we travel to Horsley because of the amazing Lauren who completely captivates the children. She also has a good set of lungs on her which helps to keep them engaged!”


“My daughter has been attending Lauren’s Gymboree play and music class for 2 years and today was her last one as she’s off to pre-school and I was so sad I cried at the end of our class this morning. By far the best class in Surrey you will attend with your little one- we also did a 2nd birthday party with Lauren which was also amazing . Don’t hesitate to get involved with this Gymboree class as your child will love it and you will see her excel in so many areas of her development . Lauren is incredibly talented and is a star – one that I will miss.”


“The best of all the many classes I have tried between Guildford and Cobham. Small and friendly but energetic and fun enough. Tailored to and appropriate levels for each little person.”


If you would like to review our classes please send them through to me at horsley@gymboree-uk.com and I will get them posted on our website.
