Gymboree Play & Music Jersey would like to invite you and your little ones for a free trial class today! Every day we run award-winning and fun-filled classes for babies and children from 0-5 years, and are based at the Amazing Les Ormes in St Brelade!

 

We offer the UK’s highest quality classes available for 0-5s

Gymboree Play & Music’s commitment to quality is unsurpassed, and every day thousands of parents and carers across the UK choose Gymboree Play & Music because they want the best for themselves and their children. Gymboree Play & Music 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 Play & Music 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 Play & Music 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 Play & Music 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 Play & Music 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 Play & Music, every adult is an active participant and play partner, making your time at Gymboree Play & Music all the more fun and enjoyable.

We are world leaders with almost 40 years of experience

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?

Member Feedback

Just see for yourself the impact our classes & teachers have on our members!

‘We just wanted to say thank you for all your amazing support and fun over the last 6 months. Leo and I have had a blast and wouldn’t change it for the world. From his first baby massage session which he screamed through most of  (he just wanted to watch what was going on!), to his last Music session on Monday with the giant drum – a heart felt thank you for everything.

As soon as I’m back at work, or another baby comes along, we’ll be back to sing along and bang on the giant drum with Gymbo once again.

Don’t stop doing what your doing, lots of love, Mummy & Leo ‘

Baby Massage in Jersey (IAIM)

iaim_logo

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 6 sessions each lasting 1 hour in our beautiful baby lounge.

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 Steph.

Please contact jersey@gymboree-uk.com to reserve your space.

May 2016 – 2 Johns.

 

I recently came across an amazing photographer in St Helier called John! He has owned the 2 Johns in Savile street for 20 years and offers something that no other photographer does in Jersey. When my daughter was born we received a ‘My 1st year wall display’ voucher. The idea is that you capture a professional picture at either birth, 4, 8 and 12 months or 3,6,9 and 12 months. This is then put into one picture board for you to see the physical progression of your baby! It’s amazing and such a lovely way to remember your little one growing in that first year.

As it’s their 20th year of business they are doing lots of competitions and discounts throughout the year so go and check out their website for more details:
