GYMBOREE Play & Music Putney IS A SHOE-FREE ZONE. THIS MEANS ADULTS MUST WEAR SOCKS AND CHILDREN MUST HAVE BARE FEET IN OUR CLASSES AT ALL TIMES.

Gymboree Play & Music 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 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?

OUR NEW NORMAL

As some of our branches get the final nod to open their doors we need to outline what the ‘new normal’ will look like at Gymboree Play & Music.

Making sure our customers and staff are safe in a post Covid-19 world is the most important part of this process for us and as such we’ve had to make some changes.  Specifics may change slightly depending on which Gymboree Play & Music you visit, but these new Play Policies will be followed by all.

  • We may have to adapt the timetable to allow for fewer classes and more time in between. Check with your local Gymboree Play & Music for class times.
  • We have reduced the sizes of all classes.
  • We ask you to stick with the same class/es each week for the foreseeable future so we can limit the interaction of households.
  • Please wait outside whilst previous members leave and cleaning is completed. You will need to respect social distancing rules whilst you queue.
  • There will be a one way system in and out of the venue.
  • Everyone will have their temperature taken when they arrive.  Anyone with a high temperature will not be allowed in to class and will have to follow the Government guidance for self isolation.
  • All children and adults will have to wash their hands on arrival and at the end of class.
  • All adults must wear clean socks.
  • No mobile phone use in class to ensure you can commit to social distancing.
  • All adults will need to wear face coverings, our teachers will wear appropriate PPE.
  • Social distancing rules must be adhered to during the class, it is your responsibility to keep your child within an arm’s reach at all times.
  • There will be a longer than usual 30 minute slot between all classes to allow for increased cleaning measures during which time you will not be allowed inside.
  • We will be singing less in class and will use quiet recorded music instead to ensure no raised voices.
  • You will not be able to share toys between households, they will be allocated on arrival.
  • There will be no free flow play, just structured classes.
  • We will adapt all classes to exclude:
    • Gymbo stamps
    • Gymbo kisses
    • Some toys and props
    • Blowing bubbles by mouth

We hope you understand the need for a ‘new normal’ in these times and we assure you our classes will still be lots of fun with social, cognitive and physical development goals at their heart!

Thank you for your understanding 🙏❤

  • A Warm Welcome Back

    26. November 2020

    Wishing you a very warm welcome back to Gymboree Play & Music!

    UPDATED – Further to the Government’s latest announcement we can confirm that all our centres in England have reopened after lockdown from Wednesday 2nd December.

    pic of mother and baby playing at Gymboree Play & Music

    Our centres in Glasgow South and Bearsden & Milngavie are in Scotland’s tier 4 and are currently closed, please get in touch for the latest information. Edinburgh is still open.

    Now the legislation for England has been published it’s clear there are specific exemptions to cover parent and child groups so we can’t wait to see you back in class!

    All of our centres are Covid secure having previously implemented new play policies with smaller ‘bubbled’ classes, one way systems, face coverings, sanitising stations, and no sharing of toys.  So you can continue to feel safe and relaxed at your Gymboree Play & Music classes and enjoy a little bit of normality!

    As always please don’t come to your class if you or your little one have any of the symptoms of Covid-19, we’ll welcome you back with open arms when you’re all better.

    Of course if you’d rather not come back to class right now, that’s perfectly fine, we understand everyone has their own set of circumstances and family members to consider.  Please get in touch with your local centre to discuss your options.

    Thank you all for your continued support and stay safe everyone 🙏🏼💗

  • Give the Gift of Play and Support Local

    18. November 2020
    give the gift of play and support local with our gift vouchers

    With Christmas fast approaching and uncertainty all around, now is the time to give the gift of play and support local with Gymboree Play & Music gift vouchers.

    Although Gymboree Play & Music is proud to be part of a global brand with a 44 year history, all our centres are small businesses in their own right owned by families like yours.  Like many businesses they’ve been closed for about half pic of baby and bubblesof this year with very limited income.  We’ve all been overwhelmed by the love and support we’ve felt from our members and fellow small businesses in our communities, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you’ve done.  We’ve been particularly thrilled to see so many of you back in class in your droves (when rules allow)!

    Now with some light at the end of the tunnel we’re hopeful 2021 will bring better times, where we can move on from lockdowns, new normals, and one way systems!

    In the meantime, for this Christmas, why not give the gift of play and support local all at the same time, with our gift vouchers.  They’re valid for 12 months and can be redeemed at any of our centres across the UK against classes and merchandise.  They make the perfect gift for a new parent, pre-school children, or an existing Gymboree Play & Music member.

    All our teams across the UK really appreciate you supporting them during these unprecedented times, and buying our gift vouchers is one small way you can help.

    Thank you 🙏🏼

  • We’re staying at home

    5. November 2020

    latest Covid-19 update graphic

    Gymboree Play & Music are staying at home 🏡 this lockdown (in England) 👨👧👦👩👧👦👨👩👧👦👨👦👦 

    There has been much speculation as to whether we can continue to operate our classes throughout this second ‘lockdown’, if we could fall into the Government Guidelines for either ‘support groups’ or ‘supervised activities for children.

    Whilst we definitely support the families that come along to our classes, fundamentally we are not a ‘support group’.  Although we do provide ‘supervised activities for children’, this is not so parents and carers can go to work. We feel these are the intentions of the guidance and therefore we don’t feel we fit in the exemptions.

    pic of girl cuddling Gymbo

    The news that specific ‘support groups’ and ‘supervised activities for children’ are able to remain open is brilliant for the families who rely on such services. We are so happy to know that families will still be able to access them 🙏 .

    As business owners this is our livelihoods and we are completely devastated to close our doors again, we ask you to please continue to support your local centre in anyway that you can throughout this ‘lockdown’. 

    We will remain closed until the end of ‘lockdown‘ on 2nd December. We would love nothing more than to still be running our COVID-secure classes and seeing you, our Gymboree Play & Music families, but the instruction is to ‘stay home’ 🏡🌸, and the safety of you, your little ones and our team will always come first.  

    As always thank you so much for all your amazing support. Stay safe everyone & hip hip hooray for another Gymboree day just 4 weeks away ✨😌 

  • Closed for 4 weeks

    2. November 2020
    latest Covid-19 update graphic

    Dear Gymboree Play & Music families,

    Further to Boris’s latest announcement it’s with a heavy heart we must once again temporarily close our doors in England. Having you and your little ones return to our classes has been truly wonderful and we already can’t wait to welcome you back soon

    💗 From this Thursday 5th November in compliance with the latest Government Guidelines all our centres will be temporarily closed for 4 weeks.

    💗 Please wait to hear from your local centre on how they will support you with your membership questions, as you can imagine we will be very busy at this time and will be doing our utmost to manage this situation as efficiently as possible so kindly bear with us

    💗 The safety of you, our members, your little ones, and our staff continues to be our number one priority.

    🙏🏼 Thank you for choosing Gymboree Play & Music and for your continued support. Once the time is right we will welcome you back with ooodles of bubbles and three BIG Gymbo cheers!

    Stay safe and healthy.

    Please note the guidance for our Scotland centres is different but they will be in touch if anything is altering with your membership at any time.

  • Help us to keep you safe

    30. September 2020
    Play Policies diagram

    With all of our centres finally open (hooray!), we want to thank you again for your support over Lockdown and now.  It’s been a very difficult time, and will continue to be for a while to come, so we’re extremely grateful to have many of you back in class.

    We just want to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the new Play Policies put in place to keep our teams and members safe.  We have only been allowed to open by the powers-that-be because we’ve put these policies in place, ensuring a Covid-secure environment for your classes.  Therefore it’s vital that everyone follows the rules and allows our teams the time and space to manage the increased admin and cleaning. Please help us to keep you safe.

    We know it feels a little bit different in class at the moment, we know some of you would rather not wear face coverings, and we know you miss Gymbo stamps and kisses, and seeing your little ones play closely with their friends; but to keep us all safe this is the way it must be for the time being. In order to keep your classes running in our Covid-secure venues you may also see an increase in your membership price.

    Most importantly please can we remind you not to come to class if you or your little one are unwell or have any of the main symptoms:

    • a high temperature
    • a new, continuous cough
    • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

    We have a generous make-up policy and you’ll be able to come back to class when you’re both better.

    Of course, if you’d rather not come back to class right now with these policies in place, that is also fine.  We will welcome you back with open arms when you feel ready.

    Thank you again for helping us to keep you safe!

  • We’re Back!

    14. August 2020

    It’s been such a long time, but after what seems like months and months, we’re back!  But we’re coming back slowly and carefully.Infection control training certificate

    Each of our centres has been going through a very thorough process of risk assessments, training, rearranging, planning, cleaning, and general hoop-jumping to get ready for this very exciting time. We were not going to re-open until we were sure we could keep our members and teams safe whilst still providing you with the classes that you love.

    As a result, we have redesigned our Play Policies to make sure our centres are ‘covid-secure’ so expect to see one-way systems, thermometers, hand sanitiser, face coverings, smaller classes, fewer props, ‘bubbled’ classes, and lots of cleaning!

    Furthermore all of our centre owners have completed Infection Control for Children’s Activities Providers training designed by the Children’s Activities Association and Mini First Aid Feel free to ask to see their certificate!

    But we’re finally here!  A few of our centres have re-opened already and many more will be opening in the coming weeks.

    Whether you’re already a member or new to the Gymboree Play & Music family, get in touch with your local centre now to find out when they’re opening, and book your place.

    We’d love to see you very soon 🥰🙏
