The Importance of Play

Government guidelines highlight the importance of physical activity and play in young children’s early development. A recent 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.’

Gymboree have been encouraging Play, Movement and Fun in all of their classes for 40 years – so why not book in your FREE Trial class today!

Here's what our party goers think of our parties:

I just wanted to email to say a HUGE thank you to all of the staff at Gymboree for helping to organise my son Noah's second birthday party on Saturday 14th January. It was absolutely brilliant and he really had a fantastic time. Everyone that I have spoken to since has commented on how excellent it was. I know my sister in law has signed up for classes with her 3 month old and I am to book a class for Noah too. (Jennifer, mum of Noah, January 2017)

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Avril and Caroline for making Alice's first birthday amazing. The whole session was perfectly planned and included some of Alice's favourite activities. There was so much energy put in to everything we did and really made Alice and her friends feel very special. I have received so many thank you texts and emails from our friends and family saying what a great party it was. When it came to the lunch break they both took control and handed out all the children's food and made sure the adults had drinks too. Avril even helped cutting the cake for my goody bags. I didn't have to worry about anything so I got to join in with the activities and enjoy the party as the ladies took care of everything for us. Over all the party was a great success and just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone. I'm sure we will be having a Gymboree party for the 2nd birthday. (Juliet, mum of Alice, December 2016)

We wanted to thank you for hosting Holly's 2nd birthday party. You did a fantastic job, everyone enjoyed it so much, especially the children and there were so many compliments about how amazing you were. So from all of us, a huge thank you! (Susie, mum of Holly, April 2016)

Thank you so much for giving Max such a brilliant 2nd birthday party. We really enjoyed it, and thank you for making it so special. Max and all his friends had a great time. (Hollie, mum of Max, March 2016)

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a special first birthday for Kadence. She had the best time and so did all her little friends. Colette thank you for all your effort into making it such a fun day and making it so easy for me. For once I actually got to enjoy one of my baby's birthday parties instead of running around sorting everything out. Thank you so much again. (Sharon, mum of Kadence, February 2016)

Thank you so much for hosting my daughters' Gymboree party for her second birthday. Everybody had a great time. It was wonderful to be able to arrive on the day with everything ready to go, without any stress. The games were great and the children were really engaged for the whole party. Special thanks to Colette for your energy and enthusiasm. You accommodated us at very late notice too, which I am very thankful for. I would happily recommend a Gymboree party to anyone with preschool kids. (Mary, mum of Jessica, January 2016)

Gymboree is my daughter's favourite activity after school, so we didn't hesitate to organise her birthday party there. The price was very reasonable and I hadn't to worry about anything other than bringing the food as the party bags were also offered by them. The two hours ran so quickly as the activities are organised in a very dynamic manner. The place is so cozy that enables everyone to participate in such a fun way. The party girls were so helpful and they quickly designed the playing activities according to the average age of the attendants. Gymboree is such a lovely place, and all our guests agreed!! Nia was the happiest little girl and after 3 months she is still remembering her big day. (Erika, mum of Nia, January 2016)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Austin's 2nd birthday party, it was fantastic! I am thrilled that I decided to have the party on site (very little organisation required from mummy!) Everyone loved the fun vehicle themed activities and Austin's face was a picture when he got to ride on the dumper truck! Having Caroline and Colette there was like having two extra friends at the party! (Lisa, mum of Austin, September 2015)

Hi Ladies, just a quick note to say a belated thank you for doing such a great job at Hanna's party on Sunday 21st. We all really enjoyed the Teddy Bear's picnic - Hanna is already asking when 'her ladies' can come back! Michelle, mum of Hanna (June 2015)

Hi ladies just wanted to send you a massive thank you for our party on Saturday, was amazing and all the tots really loved it! It was really special for us mums (& dad's!) to see them all playing, climbing, dancing together and having so much fun! Julie, mum of Evie & Freya (June 2015)

HUGE thank you to Caroline and Gymboree for Tommy's 1st birthday party. It was all amazing and wouldn't have been half the fun without you. All the children really enjoyed themselves and some very happy parents as all the children went to bed early! One word for Caroline - Legend! Highly recommend a Gymboree party. Emma, mum of Tommy (January 2015)

We would just like to thank you both for Caleb's wonderful 3rd birthday party. The vehicle theme, which you cleverly introduced for him, was a big hit and the set up was great and the perfect size for a lovely party. Caleb had a blast. The range of activities was brilliant with bubbles, songs, dancing, the parachute and all the climbing apparatus too and your enthusiasm and energy topped it all off. I have received so many lovely comments and thank yous from all who attended. Everyone had a fabulous time!
Thank you both so much for going out of your way to ensure it all ran smoothly and for all your help with setting up and clearing away. It made the whole thing stress-free and enjoyable! Jemma, mum of Caleb (January 2015)

A huge thank you to Gymboree for entertaining 62 (probably more) children and 50 adults at the Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge Twins and Triplets Club Christmas Party. Wow. Organised chaos has never been a more appropriate term! You kept them all happy and everyone had a great time. It was fabulous. Such positive comments from parents. Thank you. Joanna, TWTTTC (December 2014)

We booked Gymboree to entertain at our son's second birthday party and we would highly recommend it.   The children were entertained for an hour with songs and activities that they could participate in and they all really enjoyed themselves. Sarah, mum of Joshua (April 2014)

Anne had a wonderful time! The children all played happily and really enjoyed the story, Caroline and Sinéad did a great job, and I wish I could have videoed Anne triumphantly flinging her arms out at the end saying Best Birthday Ever! Fiona, mum of Anne (October 2013)

I just wanted to drop you a note to say a very big thank you for Lexie and Amber-Lily's party.  It was a huge success.  The girls loved it and we had lots of feedback to say the guests had had a great time.  Best of all it felt stress-free - which quite frankly was a big factor in our decision to choose you and which did not disappoint!  The environment worked really well, the games were fun and all your helpful touches made a real difference.  I am certain we made the right choice and would be happy to recommend you.  Alison, mum of Lexie (September 2013)

Just wanted to say a big thank you for providing the fabulous entertainment for my son Elliot's 1st birthday party. You did a sterling job keeping 21 babies engaged. They all had a fabulous fun time. I was also very impressed that Colette managed to remember all the children's name's as well. Would recommend Gymboree for parties and will definitely use you again in the future. Tania, mum of Elliot (August 2013)

Thanks to Gymboree for throwing a lovely first birthday party. Having the party run by such experts took loads of the pressure off, and we all really enjoyed it. Serine, mum of Gemma, (June 2013)

Thank you so much to the Gymboree Sevenoaks team for hosting our son, Kasten's, second birthday. He and his friends had a wonderful time and were thoroughly entertained! Thanks again! Francisca, mum of Kasten (January 2013)

Thank you so much for organising a brilliant 2nd birthday party for Tommy and Martin in early January. They both loved it as did their friends. Jessica and Colette were their usual enthusiastic selves and worked tirelessly to make the event a success. What impressed me most is how effortlessly they managed to get all the children to join in and have a great time - both those who had previously been to Gymboree and those who had not. The birthday kids were made to feel very special, and their favourite activities and party theme were reflected in the setup. Putting the preparation of the event in the capable hands of the Gymboree team made organising the party a breeze. We had lots of compliments from other parents and would certainly consider having another Gymboree party in the future. Thank you again. Barbara, mum of Thomas & Martin (January 2013)

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jessica for yesterday, she did a fantastic job, the kids had a great time. Steph, mum of Freddie (September 2012)

Thanks so much for giving the kids such an amazing time at the party on Saturday! All our guests were raving about how good you were, so you might have some referrals soon when other birthdays come around! Carrie, mum of Elsie (September 2012)

Parking

Sibling Policy Amendment

Please note that following feedback from members, we have made a minor adjustment to our sibling policy. The full policy can be found below:

OLDER SIBLINGS

Older siblings are welcome to come to their younger brother or sister’s class as….

An Observer: Children may sit in the waiting area watching, or with games/activities to keep them occupied

A Helper: If you feel your child will not tolerate sitting throughout the class, they may be allowed in as a helper during parachute time. The main rule is no climbing; keep feet on the ground, and this is solely at your teacher’s discretion. Please do not feel offended if we ask your child to sit at the side of the class, our priority is with the children actually enrolled so as not to hinder their Gymboree experience.

A Participant: If your older child falls under the 5 year maximum age limit, why not bring both children along to a Families class? The Families classes are specifically designed for a mixture of ages and encourage siblings to play together. We have various time slots throughout the week you can book into (must be booked ahead of schedule) and you can book them as:

A make-up class

If your enrolled child has classes to make-up, your older child is welcome to use these at a Families class. Please note that you must book ahead of schedule and this is limited to 3 times in a 3 month period.

As a Pay-As-You-Go class*

You can pay per Families class for siblings of an enrolled member at £10 per session. Please note that you must book ahead of schedule and this is limited to 3 times in a 3 month period.

A Fun Pass class*

We are extending our Fun Pass scheme to include siblings. A Fun Pass is a card of 5 classes which can be used within a 3 month period at a cost of £50 (£10 per class). For siblings of enrolled members, we are offering 20% off of the price of the pass (£40), and extending the expiry to 6 months. If you feel you may like to bring your older child along to classes more than 3 times in a 3 month period, this may be the solution for you.

*If you want to take advantage of the Pay-As-You-Go or Fun Pass systems, you must have paid a membership fee for both children. Please speak to a staff member for prices.

 

YOUNGER SIBLINGS

Younger siblings are welcome to come to their older brother or sister’s class as….

An Observer: Small babies may watch the class from a car seat or bouncy chair positioned off of the play mats, or carried by you in a sling or papoose. You MUST, be able to focus on your older child and have your arms free in order to keep them safe whilst playing. Pre-mobile babies may be allowed to join in with parachute time (at your teacher’s discretion), but it is your responsibility to keep your child safe from older children moving around the parachute.

A Participant: Once your younger child is mobile, we cannot allow them to join in with parachute time for safety reasons, so perhaps you might like to look into enrolling them into their own class, or enrol both children in a Families class so they can play together? We offer a 20% discount on 2 siblings enrolled at the same time (not necessarily in the same class), so please speak to us to see if we can find something suitable for you.
