Party Reviews

  • We had our daughters 2nd birthday party here and it was excellent! Both the staff running the event were great, friendly and really helpful and created an excellent atmosphere. Team were fantastic leading the party, the kids and adults really had fun. They had also clearly put a lot of effort into preparing it as well. I would highly recommend this place.

  • Come along to Playday 2019!

    Come along to Playday 2019!25. July 2019

    On Wednesday 7th August it’s Playday, the UK’s national day celebrating play, and this year’s theme is Play Builds Children.  At Gymboree Play & Music we know all about the benefits of play, for over 40 years we have been sparking a love of learning with millions of families around the world, with research-based play programmes designed by experts. 

    Play is critical to your child’s brain development, as well as their social and physical growth. That’s why our play programs are researched, tested and expertly executed.  

    Furthermore, our custom, innovative equipment is designed for your little one to try, learn, play, fall, and try again! We reconfigure our modular proprietary playscapes every two weeks, consistently creating new experiences and challenges. Your child is always learning in a ridiculously fun, incredibly inviting and super safe environment because of our ever-changing environment and challenging activities!

    To celebrate Playday 2019 we’re going back to the 90’s and creating our very own Gymboree Play & Music’s Fun House!  We’ll be running special Playday events with loads of music you recognise from the 90s and lots of fun play. We’d love it if your little ones (and you?!) come dressed as your favourite 90’s idol. Think Spice Girls, Telly Tubbies, Mr Motivator, Take That… above all, anything goes! 

    Get in touch with your local branch to find out more.

  • Piccolo’s new look and new launches!

    Piccolo’s new look and new launches!28. May 2019

    Continuing their mission of making 100% organic, balanced and nutritious food inspired by the Mediterranean, Piccolo’s new products are designed with busy families in mind.

    The stylish new pouch packaging design launching this month accentuates the ingredients within and clearly communicates the brand’s ethos of helping families enjoy life’s adventures to the full. The ingredients, dietary information and nutritionals are even more clearly labelled and the new packs are the first UK baby food to include a QR code, linking through to more detailed information on the Piccolo website – so parents can find out exactly where those delicious, organic ingredients come from.

    But that’s not all; Piccolo are also launching several new ranges – including a new cooking at home range featuring stock cubes and stir-in sauces, specially developed for little ones. They are low in sugar and salt, and the stir in sauces are one of your babys’ 5 a day; meaning one less thing to worry about.

    That’s not all – there’s also snacks – Piccolo’s new snacking range includes Italian inspired breadsticks and tasty teething wafer Squares handily packed in on-the-go packets.  

    Cat Gazzoli, founder of Piccolo says: “At Piccolo we are always looking at new ways to help families enjoy nutritious meals and snacks without the worry or hassle. Our new pouch meals, healthy snacks and cooking range aim to take away the stress of finding food that’s delicious and convenient for cooking at home or when you are on the go – leaving you with more time for what really matters.”

    “With balance and variety absolutely key to babies’ health and development, we’re excited to offer growing families an even wider range of ingredients, flavours and textures for their little ones to try developed by our in house infant nutritional therapist Alice Fotheringham.”

Puddle Ducks West Kent & East Sussex

Here at Gymboree Play & Music Tunbridge Wells, we are delighted to partner with Clive, Lindsay and their team at Puddle Ducks. Our businesses are both about nurturing and developing little ones in a safe, clean and healthy environment. Research has shown that young children learn best – and have the most fun – when parents and carers enter their world of play and imagination – whether that be learning how to climb, problem solve and use their imaginations on land or learning safety in the water. Both our classes rely on parent’s/carer’s interaction with their little ones to get the best results which is a great chance to not only bond with your little one, but also to get the chance to make some new friends along the way. It is because of this synergy and shared passion for teaching key social, life and communication skills to very young children that we have decided to work together and offer all of Puddle Duck’s local customers who do not already play with us a special introductory offer so that you can judge for yourselves.

The Offer : If you decide to join our Gymboree Play and Music family on the day of your free trial class. You will benefit from our exclusive ‘no joining fee’ offer and still receive our Gymboree membership pack. Just quote ‘Puddle Ducks’ when you fill the trial request form 

This special offer is valid for ANY Sensory Baby and Play and Learn class run by Gymboree Play and Music Tunbridge Wells (subject to availability).
