  • Benefits of our Equipment

    22. January 2021
    Benefits graphic

    We are often asked why our classes are special. Parents want to know how they differ from other play classes.  They want to know all about the benefits of our equipment!

    Gymboree Play & Music classes utilise a unique and impressive combination of music, movement, props, and imaginary play, but it’s our custom-designed and patented equipment, which is unique to us, that creates a fun and magical world where children learn, thrive and most importantly have fun.  This equipment has evolved over the years and you’ll see it in all its forms in Gymboree Play & Music centres around the world.

    This proprietary equipment was designed by Jay Beckwith, an internationally respected playground designer with more than 40 years of experience. He created every structure with the needs of children in mind. Our play environments are designed to deliver the high-quality standard parents expect for their children.  It’s this equipment which delivers a unique experience for our members with social, cognitive, and physical benefits for your little ones built in.

    In the coming days we’re going to start a series about the benefits of our unique equipment.  Each day we’ll focus on a different piece and show you what’s so special about it, and how it benefits your child during play.

    We’ll cover all the familiar Gymboree Play & Music apparatus:

    • Airlog
    • Cushion
    • Handle Ball
    • Short Slide
    • Rainbow Barrel
    • Wavy Slide
    • Slide ‘n’ Climb
    • Tubee

    For those of you who are already members, you’ll recognise most of these, and no doubt you and your little ones have a favourite!

    If you’d like more information about Gymboree Play & Music classes just contact your local centre.

  • Gymbo @ Home Again!

    19. January 2021

    Now that we’re back into another national Lockdown we’re planning Gymbo @ Home again on our national Facebook page!

    Gymbo @ Home is short live-action or pre-recorded classes delivered to you online in the comfort and safety of your own home.  Gymboree Play & Music classes bring a unique combination of music, movement, props, and imaginary play, all to create a fun and magical world where children learn, thrive and most importantly have fun.

     

    We have 3 free 30 minutes sessions planned for you so far:Gymbo on a sledge in the snow

     

    So jump over to Facebook, click ‘going’, and put them on your calendar!

    We’ve shared some cool ideas for fun activities you can do with your little ones around the winter theme for the first event.  Why not have a go at making penguin bottles?!

    You can also enter our competition to win some wonderful Bubble Ooodles by getting involved with our hysterical game of hide and seek with Steph during Gymbo’s Winter Party.  Join in live to find out more.

    After the event you can still watch again, along with all our previous Gymbo @ Home sessions, via our Facebook page.

     

    Some of our centres are running regular Gymbo @ Home sessions via private Facebook groups so get in touch with your local centre to find out more.

    It’s Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 11th December so get your Christmas jumpers ready!

    If you’re coming to class on Friday please put your Christmas jumpers on and help us to raise money for Save the Children.  You don’t even need to go out and buy one if you don’t have one already, just put an old onechristmas jumper promotion on and decorate it with stickers, tinsel, tin foil, or anything sparkly.  This is about more than just wearing silly jumpers, it’s about seeing the world as little ones see it and making it way better.  So have fun dressing up and decorating your jumper, we can’t wait to see you in class!

    We have some templates for penguin, snowman, and robin decorations to help you get started!

    Save the Children do amazing work to transform the futures of children in the UK and around the world.  They make sure children are kept safe, healthy and learning, and change the future for good.

    We’d really appreciate your support to make Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day a success – it’s a great cause, so together at Gymboree Play & Music, we’ll be helping to create a brighter future for children, we can make the world better in our sparkly, silly sweaters!

    You can donate £2 by texting TEAMGYMBO to 70050, or via our Just Giving page.

    And don’t forget to tag us @gymboreeclassesuk and @savechildrenuk and #ChristmasJumperDay in your pix on social media so we can see your sparkly skills!

  • 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,
