  • 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.”

The MLU will have 4 birthing rooms each with ensuite facilities, a family snug, kitchenette, dining room, 1 therapy room and a triage assessment room.

And…it’s been an AMAZING summer; with our baby/toddler parties, MushUp event and sock sales, raising a total of over £450 and, of course, the The Wolf Run in September, we have now raised a combined total of over £1,100 and counting. #Woop!

That’s right, this year we’re celebrating Gymbo’s 40th birthday, which means that Gymboree have successfully been leading the world with our unique, fun-packed, award-winning child development programme for 40 wonderful years!

Plus, we’re also celebrating our fabulous bubble’s, that are quite literally ‘the best bubbles in town!’ by running a mega Bubble-A-Thon on Saturday 2nd April at 11am @ The Family Tree Members Club in Leamington Spa.

Kicking off at 11am, they’ll be music, instruments, props, balls, toys and continuous bubbles for a whopping 45 minutes!!

All of this in the aid of raising money, along with Nikki Francis of Mum Knows Best Warwickshire, to buy some much needed chairs that fold out into beds. These will be donated to Warwick hospital post-natal ward so that fathers can provide essential overnight support after labour and hopefully reduce the chances of post-natal depression in new mothers.

For all further info just CLICK HERE.

Do something special on 2nd April and come and join in the FUN!

****Great news**** Huge congratulations to everyone involved and all who came…WE DID IT!

There is also a clearly marked pedestrianised walkway leading you to and from the buggy shelter, to ensure safety for our members when walking through the car park.

What people are saying… 

***** ‘Of all of the baby/toddler classes we’ve tried over the last 2.5 years… Gymboree is our favourite, without a doubt! I now take both of my little ones (aged 2.5 & 1) and they are both totally mesmerised and we sing the songs at home all week!’

***** ‘I’m so glad I attended this music class today with Anabella, she had so much fun and couldn’t get enough of the bubbles, I feel this class is important for her development and in a different league to all the others! I as a parent even found myself having fun and mingling with the others!! Can’t wait to come back! Thanks Gymboree!’

***** My son Linc didn’t like any baby class until Gymboree! It seemed to have the right amount of stimulus. The first time we went was the free tester session and we. Haven’t looked back since. He is 2 in June and stilling getting as much from the class as he did when he was tiny. I couldn’t recommend you guys enough. In fact I encourage my friends and clients of mine with little people give it a go. Kelsey and Natalie are the perfect team and know how to interact with every individual child. Even down to remembering names to saying hi to Linc and asking how his weekend has been each time (even though he can’t talk) it’s the little things that count. Oh and not forgetting the stickers at the end ???. Going to Gymboree every week is so lovely – also other patents (mommys and/or daddy’s) reflect the family feel to what you have both created. I just wanted to say thanks! See you tomorrow ??Libby and Linc!’

 ***** ‘Gymboree is definitely my little boy’s (and my!) favourite class. Each week we have loads of fun exploring different sounds, rhythms and instruments. Kelsey is fantastic, amazingly enthusiastic and captures the attention of all the babies (and mums!), drawing them in to each week’s musical adventure. The class has even passed the ‘Dad test’, with Daddy very much enjoying the session he attended. Oh, and easily the best bubbles in town!’

***** ‘My mother in law came along last week and thinks Kelsey is exceptional and the best baby music teachers she’s seen (she’s a retired early years teacher) x’

***** ‘Gymboree is the best class we’ve done by far….and I’ve done a few with 4 children! Kelsey is amazing with the babies, the look on their faces each week is just amazing, he has them all mesmerised.’

***** ‘Gymboree is the best class we’ve done by far….and I’ve done a few with 4 children! Kelsey is amazing with the babies, the look on their faces each week is just amazing, he has them all mesmerised. He is so energetic and eccentric and obviously loves his job. We look forward to every class. You can just imagine Kelsey having his own TVs programme on CBeebies. It would be a hit.’

***** ‘Kelsey and the team and Gymboree Leamington are fantabulous!! My little boy and I tried lots of classes before becoming members here and this is by far and away the best class, best value and environment of them all. We love it. Were about to move house 35 mins away but were keeping our membership as we love it so much. There are different themes every two weeks which keeps it interesting and the accoustics in the room are amazing which seems to enthrawl all of the babies without exception!!’

***** ‘We have been visiting Gymbo for well over a year now. Lottie loves it and it is one of the highlights of our week. Gymboree has been so valuable in building on Lottie’s confidence, climbing, coordination, problem solving and interpersonal skills. It is a brilliant class to help with so many development aspects and it is FUN for both little ones as well as parents. Kelsey, Natalie and Amie are true professionals have created a warm atmosphere of learning and trust.’

***** ‘My Son and his group of friends just love Gymboree with Kelsey, Natalie and Amie at the Leamington branch. As he gets older the lessons develop with him and he is always learning whilst having fun at the same time. I also love the fact that every couple of weeks the layout changes round so it’s always different and interesting. I would definitely recommend.’

***** ‘Absolutely fantastic class for active little ones. Engaging and purposeful activities balanced perfectly with allowing the babies to explore the equipment in their own time. The class instructors are super friendly and very high energy. Definitely worth every penny!’
