UPDATE: Further to Boris’ announcement on 23rd June, we are still waiting for a date to open.  No Gymboree Play & Music sites will open on the 4th July and we will provide further information about opening as soon as we can.

We hope you and your families have been keeping well during these difficult times. At Gymboree Play & Music, we are obviously concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and have been watching the Government and industry guidance closely. For over 43 years, we have been providing world class programmes for children, and your continued trust in our brand is a priority. As such, following current Government guidelines, we are working on opening some of our sites from 4th July 2020, however this is subject to change.

We have upgraded our cleaning procedures in all of our locations beyond our already stringent practices. We ask you to help us by:

  • washing you and your little ones’ hands before and after class
  • staying home if sick or not feeling well
  • monitoring anything that has been placed in your child’s mouth
  • respecting social distancing
  • wearing a face covering during class (adults only)

Further to these increased hygiene policies, we’re also changing our teaching activities;

  • we’ve removed some props from the classroom
  • instrument exploration, tactile table, play dough and other direct contact activities have been removed
  • we are spraying down our crayons with alcohol
  • no Gymbo kisses or Gymbo stamps.

While we can’t eliminate all potential exposures, we can keep our sites clean and limit your exposure while enjoying our classes. Our families have trusted us for decades for our cleaning standards and excellent programming and we are continuing this legacy of trust.

We want to make sure that your children have a proper allotted time for physical, emotional and cognitive growth all year round, and as such we have a flexible make up policy so please can we ask that you only attend class when you and your children are healthy.

At Gymboree Play & Music, we want our families to STAY HEALTHY and PLAY HEALTHY now and throughout the year!

Please do get in touch with your local branch to discuss their re-opening plans and reserve a space in their classes.
