Why Gymboree Classes?

We are the experts in early childhood development

Parents often tell us “You are the only class that manages to engage my child.” This is not a coincidence! It is a reflection of the fact that we are the experts in early childhood development. As such, we know what works, what engages, and what is appropriate for the many different developmental stages between birth and age 5. Gymboree Play & Music has published its own best-selling books on “learning through play” and develops its class curriculum with the involvement and input of experts from around the world.

We actively involve parents and carers in our classes

Gymboree Play & Music classes are recognised for our unique approach to parent/carer involvement which encourages understanding of all class activities. Research has shown that young children learn best – and have the most fun – when parents and carers enter their world of play and imagination. At Gymboree Play & Music, every adult is an active participant and play partner, making your time at Gymboree Play & Music all the more fun and enjoyable.

We are world leaders with over 40 yrs of experience

Gymboree Play & Music began in 1976 when Joan Barnes, a mother from California, tried to find a safe, fun place featuring age-appropriate activities for parents and young children to play together. Unable to do so, she did what any enterprising person would – she started her own! Gymboree Play & Music has been proudly inspiring parents and children ever since. Today, with classes in over 700 locations in over 40 countries, Gymboree Play & Music is the global leader in early childhood development programmes. Why settle for less?

Above all, our customers love what we do!

We were finalists in the Most Loved Baby Activity and the Most Loved Sport or Physical Activity at the What’s On 4 Kids Awards 2020. These were decided by parent votes so we’re super excited to have done so well! Have a look at recent customer feedback from Reviews.co.uk for more reasons to choose Gymboree Play & Music.
