We are the experts in early childhood development
At Gymboree we are often told by parents, “You are the only class that manages to engage my child.” This is not a coincidence! It is a reflection of the fact that Gymboree are the experts in early childhood development and as such, we know children; we know what works, what engages, and what is appropriate for the many different developmental stages between birth and age 5. Gymboree 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 classes are recognised for our unique approach to parent/carer involvement which encourages adult participation in and 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, every adult is an active participant and play partner, making your time at Gymboree all the more fun and enjoyable.
We are world leaders with over 33 years of experience
Gymboree 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 has been proudly inspiring parents and children ever since. Today, with classes in over 550 locations in 30 countries, Gymboree is the global leader in early childhood development programme's. Why settle for less?
