I brought my 2.5 year old to Gymboree Play & Music in Forest Hills. We are only in New York for a short period and I needed something to keep my toddler occupied and challenged. The Art class was fantastic! The teacher Shawn from Australia was just so amazing!! My son loved the class and I know it is because Shawn was so wonderful!! His enthusiasm was unprecedented and we all enjoyed this lovely Art class that had the most animated storytelling ever! Also big thanks to Madeline the manager who couldn't have been nicer and more welcoming!! Madeline you are the best!! Thanks so much :)

I've been bringing my daughter to Gymboree classes since March 2010. She was just 6 months old then. Miss Michele was our teacher for our very first Play & Learn 2 class. Since then we have continued to enroll in 2-3 classes per semester, primarily because of & to be with this fabulous teacher! Not only is Miss Michele wonderful with the babies and toddlers, but she's equally as fabulous with the parents! She is always so happy and just oozes enthusiasm and dedication. My daughter is now almost 20 months old & enrolled in Miss Michele's Art classes. She LOVES it! She repeatedly asks me, when are we going to Art?! The time and consideration that Miss Michele puts into her lesson plans is evident every time we walk in the room. She knows how to make every child feel special. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have both Gymboree Play & Music and Miss Michele in our lives.

I started taking my daughter to Gymboree Play & Music when she was 19 months. Her first class was Art I. She learn many things there especially to sing and paint. She loves to color. After having her enroll in Art I for 2 months I decided It will be good if she tried Play & Learn. Currently she is enroll in Play & Learn Level 5. The instructor (Hannah) is great. My daughter loved the group activities and her favorite one is bubble time. I bought her the bubbles from Gymboree and we use it at home. She also loves the Gymbo song recently we bought her a Gymbo and she wants to take him everywhere. She likes all the activities and I think Gymboree is a good program for babies and toddlers.Class Type:

We love going to our preschool class at Gymboree Play and Music. We like the different types of classes offered, the flexible class schedule and the ability to do make-up classes.
All the teachers are very kind to the children and parents. Teachers give encouragement to the children, to build up self-esteem and confidence. My daughter has loved going to Vernon Hills Gymboree since she was 3 years old. My daughter loves her School Skills classes
and we also on occasion do Family Art
and Music as make up classes. I only wish I knew about Gymboree's play classes earlier when my daughter was younger (we heard about it from a friend when my daughter turned 3 years old); she would have started going there when she was a few months old. All the teachers are just like family; very warm, friendly and caring. We feel like we are at home when we go to Gymboree and we love Family Movie night. These classes offer the perfect preschool activities.

My son has always been a large fan of art, so we enrolled him in the Gymboree Art Classes
. However, we never knew how much he would love Erin and the art activities for toddlers. Class for him is not until noon, yet when he wakes up, he asks me, is it Monday? If the answer is yes, he gets his clothes and goes to the garage and gets into the car at about 8:30, informing me that he is ready to go to Gymboree Play and Music
Erin makes art classes fun! Everything from painting to coloring, playdoh and glue, she engages the kids and helps them to express themselves in a variety of different ways!
My son LOVES Erin, Gymboree Art classes, and looks forward to it every week!

Teacher Mykie is amazing - I'm not sure we would come to
Gymboree play classes if we didn't have her as a teacher. I have a background in child development as well as dance education and have been an arts/dance educator for over 12 years - so I bring my professional experience along whenever making a decision about which activities are worth while for my baby and which aren't valuable beyond social interaction with other children. Teacher Mykie gets all of the parents singing along with her - she engages the children - and she creates a safe space for parents to discus things as a group as well as feel comfortable to do so in small groups while the children are exploring. I don't feel like we are coming to a class where parents are judging each other or heatedly debating what is best when making parenting decisions; and for that I am grateful to her as a facilitator and leader. She is just the right amount of calm quiet and excited exuberance. Bravo Mykie!

We recently moved to the Brentwood, TN area and I signed my daughter up for the Art classes
at Gymboree. This quickly became the highlight of her week...getting to make "creations" with paint and other craft supplies while not messing up our house! Ms. Michelle is a fantastic teacher and the kids all love her. Due to our schedule, we had to switch to a Play & Learn classes
on a different day. I get so much joy watching my daughter and all of the other little ones having such a wonderful time...climbing, jumping, singing and dancing. Ms. Rachel is so happy and energetic. I love to watch the kids interact with her. Erin, the owner is great as well. Very well organized and knows all of the parents and children by name.
One of best things about Gymboree has been the friendships I've made. I've met several other moms and we now have weekly play dates outside of class. It has been such a blessing for us, being new to the area.
Thank you Gymboree!

Jai was 1 year and 5 months old when we first tried the Gymboree play classes
. We decided to enroll him since he was rarely exposed to other people. We've never seen him so delighted and overwhelmed! He became more active and we didn't mind that as all those things were new to him. He was always on the go at Gymboree. Eventually he got used to having kids around and started to participate in the toddler activities much more than before. He still gets excited and is active but Gymboree played a BIG role in his gross motor and socialization skills. We're looking forward to having more great experiences with him at his Gymboree Play & Learn classes
! For Jai and his little brother, Koji!

My little boy is turning 2 next month and I ha
d been looking for play classes and GYMBOREE
over exceeded my expectations!! I signed him up for the Art classes
and it was much more than that! The teacher was amazing! The class teaches sharing, creativity, patience, quiet time, shapes and much more! I'm hoping Gymboree will turn him into a little student because this is his first classroom experience! Fingers crossed but I'm sure I will not be disappointed!

We started Gymboree Play & Learn 3
when my daughter was 10 1/2 months old. She loved it! The toddler music, creative kids activities and terrific teacher captured her attention from the very beginning. I enjoyed meeting other parents
with children the same age as mine as well. I was so surprised to see how quickly she started to walk after we joined Gymboree. Within 2 weeks, just after she turned 11 months, she was walking. I know it was because she saw other children her age walking at Gymboree. Positive re-enforcement and the right program got her from cruising to walking!

State: IndianaWhen your child is a pre-walker or new walker they are so adorable and we love to watch those first wobbly steps. However the parents of that new walker understands how exhausting it is to have this new found skill. Most coffee tables have safety corners and and the minimalist look has come to the home with all art objects place away in the closet for another day. Bring your new toddler to Gymboree Play & Music and have them enjoy our safe and fun playscapes if only for forty five minutes. Our Open Gyms is another way to have that new toddler explore and our OpenGyms come with enrollment at Gymboree play & Music.

I LOVE School Skills
! I can't say that enough. I L-O-V-E, love it!
My 2 girls are 5 and 3 years old and I am a stay at home mom who believes strongly in pre-school homeschooling. I want to keep them with me as long as I can and allow them to learn and grow in a safe, loving environment. With this strong belief, I knew that Gymboree School Skills would be the best choice for my girls. School Skills allows my girls to be active and crazy, as kids should be in the first 15 minutes of class. But as soon as the rainbow rope gets put away, they know it is time to exercise self control and sit with the other class members to welcome everyone. School Skills teaches so many wonderful skills for school that I encourage at home. The teachers are so loving and nurturing and give my children the attention they deserve as well as gentle guidance away from negative behavior.
Science time is my 5 year olds favorite and they really take the time with her to encourage her curiosity through the preschool age activities, rather then rush the lesson and move on. I love picking them up from class and hearing my daughter describe in detail the science projects. She uses all new vocabulary just like the teachers do at Gymboree
My 3 year old is all about the art time. She really gets creative and does her own interpretation of the projects, and I appreciate the teachers allowing her to create as she sees fit and not discouraging her creativity. Our teachers at the Irvine Gymboree site
, Casha and Eleisa are just amazing and I adore them, almost as much as my girls do.

My son has been coming to Gymboree play classes
since he was 5 months. We just graduated to Play & Learn Level 6
and still loves it! When we were in Level 3 and 4, our bedtime routine had to include EVERYTHING we did in class from parachute time through the goodbye train song (yes, we would sit under the sheet and sing "who do we see under the parachute). Gymboree is such a major part of lives and we are still friends with families we met when we started with Play & Learn Level 1
