Thank You Gymboree!

All the teachers at this location are amazing! Chris, Judy and Teana are extremely enthusiastic and energetic and make class so much fun for my son. At every class, the teacher always takes the time to work individually with my son who has a delay in gross motor skill development. I'd also like to recognize Chris for her kindness during Hurricane Sandy. She provided an extended Open Gym time and allowed us to bring siblings and waived the sibling fees. On top of that, she even offered use of her computer to my friend who was having an internet issue! I've spread the word to all my friends because this is the type of place that deserves to be around for a long time!

Highly Recommend

I would HIGHLY recommend Mary Beth's Play & Learn 1 class at the Glen Ellyn Gymboree Play & Music. She is so knowledgeable about infant development / early childhood education, genuine, sympathetic, energetic, fun, and a downright sweethart who LOVES babies and all children. I appreciate that she is patient with my 10-week-old son who isn't always the most engaged student in class. Also, I have to comment that she really impressed me when I had started crying in class and she immediately stopped the class, and gave me a hug along with many consoling, heartfelt words. So touched. Henry and I will enjoy Gymboree until he's ready for school!

Thank You!

I want to give a big thank you from the bottom of my heart to the staff at the Gymboree in Monroe, NJ who opened their doors this past Saturday and Sunday to those of us still without electricity, heat and in my case running water due to a well in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. They gave us a warm place where we could talk and joke with others and allowed the kids to play in a safe environment. You can never imagine how much it meant to us parents to feel somewhat human again and give us a bit of a moral boost under such depressing circumstances. Thank you Gymboree Play & Music in Monroe, NJ you truly did a wonderful thing!

Through the years

I never though that I would be back at Gymboree, 7 years later with my miracle baby but I am. I also have a 7 year old that was a Gymbo Boy. That is how I first met Michelle and Denise. My son started when he was an infant and continued till he attended school. Now I am back with my daughter. I called to inquire about class two weeks after she was born. Michelle and Denise said that they did not have a class at this time but would see what they could do. 4 weeks later-Level one infant. Wow, how the time flies, my daughter is now one and we are already in level three. Gymbo, Mrs. Jenn, Michelle, and Denise have become our extended family. Gymboree Melbourne is a great place.

Learning, Playing, & Memory-Making!

familyWhen I was little, my mom would take me to Gymboree and now I am able to continue that tradition with my son. My husband and I have been taking our son Jude to Gymboree since he was 2 months old. We began in Play & Learn 1 and now that Jude is 17 months old, we are in Play & Learn 4. We also enjoy the Art and Music classes. Gymboree Play & Music has been a great place to make friends and create memories. We've watched our son grow and develop. From barely being able to get through "tummy time" without crying to excitedly running around the Gymboree play floor and climbing all over the obstacle courses! From silently observing as Mommy and Daddy would sing songs and play games with him to talking and laughing as he plays under the parachute and dances with Gymbo! From being startled by new and unfamiliar sounds in Music class to excitedly banging on the drum and eager to play with all the instruments in the music box! From shyly straying away from the finger paints in Art class to eagerly picking up the brush and creating his own beautiful (and messy!) works of art! Our teachers - Miss Julie (Levels 2, 3, 4 & Art), Miss Lindsay (Level 1 & Music), Miss Jen (Level 4 & Open Gym), and Miss Jessica (Levels 2 & 3) - have gone above and beyond to make Gymboree a special place for us. They're always excited to see Jude and ask what's new with him. Gymboree has become a special place for our entire family. There are some days when just Mommy goes with Jude, other days when just Daddy goes, and other days when we get to go as a whole family. We've even brought Jude's grandparents, aunts, and uncles along to experience the fun and share in making memories. Gymboree has provided our family with resources that we wouldn't otherwise have to help make learning, playing, and growing as fun and special as it is as Gymboree. We're excited to continue making memories with Gymboree!

I took my daughter to her first class this week and was shocked by home much she loved it! I was impressed with the teacher and the activites. The clown was by far her favorite part.

Rolling Over!!

My Daughter, Anayah, started Gymboree Play & Music since she was 2 months old. She learned to roll over at Gymboree. She wanted to see her favorite clown Gymbo and to reach it she finally turned over when she was 4 months at the Level I Play and Learn Class. She loves Gymboree even today as she is 2 and a half years old. That just shows one that there are a lot of things to do for a child and not get bored at Gymboree and the staff is awesome at the Melbourne, FL Gymboree.

Always look forward to our Gymboree Play & Learn class with Miss. Nycole! My 16 month old Mikayla loves her time working on the concept of the week and bubble/parachute time. All of the songs we sing are so catchy-- I end up singing them all day :-)

Development!!

I've been coming to Gymboree Play & Learn 1 for a few months now and can only say that I just love the program! Our teach, Ms. Debbie, is wonderful with all of the little ones and you can just tell that she just loves teaching our class!

We love Gymboree

We have been a Gymboree family for the last two years. I started with my daughter when she was 8 weeks old. It was not only great for her, but also for me. I was able to get out of the house and meet new moms and make new friends. I now have a son too and we are continuing the Gymboree tradition with him as well. His favorite activity in Level Two is baby soccer. The staff at our Melbourne Gymboree is fantastic. They are warm, loving, and tons of fun. They have created an atmosphere that makes us excited to go to every week!

Baby Classes, Toddler Classes, Classes for Kids, Classes for Babies, Classes for Toddlers, Infant Play, Baby Play GroupWe enrolled my son Daniel in Gymboree when he was 3 months old. He is now almost 2 and still loves attending. The teachers at the Melbourne, FL location are amazing. They are all so sweet and Daniel just loves seeing them! We attend the regular class as well as the music and art classes and they have all been great. We celebrated Daniel's first birthday with a Gymboree birthday party that was perfect! I can not say enough good things about about the teachers and the classes at our location. Enrolling him was one of the best decisions we have made for our son so far.

Growing and learning with Gymboree

My daughter is now 15 months old and has enjoyed Gymboree Play & Music since she was 6 weeks old. When I think back to when she first started it amazes me with how much she has learned and grown. She's gone from watching the "bumpy ball" pass by to now climbing obstacle courses to get it. We have loved the Gymboree experience and it keeps getting better the more she learns and grows. Thank you Gymboree!!

Perfect Outlet

Shane looks forward to time @ Gymboree - whether it's class time orGymboree Play & Music open gym. He could be in a cranky mood waking up from a nap in his car seat, but when he realizes he's in Gymboree's parking lot, his mood instantly changes and he's all smiles! We used to be enrolled in Miss Amber's Sat morning class, but are now currently enrolled in Miss Steph's Sun morning class. They are always so upbeat and friendly every time we see them. They make it a point to recognize all the children and not single any one out so that they all feel special. I love that the ladies always wait a few minutes to start class - this is clutch because moms always run on their kids' schedules. I don't feel bad being a few minutes late because I know I have that extra buffer time @ the start of class. As for the content of the class, it is always something useful and relevant to the age of the kids in that class. Last week, we focused on rocking and all the kids seemed to enjoy it. These are easy exercises that parents can practice @ home as well. Shane's favorite activity is still the time we spend on the parachute - catching bubbles and singing songs. I love this part of class and it never gets old! It is one of the few times that Shane just sits still and is attentive to the songs and movement. I try to get Shane out of the house whenever I can especially on the weekends when I don't have work. Gymboree Play & Music is the perfect outlet - I don't know what I would do without it! It is a time I look forward to spending fun times w/ my son that I will cherish always. Thanks, Gymboree!! :)

John Loves Gymbo!!

We have been members of Gymboree for about two months now and joined Play & Learn 2 when my son John was 7 months. He and I absolutely love it! I am an elementary teacher and providing my son with positive interactions with other baby peers is something that is very important to me. Gymboree is the perfect place for that! The songs, activities, equipment an instruction are all so fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate. All of the instructors have been wonderful but Shane (Scarsdale location) is especially fantastic. He makes it a point to greet each and every baby personally in the class and is an incredibly engaging and enthusiastic instructor. My son fixates on him and smiles constantly while Shane sings and runs activities. Shane always explains the activities and how they help develop motor skills. He is very knowledgeable and also very funny. My son also really enjoys Erinn (Scarsdale). She is a new member of the staff there but you would never know it. She is very kind and gentle but also very engaging. She knew John's name after meeting him only once and greets him as soon as we walk through the door. John especially loves the song "Gymbo the clown goes up and down." Bubble time is definitely a favorite and baby soccer always makes him laugh. When we first joined he would become a bit scared when going under the parachute but now he loves that, too! It has been wonderful to watch him become more comfortable and independent. He has a few buddies that he loves to interact with like J.J., Nico, and Julian. I also love having the time with other mommies! We have been having a wonderful experience there and look forward to watching John grow with his other baby friends!

Rahzy's Milestones

At four moGymboreenths old, my son Rahzy was having difficulty with tummy time. He would hang his head to the left and he did not have much control of his neck. A lot of the tummy times ended with him crying and fussing. We spoke to his Pediatrician about this issue and she wanted to refer him to an Orthopaedic Specialist and Physical Therapist. I knew that we could work with Rahzy in the meantime before we went to either of the specialists. That's when we started to bring him to Gymboree. He had a hard time on his tummy at first, but as we kept coming to classes, he started to improve. He seemed to do okay using a towel roll and as he did this, he would look around at the other babies while they were doing tummy time too. Talk about some positive peer pressure! As the weeks went by, I saw a dramatic improvement! He loves being on his tummy now and he no longer needs the towel roll. Rahzy has even started to roll over from his tummy to his back! I am so proud of my little guy! I don't think we'll need to take him to the Orthopaedic or Physical therapist anytime soon! All I can say is Thank you Gymboree! You helped Rahzy make some major milestones!

Prithvi with Gymbo

Prithvi started going to Gymboree Play & Learn classes when he tGymboree Play & Musicurned four and a half months old . The first day was overwhelming for both him and me. "What in the world can you make these infants do ", I thought. But, it was fascinating how some of the activities really got these angels excited. The room is truely filled with what I say "over doze of sweetness". And I found out a few things that attracted Prithvi . Of all the activities he gradually started liking the bubbles , the rainbow over the babies, but one became special to him. It was Gymbo the clown. The teachers made the moms wear it as a hand puppet and bring it closer to the babies so they could touch it, lick it and play with it . Prithvi always likes to grab him with both hands as if telling him "never leave me please". Then we move Gymbo infront of their faces and suddenly hide it behind our backs. As I take Gymbo away, there comes a frown on prithvi's face and then a little cry. Well, Gymbo comes back saying peek a boo ,and so does the big smile on my baby's face . He screams in excitement , reaches for it to grab it, but Gymbo hides again. It's funny but every time I hide Gymbo , Prithvi cries and every time I bring it back Prithvi becomes happy . Prithvi is now six months old and he loves Gymbo dearly. Thank you Gybmo, you are my baby's best friend.

Gymbo was there when needed the most

Alexa started Gymboree classes when she was 8 weeks old. We were about to move to Switzerland, just had our first baby, our family (both sides) live in Mexico city, and my husband was travelling a lot. I felt isolated, depressed and scared, so I look for something to do with a two month old (not easy) and found Gymboree Play & Music. What a blessing! Miss Mary Beth was an angel that came into our lives. Not only I was looking forward to meet all the wonderful mommies in the class, but also my baby was reaching her milestones very fast due to the lots of stimulation received. She loved Gymbo, the bubbles, the parachute and I loved Mary Beth who even offered me to take care of Alexa for a couple of hours while we went to the movies. I almost cried our last day when Mary Beth sang " Congratulations on level 1 graduation Alexa" then she blew bubbles and one of them landed on my baby's nose and stayed there for a long time!

Meeting new friends

Gymboree Play & MusicI'm really happy that my husband and I decided to enroll our 8-month-old daughter, Eloise, into Gymboree Play & Music. I am a stay-at-home mom and I think she gets bored sometimes with our usual play time on her mat, and I can only take her to the park so many times in a day! She loves going to Gymboree for the classes and for open gym time. She has met many new friends in the few times we've been, and it's great for her to be able to interact with babies of all ages. She seems fascinated by older babies that are able to walk. I think she is inspired by them sometimes too, because she'll often repeat movements that she sees when we get home.
