Best Birthday Teachers Ever

Monday, September 5, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

I recently went to a birthday party at Gymboree Play & Music and was left speechless of how amazing the party was. The area was clean, bright, and safe for all children. The party room was perfect for the kids to sit in and eat their cake.

My most favorite was the enthusiasm and dedication of the two staff members that hosted the party. Miss Jaidi and Miss Carina never once frowned or looked bothered or even lost their energetic demeanor. I was so impressed and so happy with them, especially Miss Jaidi, she should be set as an example to represent this company.

I live an hour away from this location but I would totally make the drive if ever there was another event hosted by these two individuals.

Gymbo says, "Happy Birthday Evan!"

Our Gymboree Play & Music teacher, Caterina, is amazing with our grandson and every other child/parent/caregiver in the class. She has boundless energy and wonderful insight into the needs of each child. She always greets us warmly and remembers little details that makes us feel welcome. She has a beautiful singing voice that encourages the children to sing along.

Our daughter had Gymboree Play & Music host our grandson's second birthday party at this location and I must say that Caterina made that day so special. Evan thought he was the king of the castle with games geared to his age group and his likes. I could see his confidence increase with each activity especially being the center of attention. Caterina was terrific with each of his guests and encouraged them to participate even though this was a new environment for them. I would highly recommend this birthday experience.

Evan has gained so many skills that have been fostered by his Gymboree Play & Music experience and especially under Caterina's guidance. She is a wonderful ambassador for your organization. We find her warm, sweet, caring, organized with energy that makes us better caregivers.

Huge Thanks to Ginger & Linda!

Wednesday, July 27, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

I had my son's 1st birthday party at Gymboree Play & Music in Plano, TX on Communications Parkway. This is the third time I have had a party there (2013, 2014 and now 2016).

The 2 instructors Ginger and Linda were absolutely AMAZING. Ginger and Linda did such a great job with making sure the party was perfect for my son and his friends. Everything mommy(myself) could have forgotten they made sure it wasn't forgotten.

I am just so pleased with how fun the party was and how helpful and just amazing both ladies were. I cannot express enough how much fun the kids and the adults had at his 1st birthday party. Just a huge thanks to Ginger and Linda....job well done! I greatly appreciate that I didn't have to worry about anything because they took care of everything.

My Daughter's First Birthday

Saturday, July 23, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

Mary Ellen and Tia were wonderful! I recently celebrated my daughter's first birthday at Gymboree Play & Music. They took GREAT care of us. Everyone (including the adults) enjoyed themselves so much. Thank you for making the day stress free and memorable!!!

Third Birthday Party Fun

Wednesday, July 20, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We signed up for a free class for my two boys and we had Jared as our teacher. He was great and was just so nice that we decided to have our son's third birthday party a couple weeks later! We were so happy when we walked into Gymboree Play & Music the day of the party and saw Jared was going to be the one hosting! He did an awesome job and all our little guests had so much fun!! I will definitely recommend this place to others especially since it's so clean too!

Amazing for Classes & Birthday Parties!

Noel is an amazing teacher. I've been to the Gymboree Play & Music Hermosa location as a guest and for birthday parties and it blows other little gyms away.

Growing Up Gymboree!

Monday, June 13, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

Nearly twenty-five years ago on the dot, my mom not only brought me to my first Level 2 class, but also started working for Gymboree Play & Music in Houston.

While I don't quite remember attending class as a baby, the home videos show me walking for the first time with my chubby legs, adoring my teachers, smiling non-stop and having fun at my Gymboree birthday parties.

I do remember my first teenage job at Gymboree as a Birthday Party Assistant on the weekends. I've had the opportunity to work here on-and-off over some summers and have reveled in every minute of it.

There's no place like Gymboree, and I'm assured my life is a bit more magical and bright because I've grown up with it! I can't wait to bring my future kiddos with my mom by my side of course.

Happy Birthday at the Fremont Hub

Friday, June 10, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We went to a birthday party and the Gymboree Play & Music staffer was Heather, at the Fremont Hub location earlier this year.

I wanted to write this review because Heather was so great with a big group of toddlers. And, for a special effort when my son lost his party favor balloon in the parking lot. Heather welcomed us back into the store despite it being pretty late and I think she needed to get home, and she not only gave my son a new balloon but also offered him hugs and a minute to sit down and collect himself before leaving again. It was so nice and made his night (and mine :).

That kind of extra effort is not so easy to find these days and I congratulate Gymboree for having such caring staff at your Fremont Hub location.

Thank you! Julie and William :)

Cutest Birthday Party Ever

Wednesday, June 8, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We just had my son's 2nd birthday party at Gymboree Play & Music. We aren't members and had never been to a party there, but I took a chance because I loved the space and the concept. It was beyond perfect and the majority of that had to do with the incredible staff.

Allison & Nicole helped set-up everything and did a great job with the kids. They helped us organize and completely cleaned so we could spend more time with our son. The party room was made so cute and was pretty much set-up by the time we arrived. I must admit I'm meticulous about party details and not being able to get in and set up until 15 minutes before the party worried me, but the staff could not have been more helpful.

We're still talking about how incredible they are. Super cute party, well done and so fun for our boy and his friends.

Happy 2nd Birthday

Tuesday, June 7, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We celebrated our 2 year old's birthday here at the Katy Gymboree Play & Music. It was such a fantastic experience. Our little girl and all of our guests LOVED it!

Our birthday teacher was Julie and she was so awesome and extremely nice. She helped with every detail and made sure our party was a huge success.
The best part about having our party with Gymboree was being able to have the facility all to ourselves. It was nice not having to worry about sharing a space with another party or having older children run over the babies.

That hands down made it worth having our party with Gymboree.

A Wonderful Time

Tuesday, June 7, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We had a wonderful time at the Gymboree facility in Katy,TX. Our guests truly enjoyed it, and have stated they will have a party at Gymboree Play & Music. The teacher Julie was amazing. She helped set up our eating area while our hands were full with the little ones. She also catered to the younger and older toddlers by having lessons and games that accommodated all ages.

The party booking was very easy from start to finish. I was even able to get times and prices of your other locations to compare.

We had a really great time all around and couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate.


Tuesday, June 7, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We had our little one's 1st birthday party in Texas and it was such a blast. Our instructor was Julie and she was AMAZING!!! She was very helpful and our party was a huge success.

This wasn't our first time having a party with Gymboree Play & Music as we also held our 3 year old's party there also.

Each time has been easily booked, professionally ran, and an overall wonderful experience.

Jameson's 2nd birthday Post Oak Gymboree

Friday, June 3, 2016 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We decided that Gymboree Play & Music Post Oak was the best place to host our son's 2nd birthday.

What a fantastic decision that was!!!

Our birthday leader Danetta was so wonderful! She made sure every detail was taken care of and tailored all the activities around our star wars theme. She was lively, extremely pleasant, and made sure every child was included despite their age. She even handled the two that were a little bit sugar drunk and very wild with grace and professionalism.

We loved having Gymbo the Clown make an appearance. It really put that cherry on top of the already wonderful time we were having.
We had guests come in from out of town and everyone couldn't believe how well the party was ran. The adults had as much fun as the children.

Really how many children's birthday parties can you say that about?!

The facility is amazing and I would recommend Gymboree Play & Music Post Oak to any mom or dad looking for a place to take their little ones for classes or to host a birthday party.

Party & Play!

Great location for my daughter's second birthday party. The staff was attentive and very knowledgeable about working with the birthday girl and 15 of her friends (ages 3-7). They all had fun utilizing their creative sides with painting their treasure boxes and loved the "wheels on the bus" parachute. Thanks Gymboree Play & Music for the party and play!

Wonderful Gymboree Birthday

Monday, September 21, 2015 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

Our son was born 3 months early, and for a very long time the only place we took him was Gymboree, because of its sanitation/ sick policy. He loves music and has benefited from music classes and his gross motor skills have developed greatly because of the gym classes.
Because of our experience with Gymboree we chose to celebrate his birthday there at the Post Oak location.Everything was awesome. We loved Shannon. Shannon was very accommodating. We did find the birthday packet helpful, but did not use the enclosed map. Maybe we should have because one of our guests got lost and arrived late.
Thank you for offering us a place to belong.

Fabulous party with Morna

Monday, September 21, 2015 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We attended another birthday party at Gymboree Post Oak last October with Morna as the host. The level of professionalism and energy she exhibited made our decision to host our party with Gymboree an easy one. Morna as a host was absolutely fabulous! She reached out to us the week of the party and was available at any time for consultation and questions. She is an amazing teacher and leader. She achieves the perfect blend of structured activities with unstructured and skillfully and gracefully manages the attention of both small children (2-3 years) and adults. She worked our dinosaur theme into the party with ease and I have a feeling she can do anything! She is fantastic and I would tell anyone to have a party at Gymboree as long as she is the lead teacher.
Gymboree birthday parties are amazing and well-structured. There are many places in the Houston area that host children’s bday parties, and we have been to most of them, but none of them host a party with the same level of attention and engagement that is offered by Morna at Gymboree.
Parties at Gymboree don't feel like a party factory. Your party is the most important thing happening at that moment and that makes it so very special for the birthday child and the family.
Everything went exceedingly well and everyone was thrilled.

Princesses and Pirates Birthday Party

Friday, April 24, 2015 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

We chose Gymboree Play & Music for our daughter Hannah's 3rd birthday party quite simply because ever since she started classes at six months old, she has loved every minute there! There was nowhere else she wanted to have her party and of course the fact that there was no clean up at the house was a bonus for me!!

She had quite simply the best day ever!!! She and her friends loved every minute. I want to say a huge thank you to the Gymboree Play & Music teachers Miss Anna, Miss Carol G and Miss Mercedes at the Palmetto Bay location for all their help and hard work, because without them this would not have been the success it was. They were amazing in helping me to set up the room and ensuring I hadn't forgotten anything. Most of all their enthusiasm was what made the event so special and made sure that everyone - even the parents! - had a blast!

Thank you Gymboree Play & Music!!!!

We have had our two children at Gymboree Riverstone since the were 5 months old. They are 3 and 1 years old now. We have celebrated both first bdays there. Since 2011, we have enjoyed every single level and many friendly teachers. Last December, we celebrated my youngest son first bday at Gymboree Riverstone and it was super fun! We had Miss Jeralyn and Miss Rose, and they both were very warm with all the guests. We also had live Gymbo which was a happy addition to the party. We love Gymboree Riverstone!! They are enthusiastic and kind people. Two thumbs up!! ;-)
