A Place to Belong

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

When my son was three months old we moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Lewisville, Texas. I had never been to Texas before and since I was going to be a stay at home mom I was looking for a place to take my son where he could be around other kids his age and I could make friends. We started going to Gymboree Play & Learn when he was 4 months old and now he is 8 months old and has been going to Gymboree for half of his life! First and foremost Gymboree is a place where my son has the opportunity to see/play with other children, explore different textures and colors, and it is a place where I can feel completely safe letting him crawl around and explore. He loves parachute time, and Gymboree was the first place that he ever saw bubbles (we now own lots of Gymboree bubbles)! And he loves seeing Gymbo (when he was younger he wanted to eat him, but now he loves playing with the one we bought). It has been amazing to see the confidence he has attained by going to a place where I know he feels safe to crawl to the middle of the circle, go through tunnels (so excited when he did that!) and play with other children. But what has been most valuable to the both of us about finding the Lewisville, Texas Gymboree Play & Learn is finding a place where we feel like we belong. When I walk in the doors I love that the staff know my son by name and that I can sit and talk with them for 30 minutes after class without even realizing it! In a state where I knew no one Gymboree has been a place that I looked forward to going to every week!

I've seen and heard in person how important Gymboree is to them. When they moved to Lewisville, they were excited and grateful to have a fun, safe place to enjoy, meet people, and teach Mason many new things.
