Growing up Gymbo

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

My daughter, Grace, was pretty shy, and I really didn't have a lot of friends with young children. From the time she was 7 months, we immersed ourselves in Gymboree Play & Music and I feel Grace learned sharing and creative play in a group setting there. I learned how to play differently with her. Even though we went through stages of favorites, I tried to keep her in as many classes as possible because her favorites routinely rotated. We previewed her preschool yesterday and her confidence is amazing- she talked the whole time to her teacher, and I believe the year of school skills helped prepare her for this next step. She's still shy, but being brave enough as a parent to surround kids with other children and adults offers one of the best life skills- being able to enjoy & interact with the world around us. Thank you!
