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!
