I decided to join Gymboree Play & Music when a friend of mine recommended it to me for my son. It was the best decision I made. My son was just 9 months when he started, and it was exactly what he needed. It was wonderful to work on all his motor skills and begin to learn structure and follow directions. I also then enrolled him in the music class, which was so much fun and he learned even more structure, which was very important because he is extremely active. This type of learning helped me so much at home, and any other places we went to. As he grew older, he went on to be in the Schools Skills class, which is perfect to introduce all those needed development milestones to go to pre-school, such as working alone, working with others, switching to different activities, following directions, etc.
I also had another baby in the process and I too enrolled her in the Play & Learn class at 10 months, she too learned to develop her motor skills and follow directions. I then got her into the Art Class, which she absolutely adored. She had so much fun doing all the arts and crafts stuff, which helped her develop her fine motor skills. I will continue to keep her up through Schools Skills, because I could see how well my son did.
I have now been a part of Gymboree for over 3 years and I am constantly recommending Gymboree to anyone who has or is having a baby. It is great time for bonding, learning, and development. All the things they have learned have helped shape them in positive ways as they grow. The staff is also very caring, patient, and really do their best for our children. Even the ones waiting while their sibling gets out of class. I could not be happier with their service.
Class Type: Play & Learn
