As a former elementary school teacher I understood how the development of children is extremely important. When I had my son, my degree of understanding changed. Here I was this new mom, thinking I had all this teaching experience and I said “I got this”. I was wrong. I took home this little person from the hospital and realized how much I had to learn. I needed help learning how to play with my own baby. I only knew so many nursery rhymes. This was a humbling experience. I showed up at Gymboree and the instructor starting singing right away. I loved every minute of it just as much as my son did. With Gymboree Play & Music I had a place to go play with my son and the support of experienced instructors. I went home with bubbles and shakers. My husband and I played “Parachute” with blankets. I watched with a swelled heart as my son met all his milestones and developed into this amazing, happy little person. Gymboree gave me exactly what I needed, a community of moms, fabulous instructors and the confidence to know that I am doing a wonderful job with my son. Having a baby changes everything, Gymboree has given me the support, information and assurance that all parents need. My son, Colin, is about to have his first birthday and I’m proud mom of a social and happy little boy. Thank you Gymboree for giving my son and I memorable and meaningful experiences!
