My Grandson loves Gymboree

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

Thomas's parents work, so Grandpa and Grammie (that's me) care for him every day during the week. We talked with his parents about his need to interact with other children, and we do take him to story time at the library, but he needed even more interaction - he is a very hands on baby boy. We checked out Gymboree on-line and inquired with other parents and found Gymboree Play & Music to be highly recommended for their structure, organization and cleanliness. We brought our son to check it out as well, and we signed him up. At 9 months he was already trying to walk - pulling himself up on everything, so it was suggested by staff that we enroll him in the 10-month old class and we could not be happier with the program. Each week, Thomas learns something new and he takes home the new skills and tries them around the house. He especially enjoys climbing - he now climbs through, under and over everything. He goes right under furniture to retrieve roll away toys and he is not at all frightened. With grandpa or I spotting him very closely, he climbs the stairs to the upper level of our home. His favorite part of the class is bubble time. He loves chasing and popping the bubbles. While he was a little shy his first week, by week 4 he is shrieking with excitement when we pull up in front of Gymboree. His parents agree that he is getting the exercise and association with other babies his own age. We take him to open gym as often as we are able and he loves socializing with his newly found friends.
