We went to our first Gymboree class on Monday (4/1/13). My son Nicholas is 16 months old and is home with me everyday. He is such a shy little boy and does not trust anyone except for me and his father. Miss Kristen introduced herself to us outside the class and her personality instantly was a big hit to my son. I could see in his actions that he trusted her. He went into the class and we sat to learn the lesson and off he went. He went to every activity possible and played with the other children. I was so emotional when Miss Kristen encouraged him to climb up the matt and push the ball down and almost had tears in my eyes when he allowed her to push him down the slide and pull him back up. It was a breakthrough that I never thought would come within minutes of the class with total strangers! He participated in all of the activities and at the end of class while we were signing up I literally had to carry him out of class...typically he is pulling me out of classes. We have tried different baby/toddler classes before but nothing has had the affect on my son and myself like Gymboree. We are so happy that we found such a great outlet to let my son fully grow into a confident little boy.
Class Type: Play & Learn 4 (16-22 months)
