I love Gymboree, from the moment you walkBaby Class, Baby Fitness, Baby Learning, Bbay Play, Child Activity Center, Child Development Training, Child Education Center through the door. This is the time when my child can exlpore another friendly environment and be comfortable. When he gets there, he runs around, laughing, smiling and dancing nonstop. His teacher Mrs. Sue is an awesome instructor and very energetic. I love all the songs we sing, our favorite song is " Welcome Welcome everyone now your here let's have some fun." I sing this song during meal times with my 13 month old, when he gets off task and it brings him back to the task. He claps and laughs everytime. He is also a huge fan of the bubbles and parachute time. We will continue to be apart of Gymboree Play & Music because it's a great experience for my toddler, especially since I'm a stay at home mom. Terrific early learning curriculum. Thank Mrs. Laurie and Mrs. Sue for making the program so welcoming and exciting!

As a parent and an early childhood educator, I cannot say enough about wonderful things about Gymboree Play and Music, their programming, and teaching staff. The facility is always immaculate. I arrive in white socks, play for an hour, and leave in white socks! The curriculum is age-appropriate, stimulating, and fun for my son while it also gives me ideas for new ways to interact and new toddler activities to try at home. The teaching staff are knowledgeable in developmentally appropriate practices and very caring. They have taken a genuine interest in my son and have patiently encouraged him to try new experiences and "come out of his shell."

The Play & Learn 1 (0-6 month) class was perfect for her! Her favorite parts were parachute and bubble time. We have since graduated to the Play & Learn 2 (6-10 month) class. We were so excited to find out that we still do parachute and bubble time, she loves it!!! She loves this new class, because she gets to explore all the fun equipment. This really helps her because she is JUST learning how to crawl. It's so amazing seeing her try new things in class. The teachers all know Alli and love watching how she learns and grows each class. I love it when we go to class, as we approach the front door, she gets all excited and starts wiggling in her stroller. I know she's ready for a good time!! Thanks Gymboree for making Fridays our favorite day of the week!!

She is simply AMAZING! She has an energetic personality that is inviting to the children, a terrific voice and is very eager to help them to engage and participate! Also I would like to say that this Gymboree Play & Music location is always very clean! The staff is observed frequently wiping up and mopping between classes~which is a bonus now during flu season!

My daughter has been Gymboree Play & Learn 5, Play Classes, Kid Classes, Toddler Fun, Toddler Play, Learning & Growing, Child Play Groupcoming to Gymboree classes for a few months now and has recently moved up to Play & Learn 5. We have a Gymboree update: She just crawled through the smallest tunnel on the play floor today for the first time! I have tried to lure her through many tunnels with a ball,  although I had not persuaded her to crawl through the tunnel with these tactics. Today, she did it! We loves the teachers at Gymboree in Greenwood, IN and we thank them for these fun play classes and early learning curriculum!

Class Type: Play & Learn 5
City: Greenwood

Through theme-related activities, Gymbore supports the child that is beginning to pretend, and supplies you with ideas for how to engage in pretend play which involves you in the learning process. Not only can a Gymboree slide and tunnel set-up provide large motor activity in your child's mind, it can become a submarine "under the sea" to crawl through or a "monkey island" at the zoo to climb on.

Gymboree Play & Music, Gymboree Play Classes, Gymboree San Francisco, Gymboree LA, Gymboree Play & Music LA, LA Kids Classes, LA Toddler Classes, Baby Classes in LA, Toddler Classes in LA, Kids Classes in LAI have been coming to Gymboree for over two years now. I have not only formed an unbelievable bond with my son, but I have learned about activities for infants and activities for toddlers which I can do with him at home and with my future children. I am now pregnant with my second and I cannot wait to come with him/her to Gymboree and experience the magic which they provide. I began taking baby classes in San Francisco and have recently moved to Los Angeles due to my husbands job. I had a great transitional experience and was able to stay a member of this wonderful program. Gymboree has a great early learning curriculum program and if you are looking for classes for your baby or toddler this is the place for you!

It’s no coincidence that expressive language skills rapidly grow around the same time that pretend play begins to emerge—social and cognitive abilities do not develop independently; they are intertwined. The use of language supports and enhances imaginary play and vice versa. When a child pretends, she uses words to express feelings and ideas. As pretend play becomes more sophisticated, so do language skills.  When your child begins to pretend, engage him in conversation. If he hands you a ball and says, “it’s an apple,” ask him where he got it: From the store? An apple tree? Bring up relevant words and ideas to enhance the play: Let’s make an apple pie? What do we need to make pie dough? Expand on his words and see where he goes with it. It’s important to support pretend play because it encourages your child to use cognitive skills like problem solving (what ingredients do we need for an apple pie), and perspective taking (how does a baker make a pie). The ability to pretend develops on its own without your intervention. You can help take your child’s pretending to the next level.   At Gymboree Play & Music our classes incorporate imaginary play and is so important for your child's development.
