I love love love the Fullerton Gymboree. I chose to drive my 5 month old son and I to this location vs. closer locations because of the positive reviews on Yelp and I am so glad I did. Ms. Alexis is an excellent teacher. My son adored her. I only stopped attending because I will begin work soon but I plan to return the next time I am on break. Great place and amazing teacher.

Sherii from the Reno Store is #1

Mommy Classes, Mommy and Baby Classes, Mom Groups, Kids Fitness Fun, Meet Other Parents, Toddler Classes, Toddler PlayI have been meaning to write in for sometime now, so here we go! I just had my 4th child and have taken all of my kids to Gymboree Play & Music. While I have enjoyed all of my teachers at Gymboree, I have to send in rave reviews about our teacher here in Reno, Nevada. She is simply AMAZING! I have been in her play classes for the last year and have thought over and over how wonderful she was, it's time to let you know. She is always so up-beat and happy. The Play & Learn classes are so well planned and thought out, and my child loves to be there. She is so patient and kind to all the kids and parents alike and seems to just love her job. She really does deserve a "Teacher of the Year" award for her spunk, knowledge, and patience in all that she does. She really gives it her all each day in a job that can be very tiring. She is just the best! Thank you Sherii from the Reno Store. We love you!

Positive Experience!

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

Hello, I have been taking my kids to Gymboree for 3 years now. I started off taking my oldest when he was 8 months old and when we had our 2nd child we started him at the same age. I must say we have always had a positive experience when coming to Gymboree Play & Music and always recommend Gymboree to our friends. Recently we took our son youngest to Music classes because he had been showing a lot of interest in music at home. We LOVED the class. Ms. Michelle was our instructor and she was AMAZING! She is very energetic, interactive and overall I think the kids really respond well to her. I even had a lot of fun in the class:) I feel awful that I didn't send this review sooner:( Michelle has been a teacher for both my oldest and youngest children and they both love her. I don't know if these surveys ever get back to the employee themselves but I would like her manager to know that over the last 3+ years we have been coming to Gymboree play classes, we truly enjoy being a part of Michelle's classes. And even though we are a little bit closer to your other location in Vegas we always return to this one because the kids enjoy Michelle so much:)

Big Fan

Tuesday, December 13, 2011 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

I wanted to write a review because we have had such a positive experience at our Gymboree Play & Music in Old Orchard. Our teacher, Erin, is a real credit to the whole Gymboree brand. She single-handedly transforms that room into a happy, spirited, joyful place with her energy, cheerful attitude, and warm smile. She gives the sense that she loves what she's doing and that what we are doing there with our kids is important work. She is a natural in this field of work. The baby activities she leads are developmentally appropriate and fun. I regularly recommend Gymboree to friends; I'm a big fan of the place. Thank you!

The long awaited return

Monday, August 29, 2011 by Gymbo Buzz Blog Contest

My 1st daughter Bella and I joined Gymboree Play & Music back in April of 2009 when she was 2 months old. We were only able to attend 2 classes because Bella was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 1 which is a neurological condition that weakens the muscles rapidly causing complete paralysis. Its the #1 genetic killer of children and infants passed onto the innocent child unknowingly by both sets of parents being carriers of the recessive gene. Continuing the Gymboree classes would have been too hard for me as her mother to watch her fall behind as the others bloomed ahead. I wanted to focus more on what she could still do rather then everything she would never accomplish. Bella passed away at only 9 months old and I was left with such an empty place in my arms, heart, and soul. I LOVED how much she enjoyed her Play & Music classes and till this day still watch the videos we have of her in class. I knew if I ever had another baby I would definitely join the classes again.
Through the grace of God, divine intervention, and the miracle of my life we had our 100% healthy baby girl, Bianca Isabella, who is better known as Baby Bee! I signed up for Gymboree Play & Music right away knowing full well that Bee would love it and what can I say, Mama knows best! Bee loves class so much! The music enlightens her, the other children amaze her, and all the wonderful toys, songs, and games lift her spirits while doing double duty and educating her! It brings me such joy as a grieving mother to see my healthy baby interacting with other precious babies. These classes have done wonders for our bonding and self awareness as well as Bee's strength, eye coordination, and milestones (evident by the reviews we get from her pediatrician!). But they have also been my secret recipe for healing my grief in a positive, fun, and new way. These classes were a win/win for the entire family and I recommend them to every new or even experienced Mama! Thank you Gymboree for offering such a simple but well thought out system of bonding, play time, and education for children of all ages! We are proud to be a part of the Gymboree Family again!!

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!

Art Class at Gymboree in Chicago!

Wednesday, December 1, 2010 by Gymboree Play & Music Family and Friends

My daughter Ashley lovesArt Classes in Chicago, Chicago Art Classes, Toddler Art Classes Chicago, Kids Art Classes Chicago, Art Activities Chicago, Chicao Art Places to paint, draw and color. After her first toddler Art class in Chicago, she has been bouncing off the walls to go back and do more. I am learning great creative kids activities to do at home with her to help her development through play. After getting Gymboree feedback and Gymboree reviews from other parents in my area, I knew I had to check out these toddler classes. So far it's been a wonderful experience and we look forward to class every week.

There’s Meaning in Mess - Let your child explore with paint. It sounds easy enough, but for many parents, it’s hard to let go and allow for mess. The mess factor involved when young children create is important and can reveal a lot. Messes can teach parents about children’s emotions and can be used as a bridge for communication.  Often times, the mess children make results from their excitement as they engross themselves in the art activity. It’s also possible that mess making is an indirect sign of frustration or unhappiness. By allowing your child to freely explore art and observing the methods she uses in the process, you can gain useful information for opening the doors to communication. Comment on how she applies the paint or on the pace at which she colors, and expand on her reactions – and eventually her words.  You can minimize the “mess stress” you feel by ensuring your child has plenty of room to move. Cover work areas with newspaper and make available wipes or towels. Provide child-appropriate utensils like chunky paintbrushes, shallow paint containers and large sheets of paper that support your child’s physical capabilities. There are also “ready for mess” art programs you can enroll in, like the Gymboree Arts program, that provide a developmentally appropriate place for you and your child to explore art together.

An Amazing Teacher!!!!!

He loves his play classes there, and I wanted to see why. I am a retired principal of a National School of Excellence. I observed a marvelous teacher there named Chloe, and wrote about her ability to work with each child in a loving and sensitive way. Having observed hundreds of outstanding teachers, I was truly surprised to see a STAR instructor at my grandson's Gymboree playgroup.
