I love, love, love our Tuesday morning (11:15 am) Gymboree class in Arlington, MA. My one-year old participates in a class taught by Maddie. As a mother of her own 14 1/2 year-old, I feel that Maddie is uniquely positioned to teach the 10-16 month age group. My son loves her, and it's obvious that the other babies do as well. She starts every class by explaining the developmental milestones of our age group, then explaining what the focus of the class will be. It doesn't hurt that she has a great singing voice as well! I love that every class is different, and that the Gymboree Play & Music is set up in a new way each week. My son has grown substantially because of this class. He used to be somewhat afraid of other babies, but Maddie and the Gymboree curriculum have opened up his world. I, too, have benefited from the class; meeting other moms has been amazing, and we've planned playdates outside of Gymboree. I have no doubt that we will continue to take play classes at Gymboree, and I plan to sign up for the art classes when my son is a bit older.
Class Type: Play & Learn
