Play & Learn Classes
Gymboree Play and Music classes are uniquely and intentionally designed for early childhood development. Through play, your child is challenged physically, socially and cognitively, building crucial skills to support a lifetime of learning.
Our expert play leaders support you through 45 minutes of uninterrupted time to play, explore, and learn. Our custom designed curriculum challenges your child as they grow, with changing playscapes and themes every three weeks.
You'll learn a variety of ways to play with your newest little bundle of joy. Non-mobile babies are exposed to sensory play, songs, and the beginnings of social play.
Meet like-minded parents while our expert teachers lead you through nurturing exercises and activities that stimulate your baby's brain development. The first stepping stone to sparking a love of learning!
We boogie down with our babies, get up and dance, give them baby massages, sing them songs, and explore new physical challenges every week through teacher-led activities on the equipment.
Explore tummy time from a new perspective or on a new texture, slide down slides on soft lambskins, or take a ride in a gentle swing! Play as a group and socialize with others! Sing songs, learn a routine, and PLAY!
We'll explore new physical challenges every week through teacher-led activities, with a focus on different ways to use each piece of our equipment.
Crawl through tunnels, explore different textures, slide down slides (or climb up slides!), toddle over bridges, or take a ride in a swing!! We�ll also practice social skills and memory building through sing-alongs and group-play.
It's all about opposites: loud and quiet, fast and slow, up and down! Contrasting "themes" help your child learn better ways to communicate. We move across the bridge sllowwwly and then fast!
They'll learn how to control body movements and use their body to navigate and problem solve across monkey bars, giant cushions, and through little tunnels. We'll also practice repetition and routine with regular parachute and bubble activities. Soon your little one will be leading the Gymbo Dance!
Play both independently and with peers while learning to connect ideas through cooperation and communication.
