Our Play-osophy

Gymboree Play & Music’s mission is to discover the POWER OF PLAY to prepare children for a lifetime of learning. Our custom curriculum is uniquely created around three key elements of early childhood development: Social/Emotional, Cognitive, and Physical.

Gymboree Play & Music is the global leader in early child development programmes for 2 months-5 year olds, programmes that have been fostering creativity and confidence for over 40 years.

Your Play Experts

The Gymboree Play & Music programme is designed by child development specialists.
We know that the relationships and experiences children have in the early years of life have a profound impact on their future. 80% of the brain’s neural connections have been made by the age of three.

Our programmes are designed for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to learn through play. Parents and caregivers provide a vital role in our programmes: adult-child interactive play is essential for nurturing a child’s development. Our programme focuses on building children’s skills and self-esteem, helping them to grow to be confident, happy, and successful learners.

Child Development
At Gymboree Play & Music, we encourage exploration and self-expression through activities where children learn to conquer new challenges and reach developmental milestones. The best learning happens through play! Play is essential to brain development and a child’s social, cognitive, and physical growth.

At Gymboree Play & Music, we create a sense of community not only for children, but also for their caregivers. Through relationships, children discover the world around them. Building and strengthening personal connections provides as opportunity for children to develop social skills. Our classes provide an inviting space for everyone to feel comfortable and safe.
