Gymboree Review

gymboree1My son and daughter loved taking their classes last month so when we had the opportunity to do another month of classes we jumped at the chance. This time we decided to try out the 2 hour Art and Sports drop off class for my son. He will be starting pre school in a few weeks so we thought this would be a great way to help him transition to going to class without us.

gym micah (4 of 4)I wasn’t sure how he was going to do at the drop off class. He always has a wonderful time at Gymboree but he sometimes gets anxious about being places without us. The staff was wonderful and made him feel so comfortable. We had to ease him in the first time but within a few minutes he didn’t remember we were even there and we left without an issue. When we came back 2 hours later he didn’t want to leave!

Little Man was telling me all about soccer and teeth (which had been the topics for the day) and he kept asking me when he could go back to Gymboree. Throughout the next week he continued to use new words he had learned in class and was telling everyone we met (quite literally) about his love for Gymboree. His excitement for his Gymboree class continued to develop week by week! They did a unit on community helpers where they talked about dentists, mail carriers, contractors and other jobs that have a role in the community. Each week they completed art projects based around the job they were learning about. My son loved playing soccer and working on kicking the balls which is excellent for coordination. His favorite part was when they would huddle up, put their hands in and say, “Go team!” He even got us to do it at home a few times when we were working on family projects.

Selfishly it was nice to be able to run some errands and spend quality time one-on-one with my daughter while he was happily entertained, learning and getting his wiggles out at Gymboree.

I love the environment they foster at Gymboree and the opportunity it gives children to make new friends. As a former teacher I love giving my children opportunities to listen to and learn from other instructors and to work with children outside their family and their familiar social circle so that they will feel more comfortable when school starts.

The school year is only a few weeks away and Gymboree is a wonderful option for children 5 and under to learn, play and grow in a safe and child friendly environment.
