Baby Classes Near Me

Gymboree Play & Music offer lots of fantastic classes for babies at our centres across the UK.  These include classes that incorporate sensory play, tummy time, music, signing, storytelling and imaginary play.  We also offer baby massage courses run by IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) qualified teachers, as well as the official Makaton Signing for Babies programme.

Global Leader

Most of our classes are 45 minutes long which is the perfect time to benefit sleep and appetite.  Your Gymboree Play & Music membership gives you one age-appropriate structured class per week, as well as access to Open Gym throughout the week.  Additionally, our centres also offer occasional special events for babies, for example Halloween, Easter and Christmas.

So, as the global leader in early development programmes, our classes help to develop the cognitive, physical and social skills of babies as they learn. They also provide you with the perfect opportunity to connect with like-minded families.

Development Milestones

Some of our classes are designed around your baby’s development milestones, for example crawling and walking, while others are for babies up to around one year old (Baby Massage, Baby Lab, Music, Makaton Signing,) and others are for any age up to 5 (family classes).

Award Winning Classes

Furthermore we were finalists in the Most Loved Baby Activity category in the What’s On 4 Kids Awards 2021, and have been nominated again in the 2022 Awards.

Reviews

Both of my children (3.5 years and 11 months) go to Gymboree Play & Music and love it. My toddler goes to their drop-off Lego class which she raves about. It's very creative, working not only on Lego skills but also painting, drawing etc. My infant son loves his Gymboree Play & Music Crawlers class - particularly loves crawling all over their props, through the tunnels, etc. Great way to get the infant crawling over obstacles! Gymboree Play & Music is part of our weekly schedule for both kids and we look forward to participating every week. Invaluable!

Gymboree Play & Music was a lovely and positive experience for my son Leo. We started when he was 9 months and he is now 3 years old, I wish we had started sooner.
He loves the songs (which is part of our daily singing at home), the freedom to explore and he was happy there. He looks forward to class every week and once class is over he will tell everyone about Gymbo and what he did.
For me, I liked that it taught him how to get down safely from a height, how to learn to use his body, and touching on different topics every 2 weeks. It gave me confidence in other environments to trust that he has the ability that he learned from Gymboree Play & Music and to trust him.

Absolutely amazing place! Especially Aaron from the Chiswick branch, always makes us feel very welcome there. He is extremely passionate and professional. His warmth and enthusiasm are precious. I would recommend that place to everyone! So happy we found it in our community. My son loves going there.
