Fantastic from start to finish, Paul was wonderful with all the kids, made the whole day stress free and everybody remarked upon how lovely everything was. Highly recommended and worth every penny!

Warm, friendly staff who are always full of energy and very welcoming. The classes are a great mixture of new elements and familiar songs and routines to keep children entertained. Open gym sessions are also great for letting children roam around in a safe space. Highly recommend!

A huge thank you to everyone who helped organise my little ones first birthday party including Aaron and especially Paul who was brilliant! She had the best time and everyone loved the activities planned and all the decorations. Paul led the most amazing party- we couldn't have asked for anything more! It was the best way to celebrate and was so well planned. We will be booking again!

Thank you so much Gymboree Chiswick for the best children’s party experience we’ve ever had! You were so creative and fun and great at galvanising the group. Everybody wrote me after and told me they loved the art activity. It was a huge success and we are so happy our little gal had a great day!! Aaron and Paul won't let you down!

We had our daughters third birthday party at Gymboree Chiswick on Saturday. Paul who ran the class was creative, patient and dealt brilliantly with 11 incredibly excited toddlers, creating a Unicorn-themed wonderland for our little one. Thank you so much Aaron, Paul and team.

We have extremely stringent procedures in place to keep our venue as safe as possible for everyone.

What is your make-up policy?

If you notify us of an absence in advance of your registered class, then you will receive a make-up class in its place, which you can use to book any age-appropriate session within two months of your absence.

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.
