We held my son's 4th birthday at Gymboree Chiswick and we were incredibly happy with the day and all the planning and communication leading up to it. Gymboree provides the decorations and partyware which was a huge help. Aaron was wonderful to deal with and the 45 minutes of guided play were really great and kept all the children entertained. Well worth it!

Such a lovely experience for me and my little one. We used Gymboree for about a year and a half before we moved away from the area. The classes had great variety and my baby (now
Toddler) loved Gymbo the clown. We also had her first birthday there. The team were very attentive and directed the theme to her interests. Staff were wonderful and so good at interacting with my daughter.

My son and I had an amazing time with Chiswick Gymboree Play & Music UK.
It is an awesome place for babies and toddlers to unravel their potential, to socialise and to thrive.
A very big "Thank you" to the staff there that were always kind and affectionate with my baby.
It has been a pleasure

A big shout out to Aaron at Gymboree Chiswick for organising the most spectacular 'Frozen' 3rd Birthday bash for our daughter. She loved every minute from the moment she ran in and saw the entire room set up, to when we had to drag her out of the door at the end. Aaron did such a fabulous job engaging all the children with a Frozen-themed play session after having let the children explore the room for the first 30 minutes. The class was a mixture of singing, dancing, playing with instruments, dressing up, bubbles, parachute time and climbing the equipment. Everyone (including the adults who got involved in the snowball fight!) loved it. We then had a packed lunch and cake in the garden for the last 45 minutes, while the children continued to play both inside and outside. The time absolutely flew by, but it was equally a perfect amount of time for a 3rd Birthday party. Each guest went home merrily grasping their own balloon with big smiles on their faces. Aaron made the whole planning process so stress-free that we were also able to get involved and have fun. Thank you so much! We have been bringing our daughter to Gymboree since she was very young and she absolutely adores the classes and the teachers. We still have a lot of the artwork she has created on our fridge. Thank you for helping her gain confidence, artistic talent and improved mobility because of your variety of classes. I cannot recommend Gymboree and particularly Aaron enough, it really is a joy to attend.

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!

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.
