Emma and the team at Gymboree are great. We've been going for a year now and progressed through levels 1-4 and Zach has loved it. Would highly recommend.

We love Gymboree, my son looks forward to it every week and enjoys going to open play sessions in between. He's an active boy so it's nice to have somewhere that he can run, climb and have fun.

Fantastic! My son loves coming to his weekly class. Alicia who runs the class is great with he kids and always runs a fun and interesting class. The site and equipment is always clean and safe to use and every member of staff is friendly and accommodating. Couldn't rate them any higher!

I have only been going for about two months with my grandson of 9 months. He enjoys the session and has plenty of good opportunities for physical, sensory and social experiences. It is well structured and very well resourced. Our session leader is charismatic so engages the babies very well. I like the songs that are included and how everyone is made to feel comfort able. Expensive but worth it.

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.
