I think Gymboree is one of the best activities I do with my daughter. We have been going for a couple of months (since she was about 10 months and could crawl) and it’s a great place for her to move, climb and expend some energy! The staff are fantastic, Sophie and Cat at the Tunbridge Wells branch are very welcoming, smiley and very good with the children. In the classes there is a new activity every 5 minutes or so; it definitely keeps the kids occupied!

My daughter and I go to Gymboree Tunbridge Wells. It is literally our favourite class - such a perfect combination of physical play, sensory activities and music/singing.
The team at Tunbridge Wells are always so welcoming, friendly and super helpful, couldn't rate them highly enough.

We have been attending Gymboree in Tunbridge Wells for around 4 months and it is a highlight of our week! Sophie and Cat are fantastic and my son adores them. The facilities are fantastic and my son's gross motor skills have really progressed through having a safe space to explore and practice movement. I'm shortly returning to work but we'll be carrying on our classes for the foreseeable future!

My son has been going to gymboree since he was 4 weeks old. He is now 5 months and enjoys going every Friday and I also enjoying taking him. Being a new mum, I found it hard on what to do with my baby but the gymboree family have shown me different ways to keep my little one entertained and also for him to learn new things and help his development. The teachers at Tunbridge Wells are always friendly and welcoming and we have never had an issues. We have have had to cancel a few classes before and it's never been a problem to reschedule for the Monday session. The 45 minute class is also the right amount of time for his age and there is so much for him to do and explore. Would highly recommend to any new mums!

We love going to Gymboree, Most of all our daughter Annabelle. Since we started going to class Annabelle has improved in so many ways & with each class became more confident, even with her only being 18 months its almost like she knows when shes on here way to gymbo as she begins to either run away or jump out of her pram as she gets closer. The frequent changes to the set up really helps and makes it more interesting.

All the Gymbo team are just great and have always done there best to accommodate our needs. I myself would like to give a shout out to Cat in the Tunbridge wells group who has seen Annabelle go from strength to strength in our Saturday class, always being supportive to us. You are all like the Pied piper of the gymbo world once you pick up your box of tricks all the children have to follow. :)

Only thing to mention besides from the great that i have already said is: Classes are always better when the children have more room to run around so i feel like less is more in this case. On only 2 occasions has this happened but i feel like the maximum children aloud plus adults could be reduced. Please don't take this a negative :)

Thank you to all the Gymbo team for joining our family on a journey of discovery and helping Annabelle to progress :)

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.
