Gymboree Play & Music are staying at home this lockdown (in England)
There has been much speculation as to whether we can continue to operate our classes throughout this second ‘lockdown’, if we could fall into the Government Guidelines for either ‘support groups’ or ‘supervised activities for children.
Whilst we definitely support the families that come along to our classes, fundamentally we are not a ‘support group’. Although we do provide ‘supervised activities for children’, this is not so parents and carers can go to work. We feel these are the intentions of the guidance and therefore we don’t feel we fit in the exemptions.
The news that specific ‘support groups’ and ‘supervised activities for children’ are able to remain open is brilliant for the families who rely on such services. We are so happy to know that families will still be able to access them .
As business owners this is our livelihoods and we are completely devastated to close our doors again, we ask you to please continue to support your local centre in anyway that you can throughout this ‘lockdown’.
We will remain closed until the end of ‘lockdown‘ on 2nd December. We would love nothing more than to still be running our COVID-secure classes and seeing you, our Gymboree Play & Music families, but the instruction is to ‘stay home’ , and the safety of you, your little ones and our team will always come first.
As always thank you so much for all your amazing support. Stay safe everyone & hip hip hooray for another Gymboree day just 4 weeks away ✨
