Hey everyone – a great program here in the Alpharetta area that you’ve probably already heard of is– Gymboree Play & Music. They offer classes in Play & Learn and Music and Art, for children from birth to five years. It’s a graduated program that changes and evolves as your child grows.
Gymboree Play & Music starts with Baby Lab for babies from birth to eight months – auditory, visual and tactile stimulation helps parents learn more about their newborns while making new friends when they’re needed most. The children progress through specific age levels, adding increasing physical challenges, music and eventually art.
Everything they do is directed toward the whole child – developing their physical, emotional and social skills using programming developed by their national team of experts at Gymboree, think tanks and academics. Every two weeks the class changes – including the configuration of the play environment! The switch keeps things fresh and offers new opportunities for imaginative play and discovery.
At around 28 months, children can try Preschool Steps, a “separation” class designed to help children navigate the sometimes difficult occasions when it’s time to go off to school or stay with a babysitter. Each family makes the transition as gradually as they need.
At about 30 months, the children graduate to a preschool program called School Skills and there will soon be a S.T.E.A.M. class called School Skills Labs. By now the children are so comfortable at Gymboree they’re eager to learn as much as possible. One of the more unique elements of School Skills is the Global Kids segment. Students travel to a different country every three weeks and learn all about the culture, language and landmarks.
Gymboree offers a comprehensive and diverse curriculum all under one roof. Music classes enhance child development through song, dance and instruments, Play & Learn classes encourage development from sensory exploration to playful problem solving and art classes inspire imagination and self-expression. There are many different membership options – from 1/x week to unlimited classes (these are a great deal) or you can even buy a pack of classes to use anytime.
