GYMBOREE Play & Music has been fostering creativity and confidence in children ages 0-5 for over 30 years.
Today there are over 550 locations in 30 countries, making it the global leader in early childhood development programs. Designed by experts, Gymboree’s age-appropriate activities help develop the cognitive, physical and social skills of children as they play. Its programs are also recognised for their unique approach to parent involvement—which encourages participation in and understanding of each child’s development.
“Gymboree is a wonderful interactive program. Parents and children will be delighted to spend time together building strong bonds that will last a lifetime,” says Harvey Karp Professor of Pediatrics at the UCLA School of Medicine and the author of The Happiest Baby on the Block.

Gymboree began in 1976 when Joan Barnes, a mother from Marin County, California, tried to find a safe, fun place featuring age-appropriate activities for parents and young children to play together. Unable to do so, she did what any enterprising person would; she started her own program! We’ve been proudly inspiring parents and children ever since.
