Gymboree Play & Music, the global leader in classes for kids for more than 30 years, recently announced the reopening of their newly renovated centre in Toronto.
“I’m excited to bring this wonderful program to our community,” said Elaine Pei, Director of Gymboree Play & Music Toronto. “From the moment they walk in the door, parents can see that we’ve evolved our one-of-a-kind environment to offer even more discovery. Children are free to move, and play safely, as they explore new play challenges. The new play equipment was custom-designed for young children by renowned Play Architect Jay Beckwith in collaboration with Gymboree’s early childhood play experts. Gymboree partnership with Mr. Beckwith has created a fresh new playscape that supports children to reach their potential with an emphasis on discovery and joy. It offers even more of the climbing, sliding and creative discovery you’ve come to love. Our classes have been developed to provide a range of age-appropriate challenges and skill building exercises, which create a personalized play experience for every child so they can participate and learn at his or her own pace.”
One of the most distinguishing features of Gymboree Play & Music, and a key philosophy on which it is based, is their unique approach to parent involvement, which encourages participation in and understanding of each child’s development. The reason is simple: children learn best when parents enter their world of play and imagination. Parental support is also important to a child’s healthy emotional development, building trust between parent and child and helping kids to feel more confident to explore and learn.
