Gymboree has really gone down in the past 5-6 years. I used to take my oldest and the classes were fun and the staff was nice. Then when I took my middle child the classes were not as good and the staff not as interested. Even the trainers needed to use crib sheets to know what songs to sing in the class! If you do do a Gymboree class and/or birthday party this is the best one in the area, however. The birthday parties are better, only you can only bring cake and juice, no food, and you can only have a certain number of kids (20) which limits the party often.
