I have tried several of the classes at the local Gymboree Play and Music with my daughter. I found the employees to be very fun and friendly, and they allowed my daughter to do things at her own pace. The art class was great because they activities were things that the young children could do on their own, and they tied in a lesson to each craft. As an example, one class used triangles in each of the activities to teach the triangle shape. I found the gym class to be a great way for my daughter to exercise and try new things that we may not be able to do at home, and the music class allowed her to experiment with different instruments and dance.
