Walkers (10-18 months)

Focus: Equipment

Where they are:
Just like that, your little one is walking! They might not be steady, but they’ve taken their first few steps. Now more than ever is the time to build those muscles, strengthen those legs and let your little one take off!

What to expect in class:
We’ll explore new physical challenges every week through teacher-led activities, with a focus on different ways to use each piece of our equipment. Crawl through tunnels, explore different textures, slide down or climb up slides, toddle over bridges or take a ride in a swing! We’ll also practice social skills and memory-building through sing-alongs and group play.

Challenging walkers to explore physical movements like climbing, crawling, and balancing supports healthy muscle and bone development.
Cognitive: Repetition, songs, and interacting with their familiar adult supports language, vocabulary, and memory development.
Social: Our playfloor environment supports little ones with building confidence and feeling more comfortable in unknown places.
Adults: Get quality time with your little one and give them the space they need to practice their new-found walking skills!

The story of Gymboree Play & Music began in 1976 when Joan Barnes couldn’t find a local, age-appropriate play group for herself and her young children. She did what any young entrepreneurial mother would do – she started her own programme!

More than forty-five years later, Gymboree Play & Music has grown from humble beginnings in a church basement to a global leader in early childhood education with more than 700 locations in 40 countries. Combining music, movement, props and specially designed equipment, imaginary play and more, our innovative programme prepares your little one for a lifetime of learning and can help to foster their confidence. We also aim to help parents and caregivers to discover the power of play.
