Established in 1976, Gymboree Play & Music operates in over 40 countries. It was founded by a Californian mother, Joan Barnes, who wanted to be able to play with her children in a safe, age-appropriate environment. ‘Then as now, the key elements of the philosophy are that parents stay and get involved and that children best learn new skills when they’re having fun,’ explains Aaron.
‘We’re delighted that all the children have returned for the new academic year. Our approach is to challenge and inspire students, give them personal attention and make learning enjoyable.’
