Play & Music Gymboree for 6 months to 5 Year Olds

Thursday 22nd July at 10am

It’s time to get your little one moving, grooving and playing with our interactive class. Let’s use some of your little one’s energy and imagination in this teacher led, parent facilitated virtual multi-sensory play and music class. This class is designed to support parents with their babies, toddlers & pre-schoolers as we will sing, move and play in our themed class. Experience music from all around the world- music from both past and present, near and far!

Music play also helps activate the parts of the brain responsible for language development.

A list of readily available household items that can be used in class will be sent out in advance with suggestions on how to improvise yourself.
