Gymboree is an educational school which focuses on early childhood education. The first Gymboree early childhood center was established in California in 1976, and has since spread to 37 countries and regions. Today there are nearly more than 700 early childhood centers. In China, early education in China has immensely developed, and Gymboree has more than 200 early childhood centers in China alone.
Gymboree focuses on child development, independent thinking and creative learning. By singing songs, playing with other children, learning arts and crafts, dancing, music lessons and much more, Gymboree has become an extremely popular place for parents to take their children to learn, develop and become more social.
Living in a big city such as Tianjin, this social aspect can become difficult as it is not easy to find others to set-up play-dates or arrange a time where you child can be let free to express themselves in a safe and secure environment. Gymboree have many centers throughout Tianjin some of which are better and bigger than others, and I’d highly recommend looking around at different centers first, and speaking with the actual teachers of class in person.
All teachers teach in English (songs, instructions) etc.. If you’re looking for a place to take your child to enhance their learning ability and to have more social interaction with other children, then Gymboree could be a good choice for you.
