By the time a child has reached 3 years old, he/she learns how to handle misunderstandings with friends and how to communicate his/her feelings and beliefs to others. He/she enters a whole new type of relationship with parents and peers.
Children in this age group enjoy talking about where they went, what they saw and what they did with anyone who is willing to listen. Their sense of curiosity gradually increases and it is amazing how much they can grasp if they are put in a learning environment where they can focus on what they are interested in and learn at their own pace. Individual personalities come out at this age and we see children who can concentrate and sit and work on one project for an extended period of time and children who are more energetic and enjoy moving their bodies.
At Gymboree, 3 year olds can participate in a wide variety of programming, such as dance, English and after school. All of our programming for this age group is parent optional.
