Although Gymboree is famous for its programming for younger children, our programming for older children is challenging and encourages them to reach their highest potential. At the age of 4, children are already doing many things on their own: such as– getting dressed, washing their face and hands, eating, cleaning their rooms and so on.
4 year olds love playing with their friends and often take turns acting as a leader and as a follower. As a result, they begin to gain the important social skills they will need at school and in the future. They sometimes pull pranks, get carried away, or use bad words. However, if you let them know that what they did was wrong, they will understand. Making a game out of following the rules and gaining knowledge will enable children of this age to learn in a fun environment.
At Gymboree, we offer 4 year olds the non-judgmental and relaxed setting they need to encourage their cognitive, social and moral development. We offer the following programs for this age group: (All classes are parent optional.)
