Franchise Information

Gymboree Play & Music is the global leader in early childhood development programs. Our original, standardized programming is currently being offered at locations in North America, South America, Europe and Asia and we are continuing to expand annually.

We are the master franchisees for Japan and we hope to expand throughout Japan by sub-franchising to qualified individuals around the country. Please refer to our Japanese site for detailed franchise information and franchisee requirements.


※Given the difficult Japanese business environment, we strongly suggest that at least one member of the franchisee team speaks, reads and writes Japanese.

We are currently taking applications from qualified individuals and teams who are interested in owning and operating their own Gymboree Play & Music site in Japan. If this is an opportunity that interests you, please contact us. Please feel free to contact us in English with specific questions.
