The Research Supporting the GymbaROO Program

The supporting documentation is now vast and undeniable. Mounting empirical evidence now supports the underlying concepts upon which GymbaROO was founded. Neuro-scientific studies confirm that the experiences a child has in the earliest years of life are critical for brain development and for laying down the foundations for all future learning. It is during this time that much of the essential wiring linked to learning is laid down.

How well children behave, read and learn at school is directly related to the kinds of stimulation they experienced in the years before school. As a result, these formative years shape a child’s future health, happiness, development, learning ability and achievement at school.

In Australia, year after year passes with NAPLAN scores flat lining, or declining, despite the Government spending billions on education. GymbaROO kids on the other hand are excelling, not only academically but also on the sporting field, emotionally and in leadership roles. School teachers are describing those who have been through the GymbaROO program as having higher levels of concentration, better behaviour and being generally more socially mature and physically capable than their peers.

Alongside the latest neurodevelopment research, the results of recent studies have major implications for teaching strategies in educational and childcare establishments and for the development and learning potential of all children. There is no longer any doubt that the GymbaROO programs ensure that the neurological organisation essential for learning is firmly in place and that these programs should play a key role in the education of all babies and children.
