Each class has 1 teacher and 1 assistant and a maximum of 12 -14 children (depending on the age group). Each child works with their ‘grown up’.
GymbaROO’s aim is to show parents how to help their children to reach their full potential in life and to prevent underachievement.
Each class is very carefully designed, specifically for your child’s particular stage of development. They are taught in a fun way so that each GymbaROO session is a delight for you and your child.
Each session consists of massage, co-ordinated movement to music, fundamental skills development, dance, vestibular games, vision and auditory activities, visualisation skills called “Treasure Bag”, parachute, rhythm activities, songs and rhymes.
As well as the teaching time, you and your child will be able to experience and learn new activities on our circuit of large equipment. These include slides, swings, big balls & rollers, scooter boards and many rockers to mention a few.

"High-paced, educational, colourful, energetic, organised, diverse play equipment and activities, great mum/dad and bub time!"-Parent
"My son and I both love going to GymbaROO. The instructors are passionate, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about children's development. GymbaROO has really helped my preschooler learn to follow instructions while having lots of fun at the same time. Highly recommend."-Parent
"GymbaROO has helped my child a lot in terms of developing her fine and gross motor skills, socialising with her peers and following instructions. She is a COVID baby and it wasn’t easy for her to adapt to this change but regular classes at GymbaROO helped us. The facilitators are very welcoming, understanding and helpful that makes it even more special. I have been a GymbaROO client from last 1 and half year would highly recommend it to every family with young children." by parent "-Parent
"We really enjoy our time at Gymbaroo. Andrea is a great teacher and my toddler looks forward to coming every week. I have seen an amazing improvement in his speech and also his gross motor skills since we started classes a few months ago."-Parent
