Gymboree Play & Music, The Global Leader in Early Childhood Development Programmes for 0-5s have more than 700 centres in 40 countries around the world and are expanding their selection of courses for young children at the Chiostro of Bramante in the heart of Rome.
These activites, which are conducted in English and in Italian (depending on course and demand), aim to develop children’s physical, cognitive and social skills in a fun and playful setting. Some of the courses also actively involve parents and carers, who can play such a vital role in their children’s development. In the UK, Gymboree has just won the national award, for the fourth year running, for the best activity on offer for pre-school children.
MUSIC | the course aims to explore the foundations of music through singing, movement and age- appropriate instruments. The lessons take children and parents alike on a journey of exploration through a huge variety of styles, from classical music to jazz, and introduces rhythms and melodies from the most remote corners of the world.
ENGLISH SCHOOL SKILLS | learning English is a game with Gymboree! Children build curiosity and self-confidence through art, the discovery of the alphabet and a huge variety of physical and interactive games. The activities used in English School Skills are conducted mainly in English, and encourage communication and co-operation between peers. This allows children to build a solid framework in preparation for future educational and social contexts. In each two hour class, the teachers involve the children in reading English books, in exploring and nurturing their social and emotional skills, and in encouraging communication with their peers in the group. Prepare your child for school and for life with the new “English School Skills” programme from Gymboree! Unlike in the Music course, this programme does not require the presence of parents, apart from during the settling in process which is determined by the teachers. To guarantee the highest-quality lessons, led by two teachers, there is a maximum of 10 children in each group.
