With Little X’s new found mobility, he started getting really active and would spend the day exploring and climbing all over the house. So when Gymboree kindly invited us down for their Play & Learn Class for pre-walkers like Axl, I knew he would surely enjoy and benefit from this Parent-child gym program!

Initially, Axl was more curious about meeting his new friends and their parents than following the activities. But this simply makes me smile to myself when I see this part of his daddy in him… He really loves interacting with people!

So needless to say, he later did really well with all the group activities that encouraged children to interact and socialize with other children. In this level, activities will also be given to help children to refine their walking skills and work on their communication skills. What I love about this class was that it encourages development through play and learning and is designed to support a child’s growth at their individual pace.

Axl’s all time favourite activity has got to be Parachute Time!!! He also squealed happily when they blew bubbles for the children.

I was really impressed by the teacher who was very encouraging and interactive throughout the 45mins. In fact, Lil X loved him so much he even wriggled his way into Teacher Axel’s lap at one point!

Despite baby proofing my very tiny home, this was definitely a way better environment and safe place for my little kid to burn off all his energy and explore around without me shouting every 3 steps he took “Not the fan! Be careful the edge of the table! Don’t play with the door!” Well, you get the idea….
