Gymboree Play & Music


Runner (16-24 months)

Focus: Opposites

Where they are:

Talk about being on the move! At this age, little ones’ abilities are exploding: they are communicating, running, showing interest in friends, and can’t stop exploring!

What to expect in class:

It’s all about opposites: loud and quiet, fast and slow, up and down! Contrasting ‘themes’ help your child learn better ways to communicate. We move across the bridge sllowwwly and then fast! They’ll learn how to control body movements and use their body to navigate and problem solve across monkey bars, giant cushions, and through little tunnels. We’ll also practice repetition and routine with regular parachute and bubble activities. Soon your little one will be leading the Gymbo Dance!


Physical: Exploration of the different equipment supports problem solving, navigating skills, and confidence.

Cognitive: Repetition, songs, and interacting with their familiar adult supports language development, vocabulary, and memory.

Social: Our classroom environment supports social and emotional development.

Adults: Need your little one to take a good nap? This class is high energy and full of fun. In fact- you might want to take a nap too!
