How to book

All classes at Gymboree Play & Music, including the free trial on offer at launch, will need to be pre-booked online, via email or over the telephone to ensure safe social distancing at the centre.

Class sizes have also been reduced and one-way systems have been put in place in and out of the venue. All children and adults are now required to wash their hands-on arrival and temperature checks are in place. Additional safety measures include asking adult members to wear face coverings, supplying teachers with PPE and increasing enhanced cleaning in-between classes.

Parents can book a free trail, and view the opening week timetable online via
