Gymboree Geneva

At Gymboree Geneva you are guaranteed to spend a magical moment with your child. And some wonderful bonds of friendship are made here! Once you have finished class there is a snack area where you can feed your child and chat with other Gymboree parents.

Included in all class enrolments is unlimited access to our free PlayGyms.

Once your child has reached the age of 2 there is a preschool programme for 3 hours every morning Monday to Friday.

We regularly run parent talks and paediatric first aid classes so please look out for these on the “news” section.

Bilingual preschool for children aged 2 to 5 years

We still have a few spaces in our preschool for the new school year 2017-2018

If you are looking for an amazing place which offers fun and high quality educational classes for your children then look no further!

Our preschool program is designed in collaboration with Zero to Three, one of the US’s leading experts in childhood development. The focus in our preschool class is to build the often overlooked but essential social skills that children need before they can master other basic skills required of them during the school years.

Our three ½ hour drop-off program provides opportunities for your child to interact independently with their peers and put into practice all the skills you’ve taught them on their own. Each class includes a wide array of activities that encourage peer interaction, promoting cooperation, curiosity and the capacity to communicate. These group experiences will help children develop the ability to follow directions, take turns and build confidence to accomplish new skills.

Class includes art, music and songs, developing gross motor skills on our unique equipment, fine motor skills and pre-writing skills, exploration of basic skills including letter and letter sound recognition. Our small class size and high teacher student ratio, combined with our multi-sensory approach and positive learning environment, help make learning fun.

Please contact us for all further information and a visit.
