Gymboree, which runs a chain of clothing stores for children (North Olmstead, Mentor, Beachwood and Strongsville), also offers lots of opportunities for parents (OK, mostly Moms) and kids to meet and get to know each other. Each 45-minute class is broken out by age (0-6 mos, 6-12 mos, 10-18 mos, 14-28 mos, 2 years, 3 years, 4 years) enabling teachers to introduce activities that are developmentally appropriate. Gymboree sets forth the premise that by taking one of its classes for just 45 minutes once a week, you help build the foundation for social skills, cognitive development, physical ability, and self-esteem in your child. Along the way, parent can meet other parents to share stories and exchange ideas. Parties: A Gymboree birthday party is a nice way to throw a bash for energetic little kids. Gymboree gives you a room full of play equipment, an enthusiastic teacher, and a Gymboree class. You have a chance to personalize the party by selecting a theme your child will appreciate.
