Meet our Favourite Local Businesses: Gymberoo Glebe

This week we had the pleasure to speak with Bernie Good from Gymbaroo Glebe about the unique program for babies and toddlers.

What is Gymbaroo?

Gymbaroo is a Neuro Development program for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Our comprehensive classes are not only fun but our program is based on 40 years of evidence based research. Developed in Australia and now running the program internationally. We are recommended by Paediatricians, Early Childhood nurses, physiotherapists, doctors and allied health professionals. Our classes include bespoke equipment for all levels, exercise, dance, music, massage, visualisation, language and social skill development. It is a great way to spend quality time with your child and our aim is to help parents become the experts in their child's development. Weekly classes on a term basis are enhanced by the extra support we give families by way of video classes, free music, home activities and parent education included with your enrolment. Plus it's a great way to meet other families.

What age groups do you cater to?

Our Baby ROO program starts from 6 weeks to 12 months. The Gymbaroo program starts from 12 months to 5 years.

What are the benefits for Babies and older children?

A baby’s brain grows most rapidly in the first twelve months of life and this is a critical period for the correct stimulation it needs to develop those important pathways. Babies brains are ready to learn but don't have the mature connections to allow them to control their bodies. Babies need gentle stimulation and Gymbaroo is very careful not to overstimulate tiny brains. The first 12 months of life sees rapid development and important milestones indicate where a baby is in that development timeline. Gymbaroo helps babies achieve those milestones and gets them on their way to their natural development. They also have precious one on one time with their parents who are also learning how to be hands on with their baby. Through the BabyROO programs, they strive to help parents feel confident in their knowledge about their babies’ brain and body development and provide them with developmentally appropriate and loving activities that can be easily accomplished both at home.

The Toddler program now accommodates a child's increasing independence and desire to "do it by myself"! Growing brains need movement to wire up the neural pathways of the brain. Toddlers can explore their new found skills like walking and climbing on bespoke equipment. They can be assisted by parents whilst challenging their abilities and learning more about themselves. Our fun and exciting classes develop better coordination, concentration, memory, behaviour and perception. In addition, they have improved confidence, communication and socialisation skills.

Our School REadiness Program prepares 3-5 year olds for the next big challenge of their life "Big School". Whilst still working on gross motor skills children now focus on fine motor, language, social, emotional skills which help self-regulation and confidence. School readiness is multifaceted and Gymbaroo kids stand out.
