It’s getting colder in the Queen City, and this rainy weather has us bouncing off the walls. It’s totally prepping us for winter, isn’t it? Well, today’s giveaway will have you bouncing for JOY, Smarties. Finally – a place to take those kids even it’s cold, rainy, and just plain yuck outside. Kids and parents LOVE Gymboree Play & Music – read on to hear about the new and improved Ballantyne location. AND, we’re giving away one year of free classes to each Gymboree Play & Music location – Ballantyne and Lake Norman. That’s a value of $850 per kid age 5 and under in your family. Getting excited?
So first things first: the new Ballantyne Gymboree & Play. It’s in a completely renovated and updated facility that makes them the most state-of-the-art facility in Charlotte in terms of equipment, safety AND cleanliness.
All of the equipment is brand new and has been re-designed to specifically develop and challenge children ages 0-5. It aims to give kids an opportunity to explore and challenge their own boundaries, but within a framework that is age-appropriate for developing muscles and bones. Every bit of the equipment and program is designed and approved by well-respected child development experts. Best of all, the entire equipment set-up changes every two weeks, meaning it never gets old for your little one – or you!
The renovation also includes new, proprietary flooring that is designed for active play and is uniquely able to cushion falls. Plus every single inch of the facility and equipment is able to be sanitized – we LOVE this as we get into cold and flu season.
Classes for ages 0-3 are “mommy and me” style (though dads are welcome too!). Classes incorporate both the equipment and open spaces – there is always music, a parachute and plenty of interaction, even for the very youngest members (the 0-6 month class is a great way for newborn moms to meet one another!). Beginning at age 3, both parent/child and “drop-off” class options are available. ALL of the classes comes with approximately 10 hours of PlayGym each week; PlayGym is a time when enrolled families are welcome just come and enjoy free play in the facility.
First class is ALWAYS free – Gymboree says to come by even if you’ve come in the past. Check out the renovations with a free class.
