Like houseplants, creative children require encouragement, plenty of fresh air, and at least one cup of water every three days if they're going to blossom. Nurture creativity with today's Groupon: for $32, you get one month of classes, including the initiation fee, at Gymboree Play & Music's locations in Sandy Springs, Marietta, Alpharetta, Buford, and North Druid Hills (up to a $114 total value). This Groupon also includes four complimentary open-gym passes.
Experienced instructors at Gymboree Play and Music Center caper about with kiddies, from newborns to 5-year-olds, stimulating young minds in music, art, sports, and school-skills classes. Along with the included four open-gym passes, parents choose one course that runs weekly over the course of the one-month membership. Tiny allstars gambol around, kicking soccer balls and dribbling basket balls in the sports class, which buffs up motor skills with controlled movements and stretches, while teaching kids how to confidently stammer gibberish in the presence of sports reporters. Tots can delve into creative pursuits, sculpting, painting, and collaging in hands-on art classes, or get learn to socialize and cooperate in school-skills classes. With a variety of sonic styles, music classes emphasize rhythm and pitch, leading mini-mozarts through exerises such as singing, dancing, and stage diving into a crowd of stuffed animals. Groupon buyers also receive a $25 discount on a clothing purchase of $50 or more, plus a $10 toy or gift credit if they enroll before December 23, 2011.
Gymboree Play & Music
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in locations around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their child’s development, their child learns to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of preschool knitting circles.
The instructors are super nice and it is a great way to meet other parents and make friends in the area.Lindsay W., Yelp, 12/22/09
