Jangle keys in front of a child and he'll giggle for hours; teach a child to turn the keys in the ignition and he'll grow up, get a job, and drive himself to the key factory. Accelerate maturation with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a one-month membership with waived initiation fee and unlimited open-gym attendance to Gymboree Play & Music (up to a $95 total value). This Groupon is redeemable for learning-filled fun at the Gymboree locations in Mentor, Strongsville, and Beachwood, and may be mixed and matched between all three.
Gymboree offers a bevy of baby-engaging classes in which parents and wee ones work together to build tots' creativity and encourage development through play. Weekly classes are available for every age from the freshly born sapling to the 5-years-young wise wanderer. This deal includes rhythm-building music classes, imagination-expanding art classes, curiosity-developing pre-school transition classes, and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn. The one-month membership (up to an $60 value, plus $35 membership fee) allows you to take one class per week, with makeups available during enrollment if you miss a class. This deal also includes unlimited attendance at Gymboree's open-gym sessions (contact location for schedule). One Groupon must be purchased for each child, and each child must be accompanied by at least one adult (but more than one adult is welcome). The 45-minute classes help build an everlasting bond that will feel like being tethered to each other with ethernet cable.
Though Gymboree Play & Music sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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 more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their children's development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
