The child-loving staff of Prenatal Plus Pregnancy & Parenting Centre acknowledges that each pregnancy and birth uniquely defines a life. Prenatal classes prepare couples for the physical and emotional challenges of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. Group sessions such as prenatal yoga help relieve the aches and pains that come with pregnancy. Once the baby is born, parents can attend mom and baby classes, yoga, and CPR classes. The centre serves as a hub for meeting other parents, as they begin shaping the way their babies will learn, think, and develop. Practicing songs and rhymes further boost healthy parent-child relationships.

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.
