Kids, like tomatoes, grow on their own and bruise when squeezed too hard with a set of tongs. Today’s Groupon lets you coddle your human tomatoes: for $32, you get a one-month membership with waived initiation fee plus unlimited open gym attendance (up to a $154 total value) at Gymboree Play & Music. This Groupon is redeemable for learning-filled fun at one of four Austin–area locations—choose the most appropriate option for you:
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 ($72), imagination-expanding art classes ($84), mind-stretching school skills classes ($119) and Gymboree's most popular class, Play & Learn ($72). The month-long membership allows you to take one class per week, with make-ups available during enrollment if you miss a class. This deal also includes unlimited attendance at Gymboree's open gym sessions (contact location for schedule) and the initiation fee ($35).
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 classes help to build an everlasting bond that will feel like being tethered to each other with Ethernet cable. Bond with your baby, or exercise childlike energy in a public forum, with today's Groupon to Gymboree.
This deal is not valid for birthday parties, or toys. Valid for new families. Not valid for children enrolled after 6/24/10 and may not be used for enrollments that expire between August 9, 2010 and December 31, 2010.
The Little Austinite wrote a feature on Austin-area Gymborees:
- We have had wonderful Gymboree teachers who lead and guide the children through a variety of activities, interacting happily with the kids at their level...A typical class (regardless of level) begins with free play. The teacher usually starts by bringing all the children together for circle time after most people have arrived, and a song or two are sung. Parents are then instructed with the goals of the day, and the kids are free to explore the playnasium. – Julia
