Gymboree Play & Music Thousand Oaks – School Skills.

What Is Your Preschooler Learning?

Your toddler is growing into a big kid. They’ve accomplished major milestones and are beginning to do many things on their own. They are learning to identify colors and shapes, sorting objects, saying a word or two or even complete sentences. We celebrate each child’s strengths here at Gymboree Play & Music—from the active child who loves to climb and jump to the quiet child who’d prefer to do a puzzle or hide in tunnels. It’s important to recognize each child’s personality and support their individuality. Exposure to a variety of group activities allows children to develop their own interests and explore many different experiences with others their own age.

Gymboree Play & Music Philosophy:

Our programs are designed to support your child’s first 5 years of life. These are the most critical years of your child’s development! Your preschooler will encounter many opportunities that will strengthen their confidence and their ability to communicate and cooperate with others. These social skills are the foundation for school success. We can be proud when our child recognizes letters and numbers, however, we firmly believe preschoolers should also have opportunities to be creative and be makers of their own play. We encourage your child’s curiosity and interests and will integrate their thoughts and ideas in the program.

Programs & Activities:

Our programs are designed in our unique environment with your child’s age and development in mind.


Our curriculum, designed by educational experts, incorporates activities that build confidence, encourage curiosity, promote independent learning, and develop language, problem-solving and social skills. We do this through a combination of academic practices, arts and crafts, and play. Your child will be taught letters, numbers, and shapes as well as other preschool concepts that encourage a positive introduction into education.


Kids need to move—a lot!

Your child needs the freedom and choices to move and develop their body and their brain! Our slides, ramps, and tunnels are specially designed to encourage their balance, coordination, and strength.


We value socialization.

Social Gatherings, movement, dance, and sing-a-longs with our colorful parachute provide a familiar ritual for preschoolers who thrive and learn through repetition. We’ll also work together with bubbles, songs, and Gymbo!


We’ve got fun props!

We use a variety of fun and engaging manipulatives such as lacing beads, puzzles, dress up, art materials, and building blocks to support your child’s play.


We have an amazing team.

The teachers and staff at Gymboree Play & Music are trained through our very own training program designed by experts in the field of Early Childhood Education. We are here to facilitate you and your baby in activities and coach you in ways to approach a slide or ramp that is best for your own child’s development.
