Does anyone go to Gymbakids at Melville Centre? what is it like? what is the room like? what age is it suitable for? Just wondering if I will take my infant along.

Hi there,

I've been to gymbakids in the past and there was a thread on it ages ago which i think I've found:

Hope that helps.

The first time I went I took DS1 when he was 6mths old & found it to be a bit of a waste of a term but we went back when he was 18mths & I thought it was much better for him.  The last time we wernt was when he was just over 2yrs and again I thought it was alright but he just wouldn't do the circuit he just want to climb up the top of the large play thing & go down the steep slippery dip.

I just started again this term with my 12mth old & I really enjoyed it.

As mentioned in the other thread, there is a creche their for other siblings...DS1 loves it there and all the staff are fantastic.

Our class is on a Monday morning so we go to storytime at AH Bracks library first then I pop DS1 into the creche and DS2 & I have some morning tea in thecafe before the class begins.

MRC have a great set up but you may find it hard to get a place as the term started this Monday.

I went yesterday with my nearly two year old. He had a ball and loved the equipment. He couldn't stop smiling at the teacher - he thought she was great. I thought she was  ok.

We did Gymbaroo Booragoon last term. I swapped because I couldn't  get the time I wanted - DS1 was at kindy this year. I liked Gymbaroo - I thought the structure was good. The mat time was great for DS and he eventually got into it. He loved the treasure bag. The flashcard of the word of the week always made me laugh - but they mean well. Very educationally focussed.

We will continue Gymbakids but will wait and see.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
