The Importance of Early Childhood Development
GymbaROO is not a “gym” or “playgroup” for children and babies, but an educational centre aimed at helping parents and carers learn about the importance of early childhood development in relation to later school learning. Children learn more in their first few years than in any other time of their lives. Recent research has shown that appropriate learning experiences and stimulating activities in these early years can have a positive impact on a child’s entire life, particularly with regard to reading/writing at school age.
The program is enhanced by Parent Information Handouts which are designed to help parents gain a greater understanding of their child’s development and provides ideas and activities for home which reinforces what is learnt at GymbaROO.
GymbaROO has been successfully operating in the Penrith region for over 33 years and we has also expanded into the Liverpool/Wetherill Park region.
