Welcome to
Gymbaroo Orange

We are now successfully into our second term and look forward to meeting you in the near future!

Gymbaroo is a neuro education program for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old (and their parents!), taught by teachers who have successfully completed at least a 3 year tertiary qualification and undergone extensive and ongoing GymbaROO professional development.

 
Our progam has been running in Australia for 30 years. Over 10,000 children attend Gymbaroo every week in Australia and this home grown Australian program has spread to many countries overseas as we are recognised as leaders in this field.

Viewing these web pages, you can learn more about what we do, about your child's developmental stage and about how important the various stages are to a child's formative years.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO COME TO GYMBAROO CLASSES IN EACH AGE GROUP?

The Gymbaroo program is currently a 5yr program designed to follow the way that the brain grows and develops from birth through to reading and writing at school.

The program is designed sequentially from 6 weeks of age right through to starting school. I have heard parents say after one term that "I have done Gymbaroo" and not understanding that they have only completed a tiny part of the program. They have only stimulated the part of the brain that was active at that time.

The activities are specially worked out for each age group so that you can make sure that you maximise each 6mths of development for your child and understand the importance of that stage for learning. As you can see the next part of the brain activates about every 6 mths in the early years and then consolidates every 12mths through to starting school.

It is like building a house and if any part of the house has gaps then there can be problems at the next level of building.
