Weeks ago, we decided to sign up Gymboree class for little Ju-Hann. Reason? As full time working parents, the amount of time we spent with him is very limited. Barely 1-2 hours averagely on the weekdays, weekend is the only time we get to spend with him. Often, we were so bogged down by other things ie house chores, assignments and work (sometimes) that I see myself guiltily switch on Despicable Me 2 (my virtual nanny) on the TV, so he could sit quietly & we both can get some work done. Now that he’s grown into toddlerhood, we notice he picks up things really fast and we often wonder, did we do enough to expand his leaning ability?
So Gymboree is like a pre pre-school class where kids of similar age are grouped together to enhance their social skills, at the same time, they get to develop their motor skills with the child-play equipment. The package that we signed up also includes flexible art and music class. After several classes, I’m glad to say baby Ju do enjoy himself, especially when it comes to ‘bubble catching’. 😛
Although the fees is astronomical, we think its something we need to commit to, whether its the money, time or the effort.
