Welcome to GymbaROO Sunshine Coast!


Come along to GymbaROO Sunshine Coast to have lots of fun with your infant or child while learning about early childhood development.  GymbaROO provides active and appropriate movement opportunities that enable your baby, toddler, and pre-school aged child to explore, develop, practice and refine skills essential for healthy neurological development.


The structured program is based on 30 years of research and development and is designed to ensure your child develops the essential foundations for school readiness. School readiness is not a question of age, but of neurological development.


Classes are developmentally age appropriate and loads of fun! Bring your child along to crawl, creep, jump, hop, swing, roll, tumble, hang, climb, sing and dance their way to healthy physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.



Which class is right for my child?

Our classes are developmentally age appropriate and are run weekly.  They cater for children from just 6 weeks of age right up to 5 year olds.

Find which age group your child belongs to and read more about the GymbaROO classes designed to foster the normal sequence of development for each age & stage.

Tiny BabyROO – Newborn to 5 Months

At Tiny BabyROO we provide you with lots of ideas about how to best to provide the right environment for healthy development. We show you song and movement ideas and let you know about what’s happening in different areas of development such as vision, hearing, movement and touch.

Non-mobile BabyROO – 5 months to movement forward (tummy crawling)

At non-mobile BabyROO we continue to encourage loads of tummy time, massage and movement. We help parents understand why these activities are important for development and later learning and we show you how you can provide your baby with the most conducive and fun environment for movement and learning.

Mobile BabyROO – Crawling & Creeping

Now that the baby is moving, the floor is their playground.  At Mobile BabyROO we show you how to use the floor for your baby’s best advantage.  It’s cheap and easy, but you need to make it a safe place for your baby to explore and roam freely! At Mobile BabyROO we provide you with loads of ideas about music, rhythm and movement; successful massage techniques for wrigglers and squirmers; movement ideas and games that have your baby in fits of laughter; and safe places for play.

PENGUINS – Walking to 18 months

Now infants are waddling like penguins as they strive to get their balance and body awareness, (where are my arms and legs and how do I move them?).  This is an exciting time, at last our little ones are upright, but eyes and ears also need to adjust for seeing and understanding from the upright position, things look different now!

KOALAS – 18 months to 2 years

At this age toddlers are walking with greater balance, running everywhere and climbing everything!  Jumping is the exciting new skill at this age with two feet together, and of course hanging with two hands and arms together.  Scooting along on push-alongs is definitely in! All movement actions in a GymbaROO class are now delivered more slowly in order to promote voluntary movements by the little ones on their own!

WALLABIES – 2 to 2½ years

Wallabies are really into jumping on and off anything they can find… including your bed! Each hemisphere of the brain can now control the movements of each side of the body in coordination, and by 20 months, many can actually move their body parts on their own, this is the reason we begin to do very different activities in the GymbaROO program.

KANGAROOS – 2½ to 3 years

Wow! Children of this age think the world is theirs.  They are unaware that their little brains have yet to fully develop the ability to function so that the left and right sides of the body can manage different tasks and accomplish different skills – such as is required to hop i.e. one foot hops while the other is held up doing something different!

POSSUMS – 3 to 4 years

Possums love to hang, swing, climb, run, gallop, hop and somersault, in fact they love all movement! They are also becoming far more social and enjoy playing with other children. At GymbaROO we encourage greater team work and provide Sensory Perceptual Motor Stimulation circuits that promote sensory integration and laterality. It is very important for those children of this age who need further consolidation of these stages, while at the same time increasing more cross pattern activities, where the right side of the body is balanced by the use of the opposite arm or leg in throwing, walking, running etc., in order to further develop the higher areas of the brain.

EMUS – 4 years to school age

For children to learn easily at school, they must have automatic movement skills. They must be able to use one part of their body independently from other parts, be able to cross over the midline of the body, and be able to sit still when required to do so. Children who have difficulties with these motor skills will have more difficulty with reading, writing and general classroom coping skills. A quality pre-school program is essential, but a neurologically based movement program, like GymbaROO, can help ensure your child is ready for learning.
