It is very exciting times for GymbaROO and KindyROO and also for parents of BabyROO babies and GymbaROO / KindyROO kids! More and more evidence is being documented confirming the long-term benefits of our programs. GymbaROO / KindyROO kids are excelling academically, emotionally and on the sporting field. School teachers are describing those who have been through our programs as having higher levels of concentration, better behaviour and being generally more socially mature and physically capable than their peers.
Enjoy more remarkable accounts of children who spent the first three or more years of their lives involved with BabyROO, GymbaROO or KindyROO. Their parents also reinforced our program at home by doing GymbaROO / KindyROO type activities with their children and integrating the information they had learned during their classes into their daily lives. We cannot emphasise enough, how much of a difference this can make to your child’s future.

Lochlan is, and has always been, in the top five percent of his class in every subject. He is good at sport, he dances, sings, plays several instruments and is a state champion in poetry recitation. Lochlan is a professional actor and has representation in Australia and the United States. He has featured in over twenty films, television commercials and music videos. He is healthy, fit, strong and extremely confident. The future seems endless and boundless for him.
Lochlan has established an international charity with Jerry Lewis called the Jerry House Project. This charity uses humour therapy to assist and aid healing for sick and vulnerable children. Jerry is his hero; comedy is his oxygen.
Lochlan hasn’t had an easy journey. Due to domestic violence, he and his mother moved to the country when he was six months old. To get to GymbaROO each week, they would drive an hour to the train station where Louise would load her bike onto the train. They would then travel one and a half hours into the city, change trains, travel another thirty minutes and then cycle fifteen minutes to GymbaROO.
Lochlan went through the devastating loss of a brother and sister and he and his mother moved back to the city to ‘start again’. Before he had turned ten years old, Lochlan had become the loving foster brother to over eighty children, willingly giving up his room, his bed, his toys, even his mother’s time to his foster brothers and sisters. He knew how to bring joy to any moment and this became the focus of their happiness.
“This isn’t just what makes him great to me. Lochie sees life with eyes and arms wide open. He’s a really good person and now has a great future. I believe that knowing how to parent my child and giving him every opportunity, starting with GymbaROO, meant that there was a chance that he might just be OK – to see the world for its beauty and breath in every hope for his future.
GymbaROO wasn’t just a place for kids to play, or even just to learn, it was what saved me as a mother. I didn’t feel helpless or alone anymore or confused as to what to do as my child grew and changed, I had GymbaROO. As a single mother, it especially meant so much to me that the people there cared about what I learned and what I knew regarding how to be the best mum I could be. I did this on a single parent’s pension. I put this first. I will never be able to express my gratitude for what Mari-Ann and Mitcham GymbaROO did for me and for my son. It was simply the most important decision I ever made for the health, development and wellbeing of my child. GymbaROO should be in every state and country, a mandatory approach to bringing up children. We owe it to our children to give them the best start – and this is it. Thank you GymbaROO.” Louise – mum.
