Today’s parents are thirsty for knowledge about how best to nurture and support their baby’s development. Finding the best information is always challenging! That’s why I highly recommend The Active Babies Smart Kids online series to parents. It really is a one-stop-shop on baby development. The information is spot-on and provided in a fun and interesting format and there are loads of age-appropriate activity ideas for parents of baby’s right from birth! I am thrilled to be able to pass on information about this online GymbaROO series to the parents of babies I see in my medical practice. The information and activities provided are excellent for any parent wanting to know more about what they can do to help their baby’s brain and body development. I highly recommend it. Dr Justine Johnston MBBS FRACGP
As a doctor working in a rural area where there is no GymbaROO centre, I am absolutely thrilled that GymbaROO has put together this series on baby development. I advise all parents of babies to watch this series. The developmental information, the ideas and games provide a wonderful resource offering parents all sorts of activities they can do with their babies to help with development and bonding. This series will help every parent get their baby off to a great start in life. Dr Amy Sheil MBBS FRACGP DCH (Diploma Child Health)
As both a doctor and a dad, I know exactly how a new dad feels when it comes to handling a tiny new baby. It can be quite daunting, especially with your first child. For many of us, this may be our first time ever even holding a little newborn, so it’s little wonder that many of us feel unsure what to do. I highly recommend the Active Babies Smart Kids online series. It’s a great resource for dads (and mums) to learn about babies and development. It provides great ideas and advice about how to help babies grow and develop through fun movement, music and play. Dr Matthew Bayfield MBBS FRACS
The Active Babies Smart Kids series has so much value for new parents. We had all our children, (many years ago!) go to GymbaROO and I couldn’t recommend highly enough both GymbaROO classes and now their new series for babies and parents. As an Ear Nose and Throat specialist I was particularly impressed with the episode on Speech and Hearing and the one on Tummy Time. Well done GymbaROO. Dr David W Johnston Paediatric ENT Specialist, Sydney Adventist Hospital Sydney NSW
As a GP I see many babies and families with young children. I frequently get asked about what activities parents can do as they spend time with their babies, and how they can help with their development. I refer them straight to the BabyROO series as it is a fantastic resource, full of information and ideas and gives parents confidence in their parenting. Dr Monica Larkin MBBS, FRACGP DRACOG
What an impressive and wonderful website for parents and educators of young children to use! As a tertiary teacher of students learning to be educators in the early childhood field this is a very useful tool for me to use as a supplement to my classes. The information was conveyed in language that would be easy to understand regardless of your previous knowledge and with great practical ideas that are especially fun and enjoyable to do with your baby or others in your care! Great work Gymbaroo for putting together a great resource that closely ties in with the early years focus of learning through PLAY. Juliana Johnston B. Ed ECE Tertiary Teacher in Child and Family Studies and Mother of 3 Wonderful Children!
“I just loved your session on hearing and speech!! It was so incredibly factual, informative and fun! It’s a wonderful project and actually wished I had a little baby to bring along! Valuable life long skills leant early….perfect! :))))” Kathy Gerrans Speech Pathologist Wheeler Heights, NSW.
I’m a Child Health Nurse and antenatal educator and received your flyers about Active Babies Smart Kids Online series a couple of weeks ago. I’ve finally had time to watch some of the episodes and I’m very impressed! Reinforces lots of stuff we encourage our parents to do (tummy time, massage, vision and hearing stimulation etc etc). I would love to obtain more flyers, because I’m giving them out to nearly all my mums, and I’d also like to give them out at antenatal classes – the earlier parents have access to this sort of information the better. Karen Gurry Child Health Nurse and antenatal educator Kalgoorlie WA
Would you be able to send me some more flyers about the Gymbaroo free online series so I can give to new parents who visit the early childhood health centre @ Kings Cross. They are excellent and the parents have been feeding back they found the series good. Thanks Cathy Boot Early Childhood Nurse, Kings Cross Early Child Health Centre.
