Bernie Good - Owner/Teacher

Bernie has been involved with Glebe Gymbaroo and Balmain Babyroo for 5 years. Starting as an assistant then training to become a teacher and when the opportunity arose to buy the franchise she jumped at the chance. She wants to share the amazing Gymbaroo program with as many families as possible, having 2 boys who attended Gymbaroo. Bernie owned a very successful Children's Birthday Party business and entertained children for 11 years before starting at Gymbaroo. Bernie's philosophy is that your child's time at Gymbaroo should be fun, stimulating and best thing they do all week.

My Gymbaroo experience began seven years ago when I took my then one year old son to his first class. He loved it and so did his little brother.

The boys' have since 'graduated' to big school and I am still at Gymbaroo! I'm teaching two days a week and assisting the other days.

I love Gymbaroo because it is such a fun and learning experience for both parents and children. I enjoy meeting the families, watching the children grow in their abilities, both physical and mental and seeing those gorgeous personalities emerging!

The past 21years teaching at GymbaROO has been an incredibly rewarding experience. Over this time, I have developed a wealth of knowledge in early child development through the high quality early education programs and the extensive training that GymbaROO provides. It has been a privilege to have seen first hand the benefits of BabyROO and GymbaROO, watching babies grow and develop into confident, capable and coordinated children. There is no greater satisfaction than seeing the children maximise their learning potential.

First and foremost, I am the Mum in a family of 5 (my three children all attended Gymbaroo) , and we love living in the Inner west.

Just after my son turned 1, I began working at Glebe Gymbaroo - that was in 2006. (I had worked for many years previously in Marketing and Administration).

For me, Gymbaroo has been about being part of a wonderful team; welcoming and seeing lovely families and children each day; lots of smiles; going home feeling 'rewarded' at the end of each day; seeing children make such fantastic advances and reach milestones they thought would never come; seeing the differences in children's confidence and ability from the start of a term to the end of a term..... It is a privilege to work in such a positive environment and wake up wanting to go to work each day. And after 10 years, I'm still here!!

Judy Simon - Assistant

Judy was introduced to gymbaroo as a mum and brought both her girls (the youngest just started school) to gymbaroo at glebe which was always a highlight of the week.  Judy's original career is in television production but she always looks forward to her Tuesdays with the wonderful children at Balmain babyroo.
